Jerry Cooper is The Dogwalker, a Tom Sawyer grown up for the nineties, who having fallen on hard times, is struggling with the reality of having to sleep in his car. When he quite literally stumbles upon an old lady and her dog, he suddenly finds himself caught up in her life and over her head in a twisted mix of class, race, age, sex, drugs, dog leashes, inheritances and contract bridge.

It was the end of an era, profit had turned to loss, fortune to folly, winners to losers. And the chaff was beginning to fall out like so much dandruff. Didn't have to shake too hard to get me to tumble though, I'd only ever been along of the ride. I just never cared that much. And now, now it was time for something new.

I'd have to say it was the cast of characters that reeled me in.
Will Stewart as Jerry is flawless--I've never liked such an unlikeable character. One forgets he's not such a good guy because the actor has charisma without working it. The performances down the line were unique and authentic--a couple over the top, but overall, fun. The friendships of the young African-Americans and the Senior Citizen crew, with Jerry as their catalyst, was not only hilarious, but the freshest mix I've seen on screen in a long time. The Dogwalker is a quirky comedy mixed with a dark integrity---the movie reminds me of that famous Sinatra quote, "Whatever gets you through the night." That's what the struggle is for each character in The Dogwalker, and it's what created the unity of the cast.
