Audience Reviews for Wiener-Dog

  • Oct 18, 2017
    The idea of following a little dog through his life and the ever-changing oddball owners may still be interesting enough and the first few chapters mostly work. After a pretty random intermission (and the first unexplained change of owners) things get more and more joyless and boring up until the tasteless and insulting ending, which makes you feel as if you've been wasting your time. Artsy fartsy and ultimately pointless.

    I liked it, but that ending was terrible.

    Going in I knew certain people took major issue with the subject of some of the movie's jokes: Rape, animal cruelty, depression, death, and domestic terrorism to name a few. Personally I took issue with the fact that I was bored. A black-comedy anthology film starring a Dachshund seemed like it would be totally my cup of tea. In reality, Wiener-Dog couldn't hold my attention through even the first segment, and I didn't laugh once.
