entertaining? no. propaganda? you bet!

I've never liked Molly Shannon. This movie did nothing to change that. It portrays a descent into madness in response to a pet's death. I'm a HUGE dog lover, but vegans and animal-rights activists take it to a wacky extreme, and that's what Shannon's character does. If you say that's not madness, (SPOILER ALERT), attempted murder of the neighbor you suspect of killing your dog certainly IS. Described as a dark comedy, this movie is all dark and very little comedy.
