Cupid Dog DVD (Now CLOSED)

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 comedy.
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

Well done! I'm going to get in touch with you re address details.


  1. Citizen Kane.

    I've lost count of the number of times I have sat down to watch this film because it is supposed to be so good and told myself *this time* I will watch it to the end.

    I have never got past the first ten minutes.


  2. Texas Chainsaw Massacre?! I love that film (the original), I just find it hilarious.

  3. The best movie for me was the Shawshank Redemption x

  4. Worst film was Snakes on a Plane. Utter tripe. I do like the tripey Channel 5 Sunday afternoon family films though.

  5. Best movie was Sound of Music (but I am going to see Les Miserables this week so that may change!!)

  6. Best: Shawshank Redemption

    Worst: Dumb and Dumberer. I cannot believe I wasted my money to see that in the cinema. During the film, the audience was completely silent. Nothing in the movie solicted a laugh from anyone. Never have I seen a film so insultingly stupid. A perfect example of Hollywood's greed and lack of respect for the movie-going public.

  7. Best - The Shawshank Redemption, it's such a wonderful film.

    Worst - Son of the Mask, utter tripe!
