Two kids with real winners for Moms.
5 December 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Dog Tags is the story of two kids who meet like ships in the night at a porn producer's desert home. One's an aimless party twink whose fathered a child in a moment of inebriated weakness, the other is a very hunky marine who comes from a real white trash background and is unsure of his sexuality. The roles are respectively played by Bart Fletcher and Paul Preiss.

Would these two very competent and attractive leads were worthy of the film. Dog Tags is a film sending out a real mixed message. Preiss has himself a real winner of a mother in Candy Clark who's picked out a bride for him, another version of herself from the bar she tends. When he comes home unexpectedly and finds her cheating, Preiss finds out it's been with half the customers there.

As for Fletcher he's also got mother troubles in Amy Lindsay, a woman who insists on being a diva when her diva days have long passed. Preiss also due to Fletcher's influence is thinking real strongly of going AOL. Not a real good idea, that's a decision that will affect the rest of your life gay or straight.

Preiss is on a quest for his dad and for the life of me I never understood why Clark just didn't come right out and tell him who is father was. No big deal when he found out. Just part of a very confused plot. I will say the male sex scenes were handled tastefully.

Some interesting points in Dog Tags, but definitely below average.
