EVERY DOG HAS HIS DATE (2001)
While romantic comedies are not something I normally watch this movie looked bizarre enough that I gave it a shot and it did indeed turn out to be pretty strange. It all starts out as a sort of Asian SEX AND THE CITY with a group of gals discussing their sex life and coming to the conclusion that all men are dogs. This theme will obviously be the main thrust of the movie and this may endear it to the more feminist-identifying members of society. From there it turns into one of those stupid Hollywood "people's-personalities-switching-bodies-movies" like FREAKY FRIDAY or something, except here it's a porn-obsessed guy swapping with our main lady's beloved dog. Then things get weird and raise a few questions. Mainly does this lady love her dog so much she wants to fuck it and would that be bestiality if he resided in a human body? Why does the dog character have so much trouble getting turned on by humans? He claims they smell awful but how can anything smell worse than a pile of dogshit and they seem to enjoy that scent on a fairly regular basis. In America, I assume, this would most likely be a kids movie but here it's clearly going for a more adult audience with it's sexual hijinks, peeping Toms and some parts where dogs are threatened to be chopped up and eaten by various folks. Who exactly was this made for besides weirdos who enjoy bizarre cinema? There's a super-fake looking dog puppet head that shows up in the movie for like 5 seconds. Why would they use that for the poster shot??? And finally why the hell is there a blue and purple dog, who don't even show up in the movie, on the DVD cover for this? These questions are sadly never fully answered and this is a pretty dumb movie overall but I will at least give it a couple of points for being unique in its dumbness.
