Sleeping Dogs - DVD - 2/8/10

What's the worst thing you've ever done in the bedroom arena?

Cheated on your girlfriend?

Kissed your boyfriends brother when you were drunk?

Called out another lovers name during an intimate moment?

If you are of a sensitive disposition or easily offended then you need to stop reading now before I reveal what Amy did...


Is the coast clear?

I'm not joking.

If you are someone of sound moral fibre or a religious bent then you don't need to hear any more about this film so stop reading now.


So, now that they have gone...

She gave her pet dog a "special present"...involving her pretty mouth and her canine friends reproductive organs.

Disgusting no?

Well, yes, it is...no matter how you dress it up there isn't any way to make THAT alright.

Amy locks it away in the back of her mind and resolves never to tell anyone...EVER.

When her fiance encourages her to reveal a secret she has never told anyone else her resolve cracks and she tells him what she did. Understandably he is more than a little bit shocked and slowly their relationship unravels until it cannot be saved. Similarly Amy loses contact with her parents after her eavesdropping brother reveals the secret to them. Her indiscretion has cost her dear and she isn't sure that she will ever recover.

Eventually Amy finds someone new to love and when confronted about the secret that destroyed her previous relationship she takes a different approach and is able to secure a safe and healthy relationship for herself.

Director Bobcat Goldthwait takes a premise that, in less able hands, would simply have been the starting point for a "gross out" comedy involving lots of gags about "doggy style" and the like and instead makes a gentle and heartfelt film about honesty, love and fidelity.
