Diane Lane plays a believable 40 yr old pre-school teacher, Sarah Nolan, who recently got divorced. She is receiving all kinds of help and suggestions for finding a date from her two sisters, three brothers, widower dad, and even an elderly Aunt. Sarah resists all of their efforts until Sarah's sister completes an Internet Dating service questionairre on her behalf. She describes Sarah as "voluptuous" and also adds the sentence "must love dogs". The only photo she has of Sarah is her graduation pic which she places on the site. In the meantime, Sarah is also introduced to the dad of one of her students who is handsome, Italian-looking, and with whom Sarah exchanges compliments. There is obvious chemistry between them but Sarah made a vow which she intends to keep to never to date one of her student's dads. Yet, she develops a crush on him. The real comedy starts when Sarah answers one of the 18 voice messages she receives on the computer dating service. She agrees to meet with Jake, played by John Cusack. They meet at a park for walking dogs, each of them had "borrowed" a dog for the occasion. The lines they exchange as they check each other out are hilarious ... Their first date to an ethnic Armenian restaurant is fabulous and so realistic. The conversation between them is great and memorable. Other amusing moments in the film are when Jake and his lawyer friend are watching "Doctor Zhivago" at home, discussing its merits related to modern dating. Just the fact of two guys viewing Doctor Zhivago ... when neither of them has a date is amusing and their rating it as the ideal romantic film is highly ironic.

This film is laughing out loud funny as it mimics real world ironies on many levels for adult dating, whether divorced, single, or widowers, the film works for them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must love.....LOVE! January 21, 2006
By Larry C
I happened to glance at a few reviews posted here and I must say I'm shocked that they are so ascerbic. What did you expect from a romantic comedy Dr. Zhivago! (If you see the movie you will apreciate my comment). I'll make it simple for you if you now find yourself at this review and are trying to decide if you should buy or rent this movie. Well I suggest you buy it because as they say once in not enough. Diane Lane will positively blow you away with her charm, grace, style, warmth, and ability to deliver quick staccato peppery dialogue. She is wonderfully appealing and is easily one of the best actresses out there today. Yes cudos go to those around her but it's the divine Miss Lane who runs away with this one. She has that ability to reach out through the screen and pull you into her life. Calling it acting would be an injustice to her craft. She makes her character a living, breathing, touching life that makes you want to hug her and hold her close and say......I'm sorry that husband of yours ever caused you to cry. You deserve deserve deserve even deserve a Golden Globe! Run.....don't walk.....and get it today. It's a keeper!

3.0 out of 5 stars Diane Lane is Charming January 13, 2007
I agree 300% with spotlight reviewer, Michael Acuna. And I will add that this is neither the best nor the worst film you have ever seen. A classic, though slow, chick flick, MUST LOVE DOGS is comforting to watch for one reason: the indescribable charm of Diane Lane.

Another version of the 'You Have Mail' Internet-dating movie, MUST LOVE DOGS is predictable in terms of plot. But that hardly matters. The point in watching this film is to indulge in a sweet cast of familiar faces including John Cusack, Elizabeth Perkins, Swoosie Kurtz and of course, Diane Lane.

A divorced 40-something with all the confidence, wisdom and wrinkles that come with age, Lane is Sarah, a pre-school teacher, reluctantly tossed back into the dating pool by her sister, played by Perkins.

Though she is far more beautiful than your average 40-something, here Lane succeeds in conveying the every-woman qualities that will appeal to ladies of all ages. Vulnerable, strong, gorgeous, nervous, hopeful and suspicious, Lane's Sarah is the kind of woman every girl can relate to and every real man would love.

3.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly good but still simple stuff, of course August 17, 2005
You just can't help loving "Must Love Dogs," at least if you like anything in the situation-romance genre. It's well-acted, well-photographed, and has a really excellent, witty, screenplay.

You've seen the story before, alas, and that's why I took 2 stars off the top. Diane Lane and John Cusack do credible performances as recent divorcees whose meddling families and friends are always trying to set them up. After the usual fumbling and bumbling and misconstrued circumstances, of course they hook up. On the way, they have some interesting dates (that clever screenplay including Lane answering an ad from her own father and Dr. Zhivago-adoring Cusack going out with a cinema-hating bubblehead).

Ah, the dogs. Lane ends up with her brother's adorable Newfie Dog, a loving gentle giant named "Mother Theresa." Both ladies have some fear issues to deal with.

The best part of the film is the supporting cast. Christopher Plummer is pure genius as Lane's widower Irish father with more dates than her. And Stockard Channing is one of those dates, a preternaturally wise trailer-trash-type who is almost dead of too much Santa Fe style.

Yes, a nice romantic little film and better than most in a somewhat tired-out genre.
