K-9 [1989]

Director: Rod Daniel
Stars: James Belushi, Mel Harris, Kevin Tighe, Ed O'Neill, James Handy
Genre: Action, Comedy, Crime
Rating: PG-13 (Parental Guidance Suggested)
Runtime: 102 minutes

A not very subtle variation on the buddy picture, this fluff comedy/action story squeaks by on the surprising charm generated by Jim Belushi (About Last Night, Salvador). Belushi plays the typically acerbic loner cop who relentlessly pursues a criminal mastermind while trying to juggle a relationship at home with girlfriend Tracy, played by Mel Harris of television's thirtysomething. The catch is that Belushi is saddled with a partner, an unruly German shepherd named Jerry Lee, and the gruff but lovable cop learns to love the dog of his dreams. The film is predictable from its first moments and survives only on the strength of the loose charm of its lead and the inoffensive performance of its lead canine. --Robert Lane
