Movie Info

Just how low will a guy sink in order to impress the woman of his dreams? How does stealing her dog sound? In Lost and Found, David Spade plays Dylan, who is about to open an new restaurant and has finally found the perfect apartment. The apartment just gets better when he meets his new neighbor, Lila (Sophie Marceau), a very beautiful women who has recently come to the United States from France. However, Lila has just gotten out of a bad relationship with René (Patrick Bruel), who doesn't want to leave her alone, so she has little interest in romance, preferring to devote herself to her cello and her dog Jack. One day, Jack runs away and Dylan finds him; when he returns the pooch to Lila, it's the first time she's been willing to speak in full sentences to him, though not for very long. Faster than you can say "That idea is so crazy it just might work!", Dylan decides to kidnap Jack; when Lila thinks the dog is lost, Dylan will generously volunteer to help look for him, which will give Dylan a chance to impress Lila when he's able to find Jack so quickly. Sure enough, Dylan swipes the dog, but from that point on the plan hardly goes the way he had hoped. Star David Spade also co-wrote the screenplay with J.B. Cook and Marc Meeks; the supporting cast includes Martin Sheen, Mitchell Whitfield, Artie Lang and Jon Lovitz.

News & Interviews for Lost and Found

Critic Reviews for Lost and Found

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (18)

A mundane sitcom with feature pretensions, the kind where the comic 'situation' is simply a coat-rack for hanging a rag-tag assortment of inflated sight gags and telegraphed punch lines.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

Spade serves as both star and co-writer of this lame, crass romantic comedy. Most of the jokes he's written fall flat, and his delivery isn't much better.

Minneapolis Star Tribune
Top Critic

Nothing but a cynical, astonishingly inept attempt to copy Mary's formula.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

The picture shamelessly steals gags from the vastly superior There's Something About Mary.

Maybe Adam Sandler isn't so bad after all.

It would be difficult to imagine material more wrong for Spade than Lost & Found.

Audience Reviews for Lost and Found

½

Just okay. Didn't love or hate it. Will say they are an unconvincing couple, though. David Spade is actually just playing his "finch" character (or may as well be). Works in the TV show, not so much in a rom com.

One of the last movies where we can see Spade playing a normal guy and actually believe it. This films is cute and quirky, but also has a nice combination of comedy that makes it very funny and entertaining to watch. As a big fan of Spade, I loved this movie. The overall story is the same as any romantic comedy, so I didn't rate it higher, but truthfully I don't care about that. If you love Spade as much as I do, you have to see this movie!

A few good gags and entertaining, don't change how the film is, cliche and silly.
