Critic Reviews for Must Love Dogs
An insult to the viewer's intelligence, which sticks to silly slapstick while failing to get around to making a mature statement about relationships.
If not for the talent and natural charisma of its star, Diane Lane, this would be an entirely worthless enterprise.
I wouldn't call the movie a dog, but I didn't love it either. Our search for the next Great Romantic Comedy, like so many Hollywood singletons' quest for love, continues.
What went wrong? The script is a bit dodgy and the actors seem to be going through the motions.
Audience Reviews for Must Love Dogs
Sweet story of true love :) I love John Cusack in this movie!!! :) So cute :) Just a great movie :) :) :) :)
Average film, with a few funny scenes. It's been a long time since I've watched this film and I only vaguely remember it. Shows how good it is... The funniest scene was most probably when he tried getting a condom. The only part that really had me laughing. Other than that, nothing brilliant.
Average romantic comedy. I originally rated this only two stars, but five years on from first viewing, I am a little older and can relate a bit more to Diane Lane's depressed late 30's divorcee.
Diane is obviously very attractive for her age, and I like John Cusack, but I have to say the main problem here is that they are not at all a convincing couple. She seems a little too conventional for him, and I never really bought them as an item at all.
Any "aah" moments I had were gooing over the beautiful big dog. Probably not a great thing in a romantic film. There are a few laughs here, such as her answering her own father's personal add, and Stockard Channing is fantastic as Dolly, but it's not enough to make this a must see,
Not bad for a weekend rental, but ultimately falls flat.
