Divorced and dateless for two years, 37-year-old Sarah Hurlihy (Diane Lane - Unfaithful, The Perfect Storm) sets out to change her single status when she bravely answers an online Personals ad. Instead of Mr. Right, Sarah experiences the ultimate nightmare when her would-be date turns out to be her widower father (Christopher Plummer - The Insider)! Sarah's sister Carol (Elizabeth Perkins - The Ring Two) convinces Sarah to post her own ad and include the words "Must Love Dogs," although Sarah does not own a dog. The posting produces many responses, forcing Sarah to borrow her brother's dog, Mother Teresa. Now Sarah is juggling her job as a preschool teacher, her interfering family, and more men than she can handle. But can Sarah's family back off long enough to avoid scaring all of these men away in the charming romantic comedy Must Love Dogs?

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Despite good work from its likable leads, the romantic comedy Must Love Dogs is too predictable.
I wouldn't call the movie a dog, but I didn't love it either. Our search for the next Great Romant...

Cute but predictable -- teen girls may like it.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the movie includes repeated references to dating, body descriptions ("voluptuous"), and sex, including a couple of scenes in bed, and one in a shower (here the protagonist is naked, her back to the camera, alone and upset), as well as some party drinking. A woman ends up on a blind date with her father. There is some mild profanity. As its focus is Internet dating, the film also shows how it involves performing, deceiving, and self-deluding. A middle-aged woman "chats" with and attracts the attentions of a 15-year-old, whom she sends home immediately.
