Sarcastic road trip across the mid-west of (Ottawa?) with a little dog.
14 November 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was cute and funny. Following a music critic who learns about love with her inheritance -a Jack Russell Terrier named Binky.

I've always liked Jeaneane Garofalo's dry, dark, and sarcastic style of humour and she spends a lot of this movie (while on her cross-country trip with her dog) having an ongoing monologue, mostly about stuff she hates. There are some genuinely funny moments here and I got sucked in despite myself.

Kristen Holden-Reid plays the somewhat jilted boyfriend, waiting back home for her to overcome her fear of commitment and he's always nice on the eyes.

This takes place in New York and across the Midwest but has an obvious Canadian feel to it and was filmed in and around Ottawa. 01.14.14
