This movie is a must for dog lovers especially if you love a good comedy. A few curse words that I didn't care for but there's plenty of dogs in this movie and a relationship that's trying to blossom in spite of the girls dog.

Movie Reviews

"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."
Good Dog...Bad Script

"I L-O-V-E dogs and couldn't get into this movie.

Boy meets girl who likes dogs, but hers has just died. Girl gets a new dog that doesn't like boy, but boy keeps trying and learns to love dog then really starts to enjoy dog. Girl feels neglected so dumps boy. Boy feels bad and tries to get back together with girl.

Despite best efforts, this film is lacking charisma. There is some potential for comedy here, but scenes are cut before jokes are allowed to play out. In Heavy Petting's defense, I've seen similar sorts of movies with Jennifer Aniston that I thought were just as dumb, but they did really well at the office because of the names involved. Some viewers might like this film if they like light romantic comedies and aren't expecting very little.

p.s. Good on the movie makers for having the girl rescue a dog from the pound and getting a mutt so as not to incense a 101 Dalmation-like boom for dog breeders and puppy mills."
The dog is great!

"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."
