Cast: Lena Headey, Richard Lynch, Sean Whalen, and Kevin Gage
Remember that last great summer you had with your friends? The summer you hoped would never end. Kicking The Dog is the story of that summer - a story about real life. Yes, the characters need to make life-changing decisions, but they're also partying, poking boobs, searching the fridge for emergency lubricants, telling stories about sharing condoms and enjoying other distractions that make spending time with old friends something so memorable you'll never find it anywhere else in life - no matter who you meet. Satchem and Julie must decide whether they should pursue their own personal dreams, or stay together, all while telling stories about nipples and wieners. Matt can and will hook up with any girl that crosses his path, including the girl of his brother Robbie's dreams. The sexually frustrated Josh finds himself working at the local porn shop while dating the former slut turned good-girl Jen. Soon his interest in fetishes conflicts with her new found morals, leading to some interesting and confusing moments. High schoolers Robbie, Ronald, The Chubby Kid are doing their best to meet girls and decide the big party needs a theme - "No-Panties Party". They soon realize the best times are always with your oldest friends and the ones you love the most.
This is a comedy to watch after the little ones have gone to bed, the film is about a group of friends spending their last summer together before real life kicks in and they lay it all on the line. There is all sorts of sexual adventures revealed, I try to get this site family friendly so I am not going to get into details on what is said but let me just say some might be shocked well other will be laughing out loud like I was. This is Writer/Director, Randy Scooter Lammey's first effort and for the most part it succeeds at doing what it sets out to do. The cast of unknowns do a good job and the characters which are kinda hollow in the beginning become more complex as the film moves along and we get to know them a little more as the film shifts to a more mellow approach towards the end. This group of friends will discover things they didn't know about each other which will only bring them closer together but there is a lot of fun getting there. If your easily offended by raunchy comedies I suggest you look for another movie to watch but if you this sort of thing I suggest picking this up because along with all the crazy antics and sex jokes comes a softer ending that makes this a comedy worth seeing. The film is not without it's flaws but what movie isn't? For a first time effort I felt this was a pretty good film and I look forward to more work frm this Director and his cast and crew.
