Sniff: The Dog Movie

This canine-centric bit of cinema is a hybrid of comedy and documentary. Two British actors (Neil Morrissey and Richard Huw) are hired by Juliette (Amanda Plummer) to be dress-up concierges at a posh San Francisco dog hotel. They decide to use their time away from home to make a documentary about dogs. Trouble is, they're not quite making the same film. Outgoing Neil favors heartwarming vignettes about dogs that skateboard and surf, but his bookish sidekick Richard is drawn to serious stories about the training of guide dogs and search-and-rescue dogs. Their documentary segments are woven throughout the narrative. 90 minutes
