Editorial Reviews

When Charlie (Brendan Hines) meets Daphne (Malin Akerman), the girl of his dreams, he never expects he’ll have to battle past her pet dog "Babydoll" to win her heart. Just when it seems he can’t beat the beast, and all is lost, something unexpected happens. Charlie begins to fall in love with the dog himself, realizing he never really needed a girlfriend in the first place. Now, in order to keep hanging out with "man’s best friend," Charlie must scramble to keep his relationship with Daphne going at all costs, or risk losing them both.

4.0 out of 5 stars Girl+Dog+Boy=Love July 11, 2008
A new kind of love triangle hits the singles market?
Buying a chew toy to get in good with the girl's dog?
Man has had dog's in the teepee for 25000 years,
but it may be the women who tamed them first?
There has to be some philosophy for this, because
it begs logic.
The nice guy is blue and goes to a party at which he meets a girl
who is lonely like him. Luck has it and they hit it off.
But she gets a dog and a tail spin sets in:
he doesn't really dig dogs.
Even worse he finds out he really does like this dog....
Some coffee twists later there is a happy ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars The dog is great! November 18, 2008
Charlie is looking for a relationship in this movie and meets a young woman named, Daphne. He decides that he'd like to pursue her and things are going pretty good until she brings a cute dog home named, Babydoll.
Now, the problem is, Charlie is not a dog lover and both he and the dog know it. Just how is Charlie going to pull off acting like one for his new lady.
As the story moves along, the adorable dog weaves her way into the very heart of Charlie and he begins to enjoy being with the dog more than the lady. Now he is in big troule because without one, he cannot have the other.
This movie was somewhat entertaining but not one that I personally would sit through again. I liked Charlie but my favorite was Babydoll who I am sure could woo anyone to her side with the blink of her adorable eyes.
But to me the story lags a bit and the main highlights were the antics between the man and dog. So, if you like a movie where the dog wins the heart of man, this one is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars good romantic comedy March 24, 2011
I was all ready to sit here and claim that Heavy Petting is just another predictably written romantic film but then... they go and throw a funny and highly intelligent dog into the mix, and it works! It won me over!

Alright, so it didn't win me over initially- it took time for the storyline to develop because quite frankly, the first 30 minutes of film are pretty darn awful and cliched focusing entirely around two single men doing really idiotic and unfunny things at a nightclub in an attempt to impress the ladies. It was terrible. I was honestly preparing myself for the worst but then, to my surprise, the movie *does* slowly improve once the dog enters the picture.

A couple scenes that were really hysterical to me were the following-

- When the man enters a pet store and asks for the biggest toy available. Well the cashier man gives him the surprise of his life!

- When the man takes his dog to a clothing store and the dog walks around like a fashion model, lol. I don't even know how they trained the dog to go along with this. This happens later in the film.

- When the man and his girlfriend were trying to make out in bed, but every time the man would look over towards the chair he'd see the dog watching him, and would then become distracted.

- When the man was trying to sleep and the dog would sneak up towards his face and let out a shocking bark, lol. Then the man turns around and does the same thing to the dog!!!

- When the dog was digging in the mans pants at the exact moment the man was attempting to make his first move on the girl, lol.

Overall, Heavy Petting is proof that a dog CAN make a difference in the quality. What was originally going to be a 2-star movie is now 4 solid stars. Amazing.
