The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.
A foster boy is befriended by a lost dog who turns out to belong to the President of the United States. The boy decides to run away from the foster home to return the canine to the White House -- "Because it's the right thing to do!"

I thought this would be a good, funny kids movie for the family but it turned out to be the biggest bunch of crap I have ever seen.
Seriously, the writing, story, the acting, the filming and even the music are worse than porn levels of terrible.
It isn't even good-bad like Tremors 3, it is just poorly put together and executed. It is a case study in failed film making.
The only thing even remotely interesting is the weird sexual tension between the teens... and the dog and the mother. The long scene of the mother scratching her boyfriend that turned into a dog with the Sesame Street-like music in the background is just fetish material.
