While far from an original concept, Stray Dogs Packs an emotional whallop
11 December 2001 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

While far from and Original concept, Stray Dogs Still packs an emotional Whallop, Thanks mainly to the strength of Dot Marie Jones, whose powerful commanding presence and use as the emotional lightening rod carries the film firmly on her broad shoulders. She elevates the film above sub par whenever she is on screen and brings out the best in the cast, especially in her beautiful scenes with young Zach Grey, whom she seems to have formed a rather wonderful Paternal/maternal bond with over the the process of the filmmaking. What could have produced a rather dry , over down Tennesee Williams play, is completely rescued by this awesome performance by Miss Jones, thus making the film worth seeing, if only to watch how the strength of one actress can save an entire film.
