Sniff is a documentary wrapped in a fictional story. Two British actors, hired to be dress-up concierges at a high-end San Francisco dog hotel, decide to use the opportunity of their year-long contract to make a documentary about dogs. The trouble is, they're not quite making the same film. Starring Neil Morrissey, Amanda Plummer, Mikey the Guide Dog, Gabby the Search and Rescue Dog, and a host of playful canines, this film is a delightful, informative treat for the whole family.

I saw this DVD in the comedy bin, and I couldn't resist the picture of the bulldog next to the fire hydrant on the cover so I gave it a chance. I was very pleased with the film, which is an odd but endearing mix of documentary and comedy.
The film centers around a pair of British filmmakers who venture to California to open a dog hotel and make a dog-umentary. The thread about the dog hotel doesn't really go anywhere, and I started to get impatient with the humans in the dog costumes, but the pooches are adorable and this film has some excellent information on guide dogs and the unique bonds people have with their pets. It's a treat to see Amanda Plummer in anything, but her role is very small here. Still, if it's dogs you want, it's dogs you'll get, and this film delivers.
Kids who like dogs will love this film, and adults who like dogs will love it as well. Check out this fetching dogu-comedy.
8/10 stars from me, or four paws up!
