The trailer for Hotel For Dogs is embellished with so many wonderful details that I’m overwhelmed by their combined might. The doggie vending machine doesn’t even register; the fact that dogs get to shit in the Sloth victim’s room from Seven does. The director has the same name as my genitals: Thor Freudenthal. With the appearance of Emma Roberts there’s proof that nepotism doesn’t truly rule Hollywood. The appearance of Don Cheadle proves that god does hate all of us, Don Cheadle most of all.
The trailer is running in HD at Apple, so you can freeze-frame the moist, delicious moment when a bag of dogshit falls onto a conveyor belt, more specifically approximating the sensation of plopping down to watch the film than any other trailer is likely to capture this summer.
