No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Tonally, the film is a shambles, clumsily veering from cheeky romance one minute, to crass 'that bloke just spunked on my windscreen!' japery the next.
A feeble smut-fest of impressive tonal weirdness, which had me sniggering with it, at it, and in spite of myself.
Sordid, squelchy, bare-bottomed comedy is still the order of the day. And pretty feeble it is, too.
I don't know how much Newcastle Brown you'd need to put back to make this film tolerable.
A premise this barking was never really going to work - Heppell and Treadaway's romance plays out like a Byker Grove tryst relocated to a Hartlepool knocking shop - and some of the all-too-authentic night vision scenes will struggle to find an audience.
Dogging limps along like a three-legged mutt, neither dirty enough to titillate smut-seekers nor sweet enough to coax rom-com lovers into overlooking the night-vision humping.
The cast members have enough charm to make you wish you were seeing them in a film that didn't seem like such a terrible, terrible idea.
Despite strong work from its supporting cast, Dogging: A Love Story remains something of a disappointment, thanks to an irritating lead character and a poorly developed script.
