Aro Favourite Sleeping Dogs Lie


USA 2006, 83 minutes
Dir. Bobcat Goldthwait
Genres: Comedy / Romance, Independent, Black Comedy, Sex

Topics: Animal Antics.


Aroview: A disturbing dalliance with her pet pooch comes back to bite a newly engaged woman in this disarmingly frank jewel of an indie rom-com that is certain to make hands cup mouths, if not eyes.

More than simply a romantic comedy spiced up by a titillating taboo, writer-director Goldthwaite mounts an incisive, often hilarious and surprisingly tender-hearted take on the consequences and value of honesty within intimate relationships. Despite no-frills production, the script and cast do the honours, with the radiant Page Hamilton surely destined for mainstream success.
