A lifelong womanizer (Doug 'Dawg' Munford, played by 'Denis Leary') learns upon his grandmother's death that he stands to inherit her full fortune - that he was unaware she had accrued - pending his fulfillment of conditions set forth in her last will & testament, according to her strikingly beautiful, savvy attorney ('Anna Lockheart', played by Elizabeth Hurley), who would be charged with accompanying him on his journey in order to ensure he properly & honestly accomplishes the "mission", which is to locate and elicit forgiveness from 1 dozen of his former conquests, if he chooses to accept it. Bickering, adventure, road trip, and a few surprises ensue featuring lawyer & heir as they encounter an eclectic array of interesting characters from his past, eventually leading to an opportunity for him to reflect on his lifestyle. Did Grandma have an ulterior motive? Written by
I am huge fan of actor/comedian Denis Leary, and it really pains me to say it, but this film blows.
The film features one funny scene (in the nightclub with an ex-boy/girlfriend), and even that didn't make me laugh. Or smile. It merely made me think "That's funny". Compared to some of the outstanding films Leary has been hilarious in ("A Bug's Life"/"Demolition Man"/"National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1" and a deleted scene in "Natural Born Killers"), this film suffers a major flaw, considering it is basically a vehicle for Leary.
Leary is just not himself. On the "No Cure For Cancer" and "Lock N' Load" tours, he was ranting, chain-smoking and acting like a more p***ed off and (close call, funnier) version of Bill Hicks. All of his other film roles have let him act like this, so why hasn't this one?
Okay, actors don't like to be typecast, and want to prove their acting ability taking on different roles, but Leary isn't Olivier or DeNiro. He's a p***ed off comedian. When you pay to see a Leary movie, how he is in "Dawg" is not what you want to see.
Hurley is also no help, being as wooden and useless as ever. No more need be said there.
If you're a Leary fan, wait for this film to come on TV.
If you're not, don't bother at all.
