If you've never been good at anything in your life, why would murder be any different? A Dog's Breakfast is a head smacking, bone breaking, fiancé bashing romp, about a family that just loves themselves to pieces. Patrick has always had a somewhat combative relationship with his little sister Marilyn. But when she brings home her new TV star fiancé Ryan, it's all out war. When Patrick fails to drive a wedge between the happy couple, he reaches for sharper instruments. Every family has a few skeletons in the closet; A Dog's Breakfast is the nightmarishly funny mess Patrick makes when he tries to add another to his. Written by
After the end credits, "A Film by" appears, followed by a brief scene showing the back of the house from the movie, where the cast and crew shout "all of us!" someone yells "Wooh!". David Hewlett says "Now turn that bloody thing off!". Then the URL adogsbreakfastmovie.com appears. See more »
You have to see this film. I mean what more can I say, it's just so funny your sides will split! Well written, great actors, gorgeous mutt. The perfect combination.
I was lucky enough to attend the London screening of ADB at the beginning of February 2007, with Mr David Hewlett, his sister Kate, fiancé Jane and producer John Lenic from Stargate in attendance to answer questions after the show. It was a great idea - a sort of 'book tour' for a film. Really made it into an event to remember
If it only goes straight to DVD - BUY IT! Whichever venue it is released in, do your untmost to see it.
Well done David for your directorial debut - gonna be a hit.
Roll on the next film
