The movie is an hour and a half of awkward silence interrupted now and then by drab caricatures. The actors are all good, but the characters are unlikeable and unbelievable. So many elements rang false I don't know where to begin. A The movie is an hour and a half of awkward silence interrupted now and then by drab caricatures. The actors are all good, but the characters are unlikeable and unbelievable. So many elements rang false I don't know where to begin. A neurotic woman who is terrified of allergies has 4 fur coats? In Southern California? I'll admit that I was biased by the trailers which portrayed the movie as a quirky romantic comedy, but I love dark, eccentric character studies and this was just tedious.

Dreadfully trite and completely vapid. Molly Shannon's acting is superb throughout the film, however, the main 'love' affair of the film is entirely unbelievable and one-dimensional. The script is poorly written and every Dreadfully trite and completely vapid. Molly Shannon's acting is superb throughout the film, however, the main 'love' affair of the film is entirely unbelievable and one-dimensional. The script is poorly written and every character outside of Peggy (Molly Shannon's character) is pathetically simplistic. I understand the main character is supposed to be somewhat of a tragic hero, but the idea of an adult human being with this type of mental tunnel vision able to function without constant care is ridiculous. Next, the plot functions slowly and without purpose, the primary conflict reaches a boiling point only to wrap itself up copasetically without any major consequences. On top of all of this, the film also sucked. Expand

"Year of the Dog" is a movie which started out well but lost its momentum as it proceeded. Although the casting was excellent, especially in the supporting characters, the movie became a pro-PETA diatribe by the halfway point. The main "Year of the Dog" is a movie which started out well but lost its momentum as it proceeded. Although the casting was excellent, especially in the supporting characters, the movie became a pro-PETA diatribe by the halfway point. The main character, Peggy, is impossible to empathize with as she becomes a crazy dog lady, and there is simply no reasonable message to take from the film. Expand
