Funny. Funny. Funny. Throw in a couple "touching" moments that display the lead actresses talents and you have a movie that goes in a different direction than you initially think.

It borders on immaturity - and some people may incorrectly think it's immature. I think it's the exact opposite - I think it's some of the most intelligent sex humor I've ever heard. The topics may be immature in nature, but absolutely not the way they're handled by the writer or actors. Some is tongue-in-cheek, but that's because the characters are embellishing the story to make it better - like real life. You're gonna wish they would have used a few more locations - or even ventured outside the house more often - but that's being nit-picky. The humor and originality of a worn-out-genre will keep you interested and laughing and quoting the movie. But you're gonna have to make your friends watch it otherwise they're not going to understand what you mean when you say "You're not so little after all" or "this side never touched my wiener" or "she's husky - oh yeah!"

Very funny, if not occassionally crude and immature. But that's what makes it so real and often hilarious. On par with American Pie, and much, MUCH better than the recent straight to DVD remakes.

What makes this movie so appealing? Almost always funny, at times hilarious, and throw in a few tender moments and very real arguments, and you have a movie you want to watch again.

The box cover does not do this movie justice. It's not a party movie, as much as a movie about good friends hanging out, getting drunk, telling stories and trying to meet new girls. It's NOT American Pie 5, or Van Wilder 3. It's infinitely better than those movies which really on the "name" to sell copies. This movie is real and unique and hilarious.

Imagine if Superbad had more characters, but all the action basically took place in and around one house - that's Kicking The Dog. It has some cool characters and a few dorks, who are cool because they don't know they're not. It combines a very attractive cast, with some young, funny, chubby guys. Memorable scenes and great quotes. Simpl story, but you won't care - it's more about the footjobs, sex and booze.

It's not Kevin Smith and it's not American Pie. It's funny because the conversations are real. This is also what makes it unique. American Pie was hilarious, but it was a sensationalized view of trying to meet girls. Kicking The Dog tackles this genre because real is funny. If you don't get it, it's because you never lived it.

This movie was HORRIBLE. Despite some great boobage and attractive ladies, the movie had nothing going for it. The language was completely un-necessary and the plot was only active in a few scenes.

Often crude, but it does have a certain charm about it. The acting ranges from poor to decent. Cheap production look to it. It's a bit talky.
