Movie Info

A philandering bachelor finds he's sitting on a mammoth inheritance -- if only he promises to apologize to the countless one-night-stands he's had over the years. Dawg stars Denis Leary as titular playboy Doug Menford, whose grandmother has included a very unique and demanding stipulation in her will. As a result, Doug has to track down all of his trysts, with the estate's executor, Anna (Elizabeth Hurley), in tow to serve as witness to his confessions. As they knock on door after door, Doug and Anna find women both belligerent and unconcerned, and Doug begins to realize his less-than-considerate "way with the ladies." Directed by Victoria Hochberg (Sex and the City), Dawg made its premiere on the Cinemax network in late 2002.more

Audience Reviews for Dawg

A film that seems to be solely a comedy at first, but transcends cheap laughs with some heartfelt moments and insights into what really matters between human beings, and our relationships with one another.
Denis Leary is a fine actor who hasn't received the acclaim he deserves.

Super Reviewer

Dennis Leary is a well rounded actor and this film really doenst prove it but its has its laughs and snickers. The lessons of life you get from the film are not too far fetched but a little stretched for entertainment sake. Overall i enjoyed it.


I watched this late at night on one of those premium movie channels. This film reeks of mediocrity. It seems like the films producers and directors didn't care about quality. Denis Leary has a few funny lines, but not enough to salvage the film. Stay away from Dawg, as it will be a giant waste of your time, even in the middle of the night when you can't sleep.
