A Great Comedic Insight on Black Relationships
12 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite it's mislead title(The Definite Reason Why Men Are Dogs), this film captures the life of black faithful men and showing that all men aren't perfect but women are just as much as dogs as the rest of us. It shows insight of how woman will try to change you, deceive you, and seduce you. For once in the world of entertainment, men weren't shown up to be the villains in a black relationship. Which makes it hard to believe this was written by a black woman. I also liked the concept of seeing small interview clips on black men and troubles they had in love affairs.

I'll be honest, it isn't absolutely funny but it still is a comedy and it had me laughing every now and again. If you are watching this for a strong comedy then you might not like it all that much so don't expect too much when watching this.
