A contemporary comedy that moves at the speed of lightning, The Little Dog Laughed takes us inside the Hollywood closet as Mitchell Green, an up-and-coming movie star is about to get a break that will catapult him into the stratosphere. His ruthless agent, Diane, would feel a lot better about her client were it not for his persistent case of homosexuality and the fact that he seems to have fallen for Alex, a hunky hustler (who, himself, has a girlfriend!). Pulling out all of the stops, the devilish Diane does everything in her power to keep Mitchell away from Alex and firmly in the closet. Will love prevail before the final credits roll?
