Action Comedy Crime Mystery
Mike Dooley has been teamed up with Jerry Lee, a German Shepherd dog, for nearly ten years, but Jerry Lee isn't as young as he once was, and Dooley's superiors suggest that maybe it's time that Jerry Lee was retired from the force. But there is a stalker who wants Dooley dead. The stalker, disgruntled crime novelist Devon Lane, became obsessed with Dooley's wife after she rejected his book, and he blames Dooley for her death. When Jerry Lee can't keep up with chasing Devon during a shootout, Captain Byers teams Dooley and Jerry Lee with a younger K9 team -- aggressive female detective Welles and her dog Zeus, a young, strong Doberman Pincher. After Dooley futilely investigates a convict he once busted, the dogs get him back on track by sniffing out Devon's storage locker. The room reveals Devon's identity to Dooley, and one of Devon's manuscripts reveals that he intends to make Dooley suffer for his words. When Devon makes a bold move by invading the precinct and taking Welles hostage...

Changed at the edges, but the core is still the same.
Ten years after the first movie, James Belushi, one of the most gifted, and
over looked light comedic actors of the last twenty years, returns as
Detective Dooley for this movie.If you are expecting more of the same from the first movie, you will be
disappointed, but this is still a good movie. Realizing that all the Dog vs.
Man battle of wills scenarios had probably been used up in the first movie,
this one turns slightly more psychological in its approach as it
concentrates on a criminal with a fixation with Dooley's recently deceased
wife after she rejected his book, and blames Dooley for her death.The script may not be the best, but the movie allows both Belushi and
Christine Tucci to show their good acting ability, while still retaining
enough of the light humour of the first movie to make it work, and the
chemistry between the two stars is there for all to see.An easy, light going movie, which, while maybe not worth a purchase unless
you are a true fan of either the first movie or Belushi, definately worth a
watch when it comes on TV.
I don't much remember the first K9 movie, which I've seen once. I rented
this movie out of pure curiousity and was not dissapointed. It is
entertaining and funny at the same time. James Belushi is solid as a rock
always, continuing to show us why he is so well suited to light comedic
movies. At his side is Mac, as Jerry Lee, his canine partner, who is
incredibly talented and well trained and is responsible for some of the
funny moments in the film.
Another interesting thing about this movie is that the plot is so different
from the first movie.
Whereas in the first movie it focused on the relationship between Dooley(
Belushi) and Jerry Lee, this one focuses on the fact that Jerry Lee is
getting old and is about due for retirement and Dooley's reaction to this.
As well as that Dooley and Jerry Lee have to contend with a bad guy that
ties to Dooley and wants revenge.
Quite entertaining and worth watching. 8/10
Has its moments.

Decent but not great
Dooley and Jerry Lee are still running amok on the force! Just a little
older and a little less effective. Things get a bit worrisome for
Dooley when age is clearly catching up to Jerry Lee. Jerry is forced to
partner up with Sgt. Welles(Tucci) and her dog to track down somebody
that is gunning for revenge, and putting Dooley's life in danger. The
good news is this sequel is nowhere near as bad as part three. The bad
news? It's still highly unnecessary. I'll give this movie credit where
it's due. It passed the time admirably and painlessly, something I
wasn't expecting. It still has the lazy toilet humor and it's quite
dated with an 80's feel. I love the 80's, so this type of cheese is
right up my alley. I couldn't help but chuckle at the Rocky style gags
of getting Jerry Lee & Dooley back in shape. That being said, I
couldn't shake off this feeling that this movie was phoning it in! And
to be honest, it was! There is much more action in this one than the
third. Belushi was out of shape, but not to an embarrassing degree like
he was in the third, so he's able to handle himself in mediocre
fashion, in the action scenes. At this stage? Mediocre is a compliment.
He's still way out of his element, running after baddies. I like
Belushi, but it's obvious he's nowhere near his best. He phones it in
half the time and kinda mugs his way through. He cracks some jokes,
some funny, some aren't. I kinda wish he showed a little more agony
about his dead wife. Christine Tucci is rather bland, but fits the
bill. She doesn't embarrass herself and kept me watching. Her romance
with Belushi wasn't very believable. Wade Williams is OK as the
villain. His storyline had a lot of potential, but it resorted to
clichÃ©s and took the safe route. It wasn't congruent to the tone of the
filmI did give this movie plenty of criticism, but I did have some mild fun
with it. If you put your brain aside, it is possible to get through
this movie with no regrets. The original is still the best! 5.3/10
