Down Dog, film review: Engaging tale of a rake’s redemption feels like a glorified sitcom

Scripted by Simon Nye, of Men Behaving Badly fame, this is an engaging but predictable tale of a rake’s redemption that might have worked better on TV than as a feature film.

Jason Durr plays Frank, a conceited, womanising, hard-drinking man about town who works for a sex-toy company. He is so busy pursuing wealth and sex, and going on benders with his obnoxious boss (Nick Moran), that he ignores his teenage son.

Only when confronted with his mortality does his personality change. Durr brings swagger and humour to his role, and Nye’s script provides plenty of witty one-liners, but this still feels like a glorified sitcom.
