Ally Sheedy and Bestiality Porn Subtext. Really, who could ask for much more? It's Man's Best Friend, the Millennium prequel that never made it to our screens... until now. The secret past of Frank Black, amateur Dr. Moreau, is revealed in stark detail. Ally Sheedy takes in a genetically-manipulated stray who soon supplants her weaselly signficant other as the alpha male of the household. Meanwhile, Henriksen eats up scenery and pitches Clairol hair care products with Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a brilliant Seinfeld/Aliens crossover. Children are frightened, mailmen are consumed with relish, evil boyfriends are pissed on, and the police are baffled. It all ends eventually, although I'd be hard pressed to explain how. Rest assured, though, this movie does have a moral compass, informed by animal rights psychos: the evil animal-haters are punished. Along with some of the animal-lovers too. And, of course, so is the audience.
