Falsehoods pile up, undermining the movie's reality and stifling its creator's comic voice.

Kenneth Branagh's energetic sweet-and-sour performance as a curmudgeonly British playwright grounds this overstuffed, erratic dramedy in which he and his improbably forbearing wife contend with craziness and child-rearing in Los Angeles.

Audiences conditioned to getting weepy over saucer-eyed, downy-cheeked moppets and their empathetic caretakers will probably feel emotionally cheated by the film's tart, sugar-free wit.

As crimes go, writer-director Michael Kalesniko's How to Kill Your Neighbor's Dog is slight but unendurable.

Branagh, in his most forceful non-Shakespeare screen performance, grounds even the softest moments in the angry revolt of his wit.
