Movie Answer Man (10/01/2001)

Q. The Answer Man comments about sanitized Spanish translations prompts me to ask whether the title of "Amores Perros" has been sanitized for English consumption. I can't help wondering if the title could be translated more directly, as something like "Like a Mad Dog in Heat", or even "Doggie Style." (Timothy Buchman, New York NY)

A. You're close. The title translates as "Love's a Bitch."
