Low budget gem....
1 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie with a terrible title, "Pucker up and Bark Like a Dog", has a lot of heart. The obvious enthusiasm shines through, and character development is very good. Jonathan Gries and Lisa Zane have nice chemistry, Robert Culp, Paul Bartel, and Phylis Diller have minor parts, while Barney Martin absolutely steals the movie as a tough but ultimately compassionate boss. The film would have benefited from some trimming, such as the underground club scene. Even with it's budget constraints, P.U.A.B.L.A.D. is above average entertainment, and way above the typical low budget film. Offbeat and recommended for admirers of the strange. - MERK
