ReviewSource Jam! Movies
Review From the outrageous comedian who once set The Tonight Show set on fire -- that would be Bobcat Goldthwait -- comes the sweetly funny and dark comedy, Sleeping Dogs Lie...Appealing newcomer Melinda Page Hamilton -- maybe you remember her as twisted Sister Mary Bernard, the lustful, sexy nun who engaged in a hilarious catfight with Gabrielle (Eva Longoria) in Desperate Housewives last season? -- masterfully and comically takes on the lead role...A large part of the movie's appeal is Page's ability to make both the entire story believable and her character entirely sympathetic, while Goldthwait muses on the price of absolute honesty with your mate...Goldthwait, in his third feature film as director (Shakes The Clown, Windy City Heat), should keep making movies if they're going to be this good.

ReviewSource Variety
Review A game and winning performance by Melinda Page Hamilton is the only saving grace of [Sleeping Dogs Lie], a rasty sex comedy from Bobcat Goldthwait about the perils of telling the whole truth. Dropping its bomb in the opening scene -- college girl Amy orally services (off-screen) her dog one lonely night -- pic far exceeds the limits of how far a one-joke comedy can be extended by spending the rest of the running time dealing with the fallout after she relents to her fiance's demand that she tell him the grossest thing she ever did...Pic is off-putting from the gamey opening scene not so much for the subject matter as for its amateurish video look, exacerbated throughout by ugly use of wide angle lenses and complete lack of visual savoir faire. Interiors are cramped, and an aggressively cutesy French-style accordion-score produces extra cringes.

Duane Byrge, The Hollywood Reporter Carnal, crazy and, most amazingly, heartwarming...
Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times unexpectedly thoughtful look at what it takes to make relationships work.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly Hamilton, in her movie debut, is a find: the kinkstress next door.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone Demonically funny and surprisingly sweet.
Robert Wilonsky, The Village Voice [Goldthwait] handles it beautifully...astoundingly sweet and sharply funny...
