When Eric and Marsha break off their long-term relationship, journalist Eric is able to weather it pretty well. He still has his long time canine companion Gabe, and his boss, Ms Andrews, wants to send him to London to open an office. But first Ms Andrews says Eric must find out the true identity of the best-selling author R L Dutton. A bigger obstacle for Eric's trip, however, comes from his dog. Gabe does not want to face six months in quarantine with big pit bulls and mastiffs waiting for an OK to the UK. Getting ideas from a pretty TV host, Gabe acts as Cupid Dog, doing his best to bring Eric and their neighbor Sara together. Gabe's plan works, only to go up in smoke when Eric realizes Sara is the mysterious author. Now Sara thinks Eric was just using her for a story before leaving for London. Gabe the Cupid Dog must go to new lengths to get Sara and Eric to tie the "leash." Written by
Hurray for Gabe! Very enjoyable romantic comedy with a talking dog!
Eric (Brian Krause) is a reporter for a magazine called Left Coast Living. Having been told that there is a branch opening in London, Eric longs to be transferred, as his longtime girlfriend has called it quits. True, his friend who lives on a houseboat has been trying to set him up with some nice gals, but this string of ladies are not attractive or interesting to Eric. Then, his dog Gabe, a little canine who can talk, unknown to Eric, learns that IF his owner is transferred to London, he will likely be in quarantine for six weeks or more. Hoping to avoid this, Gabe makes plans to matchmake on his own. As it happens, there is a lovely lady, Sarah (Boti Bliss) who lives next door. She is a divorcée with two pre-teen kids and very pretty. With advice that the dog gets from watching Ashley's Cupid Arrow television show, Gabe starts leaving presents for Sarah. First, its flowers, then an old love poem Eric wrote ages ago and, finally, jewelry. Therefore, Sarah, entranced, invites Eric on a date and the two are soon pretty smitten. There is also other matters. Eric can't travel to London until he finds a "hot" author, R.L. Dobbs, and writes an article on him while, unknown to the publishing world, Sarah is actually Dobbs! What will happen once the secrets start tumbling? This nice romcom borrows an idea from many movies like Look Who's Talking Now and Marmaduke. Gabe, the darling dog, is both narrator and star as he tries to make his human, Eric, happy. Krause and Bliss are great as the falling-in-love duo while all of the supporting cast members, including Ralph Waite, are terrific, too. The film looks wonderful, with nice costumes and sets while the tale is imaginative and full of life. For all romcom fans in constant pursuit of new, satisfying love stories, Gabe is a lucky find indeed.
