Dogs: The Rise and Fall of an All Girl Bookie Joint is an independent 1996 comedy about four young women in Manhattan who turn to crime to pay the rent. Leila Wascowicz (Pam Columbus) shares a tiny Manhattan apartment with three other twenty-something roommates: Stephanie (Pamela Gray), Amina (Melody Beal) and Gypsy (Eve Annenberg). None of the women can seem to hold onto a decent job or a decent man, but their situation takes a turn for the worse when Leila's mother (Lenore Sommerstein) suddenly dies. Without money for the funeral or even funds for the rent, the girls are at a loss on how to survive. Then, their friend Sammy Cybernowski (Toby Huss) suggests they make a little money answering calls for a bookie friend of his. The women soon realize that they can run their own gambling operation right in their own kitchen. At first, the scheme is a success, but the women soon find themselves haunted by the idea of what their mothers would think and the reality of a life of crime.moreless
