With the best intentions in her heart, his ex-wife persuades their family doctor to convince Frank that he is dying to see if he can - or will - sort his life out.


Critic Reviews for Down Dog

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

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

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.

The laddish humour undercuts director Andres Dussan's stated attempt to "use mainstream comedy to raise awareness of this sad reality" of fatherless families.

One or two of the more serious father/son scenes pass muster, but emotional truths are few and far between.

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.
