Critic Reviews for Dogging: A Love Story

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

  • Tonally, the film is a shambles, clumsily veering from cheeky romance one minute, to crass 'that bloke just spunked on my windscreen!' japery the next.

  • A feeble smut-fest of impressive tonal weirdness, which had me sniggering with it, at it, and in spite of myself.

  • Sordid, squelchy, bare-bottomed comedy is still the order of the day. And pretty feeble it is, too.

  • I don't know how much Newcastle Brown you'd need to put back to make this film tolerable.

  • A premise this barking was never really going to work - Heppell and Treadaway's romance plays out like a Byker Grove tryst relocated to a Hartlepool knocking shop - and some of the all-too-authentic night vision scenes will struggle to find an audience.

  • Dogging limps along like a three-legged mutt, neither dirty enough to titillate smut-seekers nor sweet enough to coax rom-com lovers into overlooking the night-vision humping.

    Not as unique as Sleeping Dogs Lie but a unique romantic comedy.A couple times I just wanted to turn it off because it got boring in parts but I just could not do it ( I wonder why....) I think it's worth watching at least once but not more then once
