Storyline

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 <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Trivia

In one scene in the movie, Andy goes into a bar with a bicycle wheel, saying that someone had stolen the rest of his bike. Director and co-star Bruce McCulloch once performed a skit on "Kids in the Hall" where he played a man whose bicycle wheel had been stolen, but the rest of the bike had been left behind. See more »

Quotes

Andy: You know what, Jeff? You're wrong! 'Cause it's not about the other flesh. It's about being with the same woman night after night, and cuddling with her until you wear a spot on her back. Getting to know her, watching her change and watching how it changes you.

Somebody tell me how it ended
18 September 2000 | by (Washington State) – See all my reviews

My wife and I are regular dog park visitors, and we rented this movie purely on the title. We hoped that Janeane Garofalo would be as good as she was in The Truth About Cats and Dogs. The Truth about Dog Park is that it ain't about dogs, it ain't about parks, it ain't funny, it ain't sexy, it ain't about Janeane Garofalo, and it ain't worth $1.99 on the discount rack.
