In Los Angeles, a depressed writer named Solo has writer's block after a successful first book of which he's ashamed, and he's broke, thanks to a year in classical psychoanalysis. In their final session, his therapist suggests that he gets a pet, so Solo buys a scrawny terrier that adds to his problems: the dog isn't house-trained; he owes money to a thug who's angry; at a dog park, he begs a woman he's just met to pay the veterinarian's bill when the dog is bitten; and his friend Casper has introduced him to a persistent rich girl who decides that she wants the dog. He could sell, settle his debts, and return to life with a clean carpet, or he could figure out why he doesn't want to part with the dog.Written by

It's good to love something, painful or not, it's worth it. I think the only thing worse than having something and living with the fear of losing it is not having it and looking back with regret.

Yes if you want to over-analyze the movie components a lot of your dis-mantling can be viewed as true...but if you just sit back and let the movie take you for it's ride, the over-all result is an enjoyable watch, which for me is what movies are about...not that they are technically sound in every category of screenplay writing technique...I enjoyed its whimsical theme, and light hearted flow it maintained throughout. I feel it was written more for steady amusement...and quirky chuckles than to to garner huge laughs...sometimes its cool to enjoy a movie from start to finish, when it keeps your attention and keeps you smiling....
