George Hickenlooper's "Dogtown" rests in the long, lean shadow of Peter Bogdanovich's classic "Last Picture Show."

Audience Reviews for Dogtown

Not a bad movie. Jon Favreau was the best actor, followed by Mary Stuart Masterson. Not a very happy picture though. I like the score by Steve Stevens; sounds like a cross between Neil Young and Sheryl Crow, in places. Sheryl Crow is from Missouri.

Jim Brosnan

Clearly aims to be the director's "Last Picture Show." The tribute pales mightily by comparison to its model.
