There are some silly looking movies heading to theaters this weekend – though some definitely look like they are leaning more into that tonal aesthetic than others. Either way, we have dogs, sharks, and ghouls all making appearances, so there should be some laughs and some screams. Get ready for Dog Days, The Meg and Slender Man.
Just remember, I’m not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they’ll end up on the Tomatometer. Let’s take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.
In the making of the movie Dog Days, it looks like someone walked into the pitch room and said one word: “Dogs.” The response to this pitch was, “Okay, what else?” and then the response back was surely, “Dogs.” This probably went on for a while, and then the film just got made. Set in Los Angeles, it weaves five different stories together, each one of them showcasing how our four legged friends can make our lives brighter and better.
There’s a strong ensemble cast for sure, but there doesn’t seem to be much else working for it. I love Ken Marino as a comedic actor/personality, but the directing chops (or project selection, at least) looks like it leaves something to be desired. He helmed How to Be a Latin Lover (38%), and I can’t imagine this one finishes any higher on the Tomatometer.
