A misunderstanding leads the suspicious Patrick to believe his sister's life is in danger. But when someone else accidentally turns up dead, an increasingly frazzled Patrick, with the help of his faithful dog Mars, tries to keep his sister from learning the truth.

  • A brutally funny and wickedly smart mix of pitch-black comedy and insane screwball farce... Unquestionably one of the best direct-to-video releases of the year.

Audience Reviews for A Dog's Breakfast

  • Sep 09, 2009
    Cleverly shot, technically sound, but way too silly. Most of the plot, dialogue and jokes are predictable and broadcast way in advance. My last watch/review was also a dark comedy, Just Buried, and this one reminds me what an average flick is and makes me appreciate that one all the more. I guess a good analogy is, there isn't enough "bang for the buck." There isn't enough return for all the liberties and steps they took with the storyline. They'd have been better off going a bit more extreme if nothing was going to come as a surprise. I'm surprised by the high ratings this movie is getting here and elsewhere. Is there a fanboy appeal in one of the characters from some other show/movie? I just don't get it. This isn't a BAD movie, but most of it's success comes from the creative filming and the story leaves a lot to be desired.

    When Patrick decides to knock off his sister's fiancé he inadvertently turns the family home into an inept house of horrors. Amateurish but buoyed by David Hewlett's hysterical performance.

    A moderately amusing and fairly brisk dark comedy.

    As with most comedies, it depends on your sense of humor. This was clever and somewhat funny, but not really my thing.
