      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Though Sleeping Dogs Lie treats its subject and characters humanely, it's unable to overcome the low-budget production and Bobcat Goldthwait's pedestrian directing.

      Peter Bradshaw Guardian An evenly paced, gently acted and subdued black comedy with a subversive moral at its heart. Mar 16, 2007 Full Review James Christopher Times (UK) Hamilton is wonderful as the bruised victim of an oedipal insanity for truth. Rated: 4/5 Mar 16, 2007 Full Review Little White Lies Despite being thin on laughs and light on conventional romance, Sleeping Dogs manages to be both warm and witty. Mar 16, 2007 Full Review Bárbara Escamilla Cinemanía (Spain) A savage but elegant, different, fresh comedy. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Nov 5, 2020 Full Review David Lamble Bay Area Reporter Goldthwait's mission from the get-go seems to be a slyly subversive excursion to the underbelly of human erotic attachments... May 19, 2020 Full Review Dorothy Woodend The Tyee (British Columbia) suffice to say Sleeping Dogs is a comedy of rather questionable taste. Aug 23, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

      walter b the movies was ok, but make most of us think what would you really share with your partner? some thing you know that would hurt the one you care for, best to keep some things quiet you share things, but if it will hurt your girlfriend/guy keep it to your self, this movie was well acted and it was (acted) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/22/23 Full Review Mike J Sonic I love the movie theater theater theaters Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/28/22 Full Review Audience Member How truly lewd and vulgar can one comedy film get with it’s storyline involving such a disgusting sexual act on such an animal!!! Sleeping dogs lie is not a film you would want to see if you are especially an animal lover!!! Do not watch! You will regret! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/04/21 Full Review Audience Member Truly lewd and vulgar for a comedy film where bestility is involved!!! Unworthy of being watched or added to your own film library. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Goldthwait's audacity goes a long way, but it still doesn't make up for just incredibly shoddy filmmaking. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Amy, while in college, did something sexual that in reality is quite disturbing and has never told anyone about this secret until she is in a relationship with a guy who wants to marry, he loves her more than anything and love holds no secrets until...... A fucked up premise that could have been darkly hilarious, and it is in parts but boredom takes over every now and then. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews
