If talking dogs rock your boat, there is a new DVD out today called "Cupid Dog" (Lionsgate).
It’s CUPID DOG to the rescue this Valentine’s Day!
Cupid Dog is supposed to be a light rom-com.
"Watch CUPID DOG, the
mischievous, matchmaking mutt work his magic in this heart-warming romantic
When Eric is told he will be sent to England for work, his canine
companion Gabe is unimpressed. Gabe does not want to face six months in
quarantine with big rottweilers and mastiffs waiting for an OK to the UK and
decides to fix the situation quickly. Gabe becomes CUPID DOG! His mission: to
set Eric up with his ideal date in the hope he will find love and change his
mind about moving to another country!"
And what I thought of it:
I have a tendency not to read any reviews of a product before I test/watch/use it, so that I won't be swayed by anyone's opinion. Reading the reviews afterwards is a different matter. After watching part of the film and googling for reviews, I came across someone's words "I watched this film, so that you don't have to". I must say, I couldn't even do that.
I have only managed to watch about 40 minutes of the film, and not a single minute more, I haven't seen how it ends and if honestly, don't care. I presume there is a happy end for the witless protagonist.
If I were asked to rate this film, I'd give it 2/5, and this will be pretty generous, and only thanks to the cute dog. The human actors do not deserve even half a point. Actually watching this film made me think that if they took some totally random people from the street and invited them to act, it could have been higher quality acting. I think our school plays were more convincing.
But as my husband has "kindly" pointed out recently: "They send DVDs to you not because you are a film buff, but because you are an average housewife with a blog". Erm, nice.
Some other bloggers were more generous and kind in their reviews, if you want to read some different opinions, please have a look at
