A slick mockumentary from before the filming style became the secret herbs and spices liberally sprinkled on edgy sitcoms everywhere. A funny and undeniably pleasing premise; watching cute dogs surrounded by cut and dried comedy stereotypes.
The movie leans heavily on those stereotypes and can be comfortably dated to 2000ish as a result. It's not a grab bag of jokes that would fly as original in this day and age. Camp gays, a butch lesbian and a very 'childless' DINK couple lead the way in this generous selection of tropetastic characters; not winning too many points for originality.
However, plenty of individual jokes still land and the cringe humour is plentiful. The performances of the above mentioned stereotypes are hard to fault. And I never knew there was such a thing as a Norwich Terrier. It won't blow you away, but this film still stands on all fours for the most part.
