Suffering from writer's block and eagerly awaiting his writing award, Harry Block remembers events from his past and scenes from his best-selling books as characters, real and fictional, come back to haunt him.
Quite funny with some great little snippets throughout
Not spectacular, but an amusing half hour or thereabouts... the comments on natural childbirth and the lassie scenes alone make it worth watching. The premise is that a young, married couple, she hugely pregnant, move into a neighborhood full of dog owners, many of whom are quite irresponsible about their dogs. Sleep deprivation ensues and that sets the stage for this dark comedy. Judge Reinhold is the central character and he does well as the nice, affable guy pushed past reason by noisy or aggressive dogs and that beast most feared by all sensible men: A hormonal, pregnant wife. This flick will be especially appreciated, not by dog lovers, but by those who must tolerate them.
