Editorial Reviews

An unforgettable night awaits mild-mannered stockbroker Michael Latchmer (Vacancy’s Frank Whaley), who finally scores dinner with the girl of his dreams (ER’s Christine Harnos). However, their night together is thrown into chaos as Michael is hurled into one surreal mishap after another involving a lunatic cabbie named Jack Cloud (Brokeback Mountain’s Randy Quaid), suspicious Chinese restaurants, unbridled voodoo rituals and an ill-fated, anchovy-loving dog named Jasper who sets the madness in motion. Based on the novel by cult writer Stephen Dobyns (The Church of Dead Girls), this critically acclaimed indie comedy is a quirky, fast-paced delight from start to finish!

    I saw it years ago... Loved it then, and haven't been able to find it since. Was surprised to see it on IMBD & Amazon both, but wasn't a bit surprised to see it wasn't available.

    If you get a chance to see this movie, DEFINITELY watch it. You will be in the small crowd of about 20 people who can then verify it's just not a weird dream the other 19 had.

    Seriously...People look at you like you are nuts if you try to explain the movie to them, and they usually will deny it even exists.

    I just noticed I really didn't talk about the movie: it needs to be seen to be believed. It is, however, very good, and quite funny.

    Happened across this movie late one night; it was a twisted funny ride. Randy Quaid plays a cab driver that takes a young man on an all night journey to sell a dead dog. Each stop they make is more twisted and hilarious than the last. At the start of the night the young man just wants to spend the evening with a new female acquaintance; only to end up having to get rid of the family dog in the middle of a city late at night. Quaid happens along and leads this movie directly into comedy history. Great ride.

    Yes, Cold Dog Soup is one of those movies which makes you step back and take a look at yourself in a new light. As odd as movie as it may sound- I mean, what other movies can you see about a guy trying to sell a dead dog?- the movie carries a powerful message about respecting dead dogs, one that just can't be ignored in this day and age. So, check out Cold Dog Soup. It's the best dead dog movie you'll see this year.

    I saw this movie probably a year or two after its release (channel surfing on Dish Network). I wasn't surprised to see Frank Whaley, an under-appreciated B movie regular, but when Randy Quaid showed up as an illegal taxi, I knew nothing would be normal. If you're seriously into a predictable plot or a story line which follows some logical progression, forget it. With every stop of his taxi, you're hoping to see some resolution, but it never happens. What you remember is all the craziness. I don't even remember how it ended, but I remember it was one of the neatest flicks I've seen in a while. When I saw it on Amazon, I ordered it so quickly I didn't realize it was a VHS! I'll figure out a way to convert it, or something - it's well worth the trouble. To use a quote from Nationl Lampoon's Radio Comedy Half-hour: Once you've seen it, you'll never be able to say you didn't."

    Animal lovers will certainly relate to the death and task of burying a pet. Michael (Frank Whaley) is waylaid by eccentric cab driver Jack Cloud
    ( Randy Quaid) while trying to complete a task for his girl friend Sarah ( Christine Harnos) his life turned upside down. What begins as a simple
    favor will become a bizarre, all-night quest to bury her recently deceased dog, Jasper.
    Michael's quest, however, is not over yet. A suspicious policeman stops Michael from finding a resting place for Jasper in a peaceful park. Only
    Michael's unwanted partner, Jack Cloud, and one final surprise, will determine whether Michael will at long last be able to bury Jasper.

    Caught this late night on IFC. Pleasant surprise... lot of fun to watch and Randy Quaid was really good. The humor keeps you drawn, and i spent the next three weeks waiting for the pressure cooker. You could certainly watch a lot worse.
