Dog Park (1999)

DOG PARK is a doggoned dull, largely lamely acted romantic comedy 
starring Luke Wilson (BLUE STREAK) and Natasha Henstridge (SPECIES) 
as a pair of canine-keen, recently axed ex's who leash out at each 
other after meeting at a singles bar.  (He recognizes her from the 
title area that they frequent.)  She invites herself to his house, 
they kiss, she pukes, and nobody gets laid.  Mixed emotions ensue.  
Let's see... supporting player Janeane Garofalo appears actually 
wearing make-up, lame-o leading man Luke Wilson was better in last 
week's STREAK, and the oh-so-scintillating script commands such 
godawful gems as "love is not your scuba buddy."  Oy.  Henstridge 
at least shows some promise as a romantic leading lady.  She ain't 
bad, I thought to myself while walking out a half-hour in.  Lemme 
know if she gets nekkid.  KIDS IN THE HALL co-writer/co-star Bruce 
MuCulloch writes, directs, and has a cameo...   (Rated "R"/91 min.)
