Disney+’s ‘Turner & Hooch’: TV Review

The 1989 Tom Hanks vehicle has been turned into a like-minded series about a fastidious young U.S. marshal paired with a slobbering dog. When pandering to nostalgia, it’s probably important to be aware of what your intended audience is actually nostalgic for. As best I can figure it, when it...

'Turner & Hooch' goes to the dogs with a toothless Disney+ revival

(CNN) — Who's a good show? Not "Turner & Hooch," which goes to the dogs in the wrong way, leaving behind a Disney+ series that's basically a remake but tries too hard to position itself as a sort-of revival. The result is a semi-confused cop drama that no amount of drooling and soulful puppy-dog eyes can fix.

Turner & Hooch Series Premiere Review - "Forever and a Dog"

Turner & Hooch premieres Wednesday, July 21 on Disney+. Disney's new Turner & Hooch series is a charming follow-up to the original 1989 film, featuring Josh Peck (Drake & Josh, The Wackness) as the son of Tom Hanks' cop character and a new rambunctious, order-destroying hound ready to sloppily sniff out all the clues that evade local law enforcement.

Stream It Or Skip It: ‘Turner & Hooch’ On Disney+, A Continuation Of The Tom Hanks Film, With A New Generation Of Cop And Slobbering Dog

Ever heard of the concept of a “legacy sequel”? It’s a sequel to a film or series that takes place years after the original, where the characters have some sort of connection to the original characters. More than likely, that connection is generational; it’s someone’s kid or grandkid. That’s what the Disney+ reboot of the1989 Tom Hanks comedy Turner & Hooch is. But is it good?

‘Turner & Hooch’: A Dog Has His Day Again

In 1989, just months after he earned his first Oscar nomination for Big, and a few years before he went on a run of critical and commercial success that’s nearly unrivaled in the history of cinema, Tom Hanks starred in a series of middling movies that never would’ve suggested the megastar he’d become. One of these was Turner & Hooch, which starred Hanks as fastidious small-town cop Scott Turner, whose life is upended when he takes in a big, messy French mastiff named Hooch. It was a modest success, but reviews were mixed, and many audience members seemed more charmed by...

Disney Plus’ Turner & Hooch sequel series bites off more than it can chew

In the year and a half since its launch, Disney+ has mostly stuck to the familiar, ordering up a slate of Marvel and Star Wars spin-offs, and reviving well-known franchises like The Mighty Ducks and High School Musical. Along with behind-the-scenes looks at these series with built-in fanbases, there have been a few true originals, including reality competition series Encore! and scripted sports drama Big Shot. But it’s just too darn easy for the streamer to pull a title from its coffers of existing IP and give it the reboot or spin-off treatment. With the legacy sequel Turner & Hooch, Disney+ takes another shot at a TV spin-off of Roger Spottiswoode’s 1989 film of the same title.

Turner & Hooch Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Forever and a Dog

With reboots and revivals ruling the TV development slate over the last few years, I had reservations about a TV show sequel to Turner & Hooch. For the most part, expanding franchises usually results in people wanting the project to disappear from existence because of how detrimental they are to the memory of the original.

What’s On Tonight: ‘Turner & Hooch’ And ‘Sexy Beasts’ Present Two Very Different Views Of Man’s Best Friend

Sexy Beasts (Netflix series) — A dating show where no contestant knows what anyone else (including their opponents and the “picker”) looks like, so that everything’s based upon personality? That sounds rather unorthodox. A dating show in which said contestants (and the picker) are clad in “fantastical, cutting edge prosthetics” to transform them into animals, aliens, robots, and more? This sounds completely off-the-hook, as well as fascinating. No one will be able to look away from this hot mess.
