The truth about dogs, anywayBy BobbyShaftoe (26 reviews) from Cheshire , 09 Mar 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]I have a real issue with one of the basic tenets of this film, that is at best lazy and at worst insulting. Namely, that the film makes the basic assumption that us men, poor distracted creatures that we are, cannot help but turn into warm, jibbering puddles on the floor at the sight of a tall, blonde lady.
Maybe it's just me, but purely in terms of looks, speaking as an experienced letch, I'd take Garofolo over Thurman every time. And this is not just me being a contray, PC thug and saying I'd take the hairy dyke over the blonde. I read the Sun, I like lager and football, and I have an ill-informed and violent prejudice against immigrants and gays. To me, Ms Thurman looks like a praying mantis in a wig, and honks like a moomin. Garofolo, hairy dyke or no, is a very good looking woman. It's true that I do like short women, because height is literally the only thing I have to make me feel superior to them, but it can't just be that.
Perhaps I'm a one in a million, but I don't think so. I also appreciate that I am probably the only person in the world to get on his high horse about a film having the temerity to assume that I will be attracted to a leading actress.

Great relaxing funBy Danielle Wetherell from London , 07 Feb 2008Great relaxing fun - not too cheezy, not too smoozy. Fun, simple flick that is an easy watch after a full on week at work!!!
Dont botherBy a customer from South Wales , 07 Nov 2007I turned it off after about half an hour. None of the actors seemed genuine. It was false and stilted and I was bored bored bored.

Funny FilmBy a customer from Wales , 26 Jan 2007I enjoyed this film, Romantic and funny.
A better than average romcomBy a customer from Scotland , 16 Jan 2007This is a better than average rom com which both me and my husband enjoyed.. along with our dog and cat!
We both laughed aloud and the characters and story line are good- if a but predicatble!
