The Truth About Cats and Dogs (1996)

truth about cats and dogs

By Scott Goldfine

A talk-radio veterinarian (Janeane Garofalo) lets her beautiful friend (Uma Thurman) impersonate her when an admirer shows up in the fresh comedy “The Truth About Cats and Dogs.” The ploy turns into a sticky web of deceit as the vet’s low self-esteem robs her of the courage to reveal herself.

The leads, especially Garofalo in a star-making role, are terrific in this year’s brightest romp. Also stars Jamie Foxx. Rated PG-13.
