All Critics (2)

You know you're in trouble when the title of your movie comes from a moment in which a character steps on a pile of dog excrement.

The acting is not nearly as bad as you'd expect.

Audience Reviews for Backyard Dogs


Bree Turner is awesome, however here she is just merely so-so. What she has to work with is totally below excrement. The story focuses on two young men who are trying to make it in the world of wresting by conquering the lowest form - backyard wrestling. They hire a savvy techie to create a website that skyrockets them to fame in their field - which probably means 12 people watched them. Garbage.
