Enjoyable but a bit unsavory...
2 December 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Dogs is Dogs" isn't so much about dogs but is more a reworking of the Cinderalla story. Wheezer and Dorothy live with their evil step-mother. The step-mother beats Wheezer (and they show it!!!) and treats her own little brat like a king. What will happen to these poor little kids?!

While the ending of the film is VERY satisfying and made the rest of the film much more watchable, "Dogs is Dogs" is still a rather unsavory and disturbing film. As I mentioned above, the step-mom beats poor Wheezer and it looks pretty realistic! There also is a nasty guy (Billy Gilbert) with a shotgun who is trying to kill Pete the Pup!!! What was wrong with the writers in this one?!?! Was it written by the Marquis de Sade?! As a result of the very dark story elements, it is not a particularly good short. The only bright spot, other than the ending, is Wheezer's acting--which (thankfully) had improved since his earlier films.
