Goofs

When Duke's owner takes him back, he decides to give Harry another German Shepherd Dog, but it's clearly the same dog, its fur has the same color pattern. Even though Duke gets into the SUV and the "other dog" gets out in the same shot, there must have been someone inside who slipped a different collar on it (notice how the owner pauses for a couple of seconds before he lets the other dog out) See more »

Not Even Jack Nicholson Can Save This One
4 November 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dreadful Jack Nicholson vehicle from 1992 that is just not very good at all. Nicholson stars as a guard-dog trainer who becomes involved with a woman who is being stalked (Ellen Barkin). This is supposed to be a comedy, but nothing is very funny. The stalking side-story is used to cover up dead spots in the film, but this fails to work. This creates a film that is not very funny and not very dramatic. It is a film that is just in limbo. Bob Rafelson, usually a great director, just does not have it here. The screenplay is awful and overall the film is awful. Only the greatest Jack Nicholson fans will get anything worthwhile out of "Man Trouble". 2 stars out of 5.
