ReviewSource Washington Post
Review Benji begone. There's a new wag in Hollywood -- Jerry Lee, who's got this year's Patsy (dogdom's Oscar) collared with his bow-wowser of a performance opposite Jim Belushi in K-9... The writers -- Scott Myers... and Steven Siegel-- follow the formula in their first script. Belushi is fetching, though he plays a cliche. But the movie would roll over and play dead without the talented German Shepherd. Lassie was classy and Benji beguiling, but Jerry Lee is a four-legged Burt Reynolds, just made for fast cars and chase scenes. Trainer Karl Lewis Miller deserves more credit than director Rod Daniel, the brains behind that lycanthropic comedy Teen Wolf. Just turn that camera on Jerry Lee, playing peekaboo from behind those big fuzzy paws, and you've got motion picture magic. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you might even feel like scratching.
