A 2006 independent film screened at Sundance, ''Sleeping Dogs Lie'' is Creator/BobcatGoldthwait's first film since 1992's ShakesTheClown.
A woman gets engaged to her longtime boyfriend, but wonders if it's worth being truly honest, when stuck whether or not to tell him that in college she [[spoiler: performed oral sex on her dog once]] despite being an otherwise ordinary and accomplished person.
Definitely not to be confused with VideoGame/SleepingDogs. Or the [[Film/SleepingDogs other one]].
