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

This film, written and directed by David Hewlett of "Stargate Atlantis" fame, is a charmingly funny first endeavor. It features several of his fellow cast members and friends from the Stargate franchise, as well as his witty and lovely sister, Kate Hewlett, who has also appeared on "Atlantis."
As revealed by the cast and producers in the DVD commentaries, the comedy's delightful humor springs from the relationships of the people who created it. After all, in what other movie of recent memory will you see a real-life brother and sister tease and taunt each other to near homicidal psychosis? Or the intimidatingly massive Christopher Judge reconceived as a smooth, if somewhat desperate, gentleman suitor come to court his online dating hookup?
Although without a grand budget, Mr. Hewlett proves that he can find the funny in any awkward situation or gloomy environment. Even the rain, mud, and muck of British Columbia provide key atmosphere and serve as comedic props.
While many big Hollywood comedies of late seem to try too hard and go too far, the time spent with this goofy family is sure to put a smile on your face and giggles in your belly.
