Being a big fan of Giovanni Ribisi, I had to see this little movie. I was pleasantly surprised watching this well written tale of a writer who has become unable to write, function and has run out of money to pay for his therapy. His therapist suggest he buy a pet, so the young writer buys a cute little dog to take care of and hopefully help him get out of his unhealthy daily routine.

The film is full of good performances and insight. The dog is completely mesmerizing as he does little to convey so much. The scenes with the dog just doing nothing with the comical score in the background are priceless! It's a very entertaining movie with a great cast and impressive direction by Scott Caan(James son), who wrote and also plays Ribisi's best friend. This is a cool film that is like a short subject, but has a lot to offer bewteen the lines. I can see this becoming a cult favorite!

This is a little film with a big heart. It is truly an independant film and shows what the genre is capable of. The always reliable Giovanni Ribisis is hilarious here as a down trodden writer with writers block who is miserable and lonely with life plus broke on top of it all. He has been in daily therapy for a year and when he needs to stop due to funds his therapist suggests he get a pet.

Our main character gets a dog and half heartedly tries to take to the new addition in his life. He desperately fears the attachment. Many characters enter the story and all end up getting involved with the story of the dog. Our writer meets a woman with whom he starts to form a friendship which is also new to him.

The dog is perfectly cast and has great film presence. Your heart will melt. The acting here is all superb and the story flows along and will surprise you with a very emotional ending. The self discovery our main character goes through due to the dogs presence in his life is huge and truly believable.

This film is very well made and well directed. It is funny but in a realistic way. Give this film a chance. It will put you on a true emotional journey well worth taking. And if you love dogs it's just an added bonus!

Remember the lovable pooch in "As Good As It Gets"?? The dog almost stoled the movie from Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt. Well this quirky little film, shot in Los Angeles, is another one! I rented this movie twice before I decided it had to be in my "Permanent" Collection. Giovanni Ribisi is perfect in this film as a "depressed" writer (In LA? come on!!) and the supporting cast doesn't let you down. A real indy delight.

Had it not been for that inferior movie, I would not have watched this one. There are as many brilliant scenes and moments as there are cliches and cheesy ones. I ended up liking it much more than I thought I would. I stumbled upon this gem purely by chance. I had just watched X-Men Origins: Wolverine and was quite intrigued by the female lead, Lynn Collins and IMDBed her. I found out that she happened to be in this movie which got some decent reviews on Amazon so I took the plunge. I'm glad I did it. Way better than expected. I'm pretty sure watching it sober would be just as good but don't take any chances! There's some really funny stuff in there. Take the bad parts in stride, you'll still come out ahead and probably glad you did it too.

The subtle yet powerful influence this little creature has over the lives of the humans he comes in contact with makes for an entertaining and thought provoking film. The performances of Ribisi, Collins and Caan are great! The supporting cast is also excellent and includes a sweet bit by Don Cheadle as Ribisi's therapist. Watch this film with someone you care about-smiles, hugs and a few tears of joy will be assured!

I wouldn't call the Dog Problem a classic- but it DID have one thing in its favor that made it an above average film- it included a lot of jokes that were funny because of weird timing, odd choice of words, etc.

For example, in one scene the main character going to see his psychiatrist said the king of ALL swear words which caught the psychiatrist off guard. It was right after the guy bought something for the psychiatrist and he refused to accept it. These little moments made the film funnier than it would have been had the story not included this particular kind of humor.

This really wasn't a typical dog movie either. Not like you really felt like loving and wanting to adopt such a lovely dog, because he wasn't a particularly pretty dog (matter of taste perhaps).

The style of humor this movie was going for had its shining moment when a bunch of people suddenly decided they all wanted the dog at once in one scene at the main characters apartment, and this led to lots of funny scenes that will make more sense when you see who these characters actually are.

But there were enough storyline twists, oddly interesting characters, and other things that made the movie pretty good. The dog does something at the end that was both amazing and cute, and at the VERY end of the movie, the dog does something even more amazing.

It's not a family movie because of constant swear words being tossed around, but it's a decent movie.
