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>

Flat, uninspired movie
22 May 2000 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

When watching this movie I kept wondering how anyone would ever have released it. The movie was unfocused and flat and left me wondering what better things I could have spent my money seeing. The only bright side was watching Janeane Garofalo who still manages to deliver her lines and make them funny. If you were expecting another "Truth About Cats and Dogs" you will be terribly disappointed.
