Sex comedy takes a look at contemporary dating mores and hypothesizes that the new dating location may be the dog walk in the park. A mild-mannered man loses his present girl friend to another man. His attraction to a kid's TV show hostess goes nowhere because of her obsession with her dog, Peanut. He then gets hooked up with an overly exuberant blonde who overwhelms him. He even lost his collie, Mogley, when his girl friend moved out. In a funny sub-plot, the collie is going to a doggie psychiatrist who determines the dog is being traumatized by his mistress' sexual antics. Jeri and Jeff are best friends whose constant smooching simply makes the leads life less comfortable. Written by John Sacksteder <>

Just what we needed--a movie about dog poop
29 September 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Apparently the trend of human excrement movies has run its course, and now we are on to dogs. Many screenwriting textbooks teach that any scene that does not drive the story or reveal character should be omitted. Just how a scene about people searching in the dark for dog droppings does either is beyond me. But then I wasn't brilliant enough to get a movie into theatrical release.

This movie is a crushing bore. Actors on Valium spew an endless stream of the most mind-numbing dialog ever written, accompanied by an inscessant soundtrack of elevator music. Incompetent direction and camera work. Flat photography. Even the dogs are boring, and there are plenty of them. What's the deal with the smoke machine in the doggie psychiatrist's office? Did I miss a meeting? If they edited out all the dead air, this movie would be thirty minutes shorter. Then if they edited out all the boring parts, it would be its own trailer.

Who's responsible for this?
