OldPups Movie Reviews: DOGCATCHER

Review by Leonard Maltese
This movie was not what I wanted it to be. At all. As you can probably tell from the poster above, the movie that I saw–about some crazy rich HUMAN guy who seriously messes with a couple of wrestlers’ minds–had absolutely NOTHING to do with what is on the above promo materials. There is not a single dog in this movie. And ya’ know, I USED to know this! I think. So I’m told. My short term memory is pathetic, so I completely forgot what the poster looked like before I photoshopped it. I’m a dog. I did NOT like this movie. I thought it was about a serial dog catcher who turns out to be a dog himself. Twisted and brilliant. But WRESTLERS?! This is supposed to be a prestige drama! Make the movie about something that will emotionally resonate with the audience, like a dog who is addicted to kidnapping other dogs. Happy dogs like the dogs in the doghouse picture in the poster…tragically pained creatures who are violently mined from the happy chasms of their youth by a ruthless sociopathic canine out to avenge his brother’s death–WHO AREN’T EVEN IN THIS MOVIE! WHO would wanna see it? I can’t even imagine any HUMANS wanting to see it. Anyway, I gotta give this movie–which is actually called FOXCATCHER (I know)–three woofs out of four. I know that sounds way too high for the bad review I just gave it, but I ate like eight hot dogs during the movie, so that kept me pretty happy. Here we go: Woof! Woof! Do this last one with me, and…Woof!
