In many ways, Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead is exactly what it promises to be, a juvenile parody of Charles Schulz's beloved Peanuts comic strip and characters. Imagine You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown as rewritten by Kevin Smith. It's undeniably hilarious, even as it goes to places no teenager should have to experience. I'm pretty sure it includes every swear word in the English language; surprisingly, however, it's also more insightful than Linus Van Pelt on his best afternoons by that familiar brick wall. Don Welch deserves credit for directing a game cast with sympathy and welcome subtlety. Hannah Tripp is especially terrific - downright SNL-worthy, in fact - as Marcy.
