At its best, Bark! has some good bits, but it also has some numbingly irritating sequences.

Audience Reviews for Bark!

½

I really like this movie. It takes a personal look at mental illness and how people deal, or dont deal, with it. Despite the subject matter its a light hearted comedy. Its definitely different, so if you want to watch something a little different this would fit the bill. I guess I like everything Lisa Kudrow is in.

This is a beautiful, creative, funny, awesome movie! It may not be what you're expecting, but it's definitely amazing!

Oddly likeable, but rather irritating at times. The barking got on my nerves after awhile. It's certainly unusual, but for some reason it all just doesn't come together. Offbeat to say the least.
