Editorial Reviews

Amy is a seemingly normal young woman, adored by her parents and in love with her fiancé. Their future seems perfect until he proposes that they share their deepest, darkest secrets from their past with each other...things they have never shared with anyone. When Amy finally reveals her secret, everything will fall apart. A funny and perceptive dark comedy, "Sleeping Dogs Lie" explores the absolute virtues of honesty in every relationship.

Customer Reviews

Great acting and a good story line.

If you can get past the subject matter, (referances to mild acts of bestiality by a young woman) you will love this movie.

If you want to vomit watch this movie.

Who would have thought that Bob Goldwait was capable of writing and directing such a tender movie? Not me before watching this movie about what is takes to sustain a real relationship.

The movie starts out with an extremely disturbing sexual incident that thankfully takes place off camera and then watch Amy move past this youthful mistake and end up engaged to a young man who keeps asking her to share her dirtiest little secret. Amy wants to tell him since he has bared his soul to her and she doesn't want there to be any secrets between them but she's afraid he'll be disgusted. After she tells her secret, we get to watch family dynamics work in uncomfortable yet easily recognizable ways. The final scene between Amy and her fiance and how she is treated after the truth comes out by the man she loves is heartbreaking.

This movie seriously addresses the issues faced in all relationships. How much do you share with your partner? Are certain secrets best left buried? These and many more questions are answered in a thoughtful manner by none other then a comedian (Bob Goldwait), go figure.... This movie is worth viewing for its moving message about love and relationships but be warned, it contains crude sexual discussions.

"Sleeping Dogs Lie" is not a bad little romantic comedy. It's sort of in the vein of a Kevin Smith ("Chasing Amy") or Judd Apatow ("Knocked Up") movie: lots of gross, over-the-top humor which cleverly hides a fairly sweet story. The movie probably would have done better, however, if the cute woman's big secret involved something that maybe one in a thousand women might try, as opposed to something one in a million might undertake. The problem isn't so much that her big secret is gross and disgusting (though you won't find me making a strong defense that it isn't those things), but that it's goofily unbelievable. At least for the character we get to know here. But the movie's basically a goofy comedy, so goofy shouldn't be a deal breaker, right?

The movie's bargain basement budget is somewhat apparent in the production values, though things never get close to shoddy looking. In fact, the movie is generally well shot, acted, and lit, as well as sensitively directed. There's a nice little soundtrack, too. Definitely not bad for the twelve cents they had to spend.

On DVD, "Sleeping Dogs Lie" features a solid picture and good sound. The DVD also includes an interesting and often charming commentary track, rich with entertaining anecdotes, by writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait, and several trailers for other indie comedies. No behind-the-scenes featurettes, however.

Though ultimately taking a cynical view of the importance of complete honesty in a relationship (in fact, the message seems to be that you'll be walking into a minefield if you even try to be completely honest), "Sleeping Dogs Lie" is funny and moving, and a nice surprise to discover on DVD.

From the outside people can right this off and make a lot of assumptions. Those are mostly a disservice unless you are assuming that it is a fun heartwarming film.
Yes, it is for Adults but give it a chance, it's worth it.
I saw it at a preview with Bobcat and I've been championing it ever since.
So low budget that they had to "borrow" equipment from the Man Show and costumes from Desperate Housewives. The garage scene is shot in a vacant house that was up for sale.
Watch out for Bobcat's Cameo.
Great film!

For a film from Bob "Bobcat" Goldthwait, there is a sweet, human warmth underlying the story, which may be somewhat surprising for those more familiar with "Windy City Heat" and "Shakes the Clown". Shot on a budget more suited to a student's senior project, with help from Goldthwait's and producer Marty Pasetta's friends, borrowed equipment, props and wardrobe, and often on "found" locations, and in HD video, there is a feeling to the film that the intent was to get this film made, even if it never even made to to DVD or theaters. Goldthwait mentioned, in his remarks at the screening at Sundance 2006, that he expected to be showing this to his friends at home, not as a selection for the drama category.
Melinda Page Hamilton carries the film, portraying her character, Amy, deftly and eliciting sympathy and understanding from the viewers. Jack Plotnick, playing her tweeker brother, provides the tension and the undercurrent of family dynamics required to clarify Amy's persona.

for Bobcat Goldthwait to create such a ridiculous situation with intelligence and sensitivity. The lead actress never flinches or tries to save face but goes for the whole hog and just owns every bit of shame and humiliation that ultimately comes her way. Most movies would have danced around the subject of beastiality only to take cheap shots and quickly change the subject.

The sex stuff did not bother me in the slightest. It might have if it were someone I knew in real life rather than a movie, but, then, that is what movies are for. Movie was interesting and moving exploration of odd corners in the abstract interior space of the human condition.

Why make actions that don't affect anyone, let alone adversely, your business? What compels people to admit things they may be sorry they told you? And, in a world of unspeakable injustice, why does relatively meaningless behavior trouble so many people? Writer-director Bobcat Goldthwait's SLEEPING DOG LIES raises those questions but leaves it up to the viewer to answer.

I resist explaining the setup of SLEEPING DOGS LIE because it would be like giving away the conclusion about Rosebud to someone who has not seen CITIZEN KANE. If you have yet to learn about the premise of SLEEPING DOGS LIE, I hope you'll avoid other reviews until after you watch this gem of a movie the public missed. One contribution here criticizes this film's setup because instead of being about "something that maybe one in a thousand women might try," it involves "something one in a million might undertake," but I think this one-in-a-million scenario makes the challenge SLEEPING DOGS LIE presents that much stronger.

The need to communicate, by definition, means taking the risk of being truthful to the point of revealing what others don't need to know. Maybe the only thing trickier is listening to understand, but not to judge. See SLEEPING DOGS LIE.
