Critic Reviews for The Dog Problem
A lackluster comedy that has very little bark and no bite.
aided immeasurably by enjoying the little touches and all but ignoring the big picture.
Could have done with a strong voice to step in and demand repairs to shortfalls that are reminiscent of what often plagues films that are too much of a one-person creation.
There is [a Woody] Allen-ish quality to this talky comedy. But Ribisi is very appealing, Lynn Collins is a distinctive love interest and the talk is funny and quick.
Audience Reviews for The Dog Problem
The Dog Problem is a good little comedy that is quite original, and in many ways pretty crazy. I really enjoyed the film, thought that the film was entertaining, well directed and it had a good cast. But this is the type of film that there could have been a slightly better script before green lighting this film. The film for what it is a good, crazy comedy, but at times the film is uneven. I enjoyed very much the idea of the story for this film, and I just enjoyed that things go wrong for the main character brilliantly played by Giovanni Ribisi. This is a well crafted comedy film that is very original. The Dog Problem is simply put, a fun, entertaining and smart romantic comedy that is quite different from other rom-coms of the past. I very much enjoyed its originality of the story if you're looking for a comedy that's quite different, and then The Dog Problem is that film. Not perfect, but this film has enough good things going for it to make it an entertaining viewing experience. The cast do a great job, and it only adds to the films strength. The Dog Problem is a well crafted comedy that is very different, but still retains enough of the usual material we'd expect from a romantic comedy. But this film still has enough originality to make it a worthy film to watch. The Dog Problem is a good film that I very much enjoyed and thought that the plot and acting were great. This is a must see for an audience wanting something slightly different in their rom-coms.
Funny, I guess. It was a pretty slow movie and not incredibly well directed, but it had heart and a good ending. Good to see Ribisi in a leading role, and I always love Caan and Cheadle.
Giovanni Ribisi finally gets another lead role. he is phenominal!!!
