I apologize in advance for this negative review, but I wish someone could have saved me from viewing it. I have great respect for the talents of Molly Shannon, Peter Saarsgard, John C. Reilly and Laura Dern, but this film is scattered. One expects humor from the start, but only finds a pathetic, neurotic woman who can only relate to her dog and not humans. When her dog dies, she goes on a dating and dog saving spree at the urging of her friends and coworkers, but the plot just gets messier and messier. Instead of humor or sympathy, one is subjected to a woman losing her mind, breaking laws, irritating others and the viewer and then comes around full force with an ending that is so contrived and forced, you wonder if they just ran our of money or brain cells. No company would have rehired this woman for what she did. Not Funny. Quite sad. Unhinged. Hollywood - Hello??? I hope this cast goes on to better things, but I was simply stunned at how badly it was written and directed (thanks Mr. Mike White). And no, this cannot be compared to any film by Todd Solondz.
