Storyline

If you've never been good at anything in your life, why would murder be any different? A Dog's Breakfast is a head smacking, bone breaking, fiancé bashing romp, about a family that just loves themselves to pieces. Patrick has always had a somewhat combative relationship with his little sister Marilyn. But when she brings home her new TV star fiancé Ryan, it's all out war. When Patrick fails to drive a wedge between the happy couple, he reaches for sharper instruments. Every family has a few skeletons in the closet; A Dog's Breakfast is the nightmarishly funny mess Patrick makes when he tries to add another to his. Written by David Hewlett

Brilliant film
20 February 2007 | by redphoniex86See all my reviews

This Movie was brilliant. Very funny and had me laughing all the way though. It kept you guessing till right near the end. I would recommend this film to anyone who has a sense of humour. David Hewlett has done a fantastic job with this. You can see the British side of the humour clearly but anyone from anywhere will find this funny. See this film. You wouldn't regret it. David, i hope you do something else cos i'll be right at the front of the queue. I have not spoken to one person who hasn't loved this film. It's been awhile since i've been to see something and laughed so hard. This is a film for all the family of any age. Thank you. Sarah.
