British comedy-horror - the perfect film for a night out or night in with a few beers
10 June 2009 | by ro-70See all my reviews

I was at the first screening of Doghouse in the West End last night, attended by the director Jake West and stars Danny Dyer and Noel Clarke.

Anyone going along to this and expecting anything other than what they know they are going to get are going to be disappointed. This is a laddish Brit-com-horror. In fact its not actually horrific at all as everything is done for laughs. There is no real sense of dread as the whole idea of the film is to maximise the gruesome bits but you know that ten seconds after seeing a bit of goo, someone's going to make a classic one-liner. There are so many gags that not all of them hit the spot, but some are very funny but not all very PC (it is laddish!).

Comparing the original trailer to the film I just saw, I can't help but think that the original film's darker nature has been pretty much exorcised to beef up the humour. The new trailer would also seem to justify the audience the film-makers are targeting.

That said, I came out of the film remembering how I used to go to the cinema as a teenager because going to the cinema was a fun thing to do with mates. Nowadays I so rarely go to the cinema that I don't want to just go and see anything, it has to be something special.

With Doghouse, it really is sit down disengage your brain for 90 minutes, forget about the worries of the world and have a laugh, and then another and another. Don't worry about the plot too much (I don't think the writers did!) and just chill out for an hour and a half.

If you just want a film that is a bit of fun and you just want to be entertained for your entrance fee then this is a film to see. It is no classic and doesn't aim to be, in fact it probably has more in common with the classic "Carry on" series of films than anything else I can think to compare it to. Everyone probably had a ball making it.

After its cinema release it will be a great Friday night film with a few mates, a few beers and the obligatory curry.

Great soundtrack too.
