Finally, a way to hold an orange without it looking like you’re the one holding the orange.
If you were mesmerized by the insanity exhibited in A Talking Cat!?!, or are simply a fan of Kristine DeBell and self-aggrandizing pets then I urge you to find a copy of An Easter Bunny Puppy.
Essentially it’s more of the same. And I mean that in the literal sense: same locations, same music, same cast… But there’s a marked increase in the number of hypnotically repetitive montages that I fully believe are there solely to justify Russ the dog’s statement at the beginning of the film that the movie will last 90 minutes.
Based around a central plotline of DeBell’s author character being tasked to write a children’s book based around the title of An Easter Bunny Puppy, fifty percent of conversations consist of a character lying awkwardly, stammering over their words, while the person they’re talking to smiles unquestioningly like an imbecile. The other half of the movie is taken up by the aforementioned montages, establishing scenery shots (often of locations never visited by the characters), a fat dog sitting, and meta conversations about what An Easter Bunny Puppy should be about. They unsatisfyingly conclude that, “An Easter Bunny Puppy is whatever you want it to be.”
There’s also some hidden treasure, a romance and a woman with fairly severe laryngitis.
I’m not sure where the appeal lies in these exceptionally lazy films, but I’m definitely not alone: the director of Toy Story 3 recently outed himself as a fan by tweeting the nonsensical final line of the movie.
I’m the Easter Bunny Puppy, punk. Deal with it. Hippity-Hoppity Woof. Peace out. twitter.com/leeunkrich/sta…— Lee Unkrich (@leeunkrich)
The wait for A Talking Pony!?! (which the trailer admits is actually a horse) is unbearable so I’ve just ordered A Christmas Puppy from the same director. Reviews on Amazon seem to indicate that a lot of people were infuriated because there’s no actual puppy in the movie.

These are all the same film.
The dogs (all different) are taken from a stock photo website. None of them are the dog in the actual film.
The house is also a stock photo.
The director, David DeCoteau, is better known for his soft-core gay porn horror films.
Some of the shots in this film are duplicated in David DeCoteau’s later masterpiece, A Talking Cat!?! which also stars Kristine DeBell and Eric Roberts.
This film is not as good as A Talking Cat!?!
Difficult as they are to find on the internet, it’s still worth checking out early episodes of Ricky and Steve’s Xfm show from the late nineties through to 2001 (what’s referred as series 0 and 1). Consistently fun and anarchic it’s basically two friends mucking about, with a notable and pleasant lack of Gervais constantly shrieking at Karl Pilkington.
I have zero recollection of receiving the above poster. I think watching their post-Extras work must’ve lobotomised that part of my brain.
It’s a Pokémon dressed as a bird.
I like the reactions I get from artists who I approach with my stupid commission requests, and Tanya Roberts was fantastic. I don’t think she understood the point of the Gullery (not that there is one, really), but she was kind enough to play along.
Because his art evokes a 40s kind of feeling I asked Des Taylor for a drawing of Superman with a seagull, based on Fred Ray’s iconic cover for Superman #14. He was confused, but I’m very pleased with the result.
And what have you done with your day?
Who’s the best in the world, Louis CK or Daniel Kitson?
For me, Daniel Kitson is the best in the world. Louis CK is incredible also though. Or perhaps it’s just CM Punk.
