Dead Dog (2000)
For everyone who ever cried--or laughed--at "Old Yeller," this darkly funny character study stars Jeremy Sisto as a Georgia-born New York City ad exec whose beloved golden retriever is killed by a hit-and-run driver after Paige Turco, Sisto's live-in girlfriend, lets the dog get away from her during a walk. A distraught Sisto's growing obsession with tracking down the driver and getting his revenge threatens his relationship with Turco, his job, and more. David Thornton, Julianne Nicholson, Isaac Hayes also star. Soundtrack: English.
