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!
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!
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.
