Trivia

Filmed in 2000 under the title "Dial 9 for Love" (later changed to "Men Are Dogs") with a planned 2001 release. The production company pulled out just after filming was completed, leading to the film being shelved as there was no money left to finish it. Several years later, director Kees Van Oostrum showed a rough cut to several hundred students at the filmmaking workshop he was teaching at Drexel University, and, buoyed by their positive reactions, decided to find a way to finish the film. Gary W. Wilkes stepped in as executive producer after Van Oostrum showed him the rough cut, and arranged for the necessary funding to shoot additional background scenes, create visual effects, record a score, finish editing and perform a digital intermediate. The film was finally completed in late 2012 and released in 2013 as "A Perfect Man". See more »

A great idea is executed as badly as you can possibly imagine
23 January 2014 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

Nina (Tripplehorn) has had enough of her Husband's cheating, giving him the boot in the process. James (Schreiber) unintentionally falls back in love with Nina after she pretends to be another woman on the phone. I liked the idea of the "reverse" love story. It did an original thing by not going the predictable route. The way it is executed really disappointed me. It is so dull. I had no interest in the two leads. They were unlikable people that I had no sympathy for. Tripplehorn's character is easier to sympathize than Schreiber's, obviously, but that didn't change that I didn't like her either. Why did she put up with this for so long in the first place? He should have been gone the first or second time that she caught him cheating. As a big romantic, I hated this film. The dog stole every scene he was in as far as i'm concerned
