A goofy, euphoric amorous adventure in matchmaking cyberspace.

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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

What went wrong? The script is a bit dodgy and the actors seem to be going through the motions.

...the film is ultimately difficult to resist, though it's clear that those who generally dislike this sort of thing will really hate this.

Must Love Dogs could have used a longer leash and a lot more frolicking in the park.

Like a good song that makes you think it sounds familiar, when it is actually brand new, this girl meets boy story is simply crammed with appealing elements
Matthew Turner

Diane Lane makes an extremely appealing lead and there's good chemistry between her and Cusack, perhaps because of their shared history at the edges of the Brat Pack in the 1980s.

Cusack in particular seems to have embellished his role with an assortment of verbal quirks that suggest he wasn't too happy with what was on the page.

If only the whole script had been as sharp as some of Cusack's caustic one-liners, then this might have appealed to more than just the Chardonnay brigade.

This lazily conceived movie wouldn't be much without the strength of its cast, which saves it the string of cliches that might have buried it.

Let me tell you: Having my feet scraped with a scapel and rubbed down with acid by my podiatrist was more enjoyable than sitting through this miserable film.

Manages to be engaging, even though the plot is badly underdeveloped.

An inconsequential, harmless piece of moderately cute fluff

Uma produção sem entusiasmo ou vida, o que é fatal para seus propósitos.

The big, dumb movie of the summer for those who can remember Richard Nixon in the White House.
| Original Score: C-
August 18, 2005
Nowhere near as good as its stars due to stagy dialogue, but still a sweet experience.

Attractive, witty, and exceedingly cute movie seeks undiscerning viewers for good times and more!

While you must love dogs, it's ok if you just really like the movie. What I love is the match John Cusack and Diane Lane make on camera.
