The best place to meet a guy is at the supermarket. You don't need to waste a lot of time there, either. You see a guy holding a list, you know he's married.

Terrific fun film with terrific performances by Cusack and Lane
I have rarely seen a romantic comedy as entertaining and fun as Must Love Dogs is. The premise may sound familiar but the way it is executed is very fresh and new. The director obviously knows what he is doing with regard to the comedy and entertainment of the film. Diane Lane is terrific in this film and proves once again that she has good comic timing as well as her ability in tougher more serious fare. John Cusack and the other actors also put in top-notch performances that are both realistic and very amusing. There are several laugh out loud moments and some future classic scenes. All in all Must Love Dogs is a winner and it's fun and entertaining formula is first rate. A 10!
