Remember that last great summer you had with your friends? The summer you hoped would never end. Kicking The Dog is the story of that summer - a story about real life. Yes, the characters need to make life-changing decisions, but they're also partying, poking boobs, searching the fridge for emergency lubricants, telling stories about sharing condoms and enjoying other distractions that make spending time with old friends something so memorable you'll never find it anywhere else in life - no matter who you meet. Satchem and Julie must decide whether they should pursue their own personal dreams, or stay together, all while telling stories about nipples and wieners. Matt can and will hook up with any girl that crosses his path, including the girl of his brother Robbie's dreams. The sexually frustrated Josh finds himself working at the local porn shop while dating the former slut turned good-girl Jen. Soon his interest in fetishes conflicts with her new found morals, leading to some ... Written by

The character of Matt wears two different styles of pants during the second evening in the movie. When he's in the bedroom with the first girl, he's wearing "warmup" pants that button down the side, which he rips off. Later, when he's in the bedroom with the second girl, he's wearing button-fly jeans, which he rips off. See more »

I was attracted because of a combination of the movie poster and the low-budget production story (like Clerks) and left hoping this filmmaker gets a chance to make a movie on a Hollywwod budget. It had the rare ability to keep me entertained and laughing for 90 minutes - even my girlfriend laughed at most of the scenes - and she threatened to refuse to watch it after the opening scene! If you liked a movie like Dazed and Confused - with no real point, just cool scenes and conversations - you will enjoy this little gem called Kicking The Dog. If you don't "get" these movies, and never spent your weekends drinking beer with buddies, getting too drunk to hook up, reminiscing about the good times and generally having fun, you also won't see the absolute perfect humor in this movie either. Some people just don't understand getting drunk and having fun. If you do, you will quote this movie forever. "Just sit back and enjoy the best 5 inches this side of the Mississippi!!" It's not Clerks and it's not American Pie. Yes, it's conversation, but this is real conversation that buddies have when there's nothing else to do except get drunk and try to hook up - and it's so real it's hilarious. The conversation in Clerks was funny for different reasons. And AP had a $10 million budget, not $50k, so it should be held to higher standards, although I truly find Kicking The Dog as entertaining as Pie or Clerks.
Basically a bunch of friends get drunk, discuss sex, poke boobs, play drinking games, discuss sex, get drunk, get a footjob, have fun and a few even have serious issues with their relationships (but don't worry, they're getting drunk too). Plus the acting is amazing for a low budget film - actually probably better than any teen movie since Pie.
