year of the dog

Allie and I watched Year of the Dog on Saturday. The DVD box said it would be funny and uplifting. But at a couple of points we wondered if maybe the person who wrote the box copy was on crack.

The plot offers some big bummers as it unfolds. But they're crucial to the story, and we were feeling good by the time it ended.

It wasn't your typical Hollywood fair. It was structured more like a really good short story. And Molly Shannon's acting was top of the line.

I thought the same thing about Chuck and Buck. The cover had things like "hilarious" and "joltingly funny". It was neither!!

I won't give it away if you haven't seen it, but it should have said "disturbing" instead :)
