Jack's a Dog

This is yet another reconstructed review from my Sundance 2001 notes.

Jack the Dog - there is a story here, but it suffers from so many problems. At the nit-picky end - how do these two very caucasian people have an obviously Asian-American child? Then there's the poorly handled sound and rote shot set up (line - cut - line - cut - etc). But what really breaks it is the very surfacy treatment of the characters and a lack of any range in the dialog. Jack the Dog does eveything but roll over.

Was this review helpful to you?
