        It's impossible not to like Diane Lane and John Cusack. But this romantic comedy is...so predictable and kind of disappointing. John Cusack's character is in his 40's, doesn't make any money, and still wears Ramones tee shirts. So, I'm kind of confused. I mean, isn't this the guy we divorcees need to steer clear of?

        Why did I watch this? 'Family Night' did me in, this night was not my Swedish movie night. However, Cusack (who really needs to play either Elvis Costello or Joe Strummer soon) is great but I wanted to take my 750ml bottle of champagne and strike it over my head. I have no problem with romantic movies but when they come off as something Woody Allen would've written in twelve-minutes then through it out the window realizing it's trash and might keep a few scenes then I am the one who wants to jump out the window - enter 'Must Love Dogs'.

        Average film, with a few funny scenes. It's been a long time since I've watched this film and I only vaguely remember it. Shows how good it is... The funniest scene was most probably when he tried getting a condom. The only part that really had me laughing. Other than that, nothing brilliant.

        This is a story about a divorced teacher who doesn't want to continue dating after finishing a relationship. Her family wants her to find a new boyfriend so they post an ad on a dating website for her. She gets many offers and when one of the offers sound to be good she decides to give it a try and she goes on a date with this guy. Very charming and sweet.
