This film is a one-trick pony as you might have guessed from the trailers. If you think a shot of a dog urinating is funny, you'll like this film as the dog gets to do it twice. Pretty much that's the level of humor going on here with Kate Hudson trying to gross out Matthew McConaughey. She seems to have aged badly since Almost Famous. Kate carries the day only when she can show her unique mixture of vulnerability and worldly sophistication, which amounts to mere seconds of screen time in this film. Matthew McConaughey mostly looks confused and waiting for a punchline which I suppose is what the screenwriters intended. Is there chemistry? Sure, but again its confined to two minutes in the first part of the film and two minutes near the end. The rest of it is a play-within-a-play and hey folks its not Shakespeare.
