So Quiet on the Canine Front (1931)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another zanny entry in the always surreal Dogville series from MGM with this one spoofing ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT. As is to be expected, the story here is pretty similar but only this time we have dogs acting out all the parts. I really can't say I'm a fan of this series but each one is rather twisted, sick and surreal in their own way and that's reason enough to keep your eyes open throughout the running time. I found this to be one of the better entries as we get some pretty funny scenes including one where a dog para shoots down into some hay and another nice scene where the dogs are in basic training and they can't turn their eyes the correct way. The scenes with the rifles changing positions were nicely done but at the end of the day you still won't be able to call this short "cute" because it's just way too bizarre seeing the dogs being treated the way they are. I'm sure PETA members won't be happy but others probably won't find too much to enjoy here either.
