Sleeping Dogs Lie (2006)

Image

 Director: Bobcat Goldthwait

Writer: Bobcat Goldthwait

After the greatness of World’s Greatest Dad I became much more interesting in Bobcat’s career.  This starts off with a very bizarre concept, a woman blew a dog in college and she struggles with should she tell her fiancé or not, and goes off in a bunch of different directions from there.  It struggles a bit to make that into a 90 minute movie.  That coupled with the very low budget and sub par directing makes this an interesting try but not totally successful.  I do like Goldthwait’s willingness to embrace a really dark idea for a comedy but this one came off as trying too hard to be offensive.  Most of the time I didn’t think any of the characters were very believable just as human beings.
