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!
Scott Caan excels at "slice-of-life"stories that tug at the heart strings, and take the time to examine human relationships. Once again, following something that he not only wrote, but also directed and co-starred in, takes you through the mind of a man trying to figure out what it is that makes people tick...and trying to discover what it is that makes relationships between friends and lovers both work and fail.
Mr. Caan writes what he knows, which means that like Johnny Ryan in 'Mercy,' the character Solo is a novelist. Also like Johnny Ryan - and Dallas from 'Dallas 362' - the character Casper is womanizing, oftentimes a jerk, and someone without a lot of depth. Well, Johnny had way more depth after he met title character Mercy, but that's another movie and story altogether.
It's interesting once you've seen several things written by Mr. Caan, how many similarities there are among the characters he writes and especially the ones he winds up portraying himself.Read more ›

Loved this movie, from the cast to the dog, to the music, to the brilliant graphics for the opening credits. Way more fun than most recent big studio comedies. Read morePublished on July 29, 2014 by lulu
