Oliver Cooper

four dogs laff

Oliver (Oliver Cooper) is your typical twenty-something with big dreams but little motivation to really pursue them. He lives with his Aunt Becca (Rebecca Goldstein) and spends his days hanging out with his former acting classmate Dan (Dan Bakkedahl). Oliver is a sweet kid but also a dreamer who seems much too content wiling away his days doing random chores around the house and spending time with his friend. Four Dogs gives audiences a natural look into Oliver’s world without placing him in an overly complicated narrative or one surrounded by metaphors. However, this simple conceit works as Cooper delivers a captivating performance making Oliver awkward, funny and honest all at once. Cooper may be an “out of work actor,” but the different characters he tries out while bored at home show a real sense of comedic brilliance, proving Oliver may have some true talent and be more than a kid with stars in his eyes.



A character in Project X touts the onscreen house party as the most epic one of all time. There’s no doubting that. Filmmaker Nima Nourizadeh and screenwriters Michael Bacall and Matt Drake have conceived the most monumental scenes of suburban destruction that you’ll see outside of a Michael Bay film. The debauchery in this Todd Phillips-produced project, which was kept weirdly secretive under production and cast with mostly unknowns, reaches staggering heights. So in that sense the movie, shot as a faux-documentary, achieves what appears to be its only goal.
