Must Love Dogs
Source: Catholic News Service
Amiable but uneven comedy about a recently divorced teacher (Diane Lane) whose well-meaning family runs a personal ad on her behalf that brings her into contact with a lonely boat-builder (John Cusack) in similar straits, but the possibilities of romance are complicated by the woman's attraction to the handsome father (Dermot Mulroney) of one of her preschoolers. Writer-director Gary David Goldberg's script meanders, the plot turns are sometimes implausible, but the central characters are decent and played by likeable leads, with good support by Christopher Plummer, Elizabeth Perkins and Stockard Channing. Freewheeling attitude toward premarital sex, condom use, an instance of profanity, scattered crude language, sexual banter, and a scantily clad go-go dancer. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
