MORE DOGS THAN BONES is one of those films you pick up in the video rental store when your first, second, and third choices are unavailable. You convince yourself that it looks reasonably clever. Then, after watching it, the self-recrimination is "What was I thinking?"
The film opens as Las Vegas mobster Victoria "Vic" Galleti (Mercedes Ruehl) and her henchmen are packing up a million bucks in Franklins that she'll courier to Los Angeles and turn over to her boss. Vic isn't a warm and sensitive lady. On the way to the airport, she so verbally abuses her driver that, after she's in the air, he drops a dime to LA Detective Darren Cody (Peter Coyote) to tell him Galletti is on the way. Then, so Vic's in-flight entertainment can be the anticipation of arrest, the driver calls her cell phone and tells her that he's ratted. Enjoy the slammer, babe!
Now desperate, Victoria stashes the money in the carry-on of fellow passenger Raj Lukla (Chaim Jeraffi), a visitor from India on his way to LA to visit his cabdriver nephew, Andy (Ajay Naidu). Vic takes note of Andy's address, which is on Raj's bag. Later, after thumbing her nose at Cody, Galleti sends two assassins, Desalvo (Joe Mantegna) and Quinn (Paul Hipp), to recover the swag. After an initial faux pas involving gunplay and mistaken identity, the two thugs confront Andy and Raj only to learn that the former's dog, Socrates (Sarge), trained to pick up luggage with his teeth, has apparently run off with Raj's bag and buried it. And Socrates isn't talking.
After viewing this film with me, my wife remarked that a decent kernel of a plot was lost amidst excessive padding and bad acting. Well, at a run time of 99 minutes, restorative editing might have yielded a 3-star nugget of, say, 10 minutes.

Dialog written by an 11 year old, basically, you'd have to be a complete chump to enjoy this "dog". You'd be better entertained stabbing yourself with a fork.

We DID pick it up at the video rental store because our top choices weren't available, AND because of the cast. Big mistake! Haschka says it all perfectly.
Amen, and forget this one.

This was a good movie. I enjoyed it. It entertained me. It made me laugh. It kept me guessing. I enjoyed the music of Stewart Copland, which is worth an extra star right there.
