Critic Reviews for Down Dog

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1) | Rotten (6)

  • Ultimately, the premise is absurd and repellent, and Durr's gurning performance doesn't help.

    Feb 12, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Though the comedy is surrealist in parts, and exaggerated in others, this remains an intimate study of one man getting all of his affairs in order.

    Feb 18, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The laddish humour undercuts director Andres Dussan's stated attempt to "use mainstream comedy to raise awareness of this sad reality" of fatherless families.

    Feb 15, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • One or two of the more serious father/son scenes pass muster, but emotional truths are few and far between.

    Feb 12, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • For what's clearly trying to be a bad-mannered sex comedy, there's nothing particularly rude or funny here

    Feb 12, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • There's almost nothing cinematic about Down Dog, which might've felt more at home in a television slot.
