A slobbery love story between man and mans best friend. After a murder, anal-retentive cop Scott Turner (Tom Hanks) takes in the victims ugly, poorly house-trained dog Hooch in the hopes the mangy mutt will lead him to the killer. After destroying Turners immaculate house, Hooch makes like Lassie and leads Turner to a money-laundering operation, then (spoiler alert!) gives his canine life to save Turners. Sure, its no Saving Private Ryan, but Tom Hanks delivers a memorable performance despite competing for face-time with an incorrigible scene-stealer.

A classic bromance, featuring three buddies, each in the throes of a mid-life crisis who get in touch with their inner-machismo on a two-week cattle drive. Mitch (Billy Crystal), Phil (Daniel Stern) and Ed (Bruno Kirby) live through stampedes, the birth of a calf, and a dust-up with hillbilly cowboys. The film spawned the career comeback Jack Palance, whos grizzled cowpoke Curly had the films best line: I crap bigger than you!
