Movie Info

Fast-talking, fast-thinking, fast-living -- oh to be a career dishwasher, without a care in the world other than getting the grime and grease off other peoples' dinner plates. Morgan (Sean Astin) and Jason (Matthew Lillard) have found the Zen in their chosen profession as itinerant dishwashers, scrubbing pots and pans at restaurants at night and by day chasing their dream of finding the perfect wave to surf. They travel up and down the West Coast, insouciantly eschewing a more staid and steady lifestyle, choosing instead to move from one eatery to the next. They brag about what little money and earthly things they possess, and they revel in their romantic freedom. Their peripatetic dishwashing comes to a bubbly stop once Morgan meets topless dancer Anne (Shannon Elizabeth) and decides to make her his -- although she refuses to have anything to do with him. Naturally, a conflict arises with Jason, as this courtship goes against their shared philosophy of rootless rebellion. Can the boys come to a mutually beneficial agreement, or is this the end of the proud "dish dogs"?more

Audience Reviews for Dish Dogs


Fuck me. I liked it. It was a mess and attempted to be ironically philosophical and was a trite mess of love and fear of such, but still...I saw it on tv about 5 or so years ago and yet, I can't stop liking it. I know the original screenwriter was displeased by it mostly, but even so, it was worth the dollar or so you will pay for it on Amazon or some other similar site. Also, added binus, Shannon Elizibeth, surprise surprise, is a stripper. By bonus, I mean totally normal. But really kids, its good. Am I drunk? Yes. Still a pretty decent movie to watch even though Mathew Lillard is a fucking tool and couldn't act his way out of Oprah's Vajayjay? Yeah, why not?

John Roberts
