There were many future-classic one-liners loosely strung together with flat dialog more appropriate to the legend of a map.
I doubt this was the result that Lane and Cusack expected from the promising elements at the outset of this project, but no one can fault their admirable attempts to deliver a heart-warming film.
The irregular cadence of the dialog almost leads the audience to listen for a canned laugh track, ironic given one of the character's penchant for poetry.Additionally, Goldberg should return his directing credentials for allowing the flat and unflattering interior lighting especially inflicted on Lane.( Plain, slightly boring, inoffensive) John Cusack and Diane Lane play angst ridden characters, slightly caricatured ( no one I know is quite as oddball as Jake- is Cusack being typecast? The movie IS somewhat clichéd but the dogs are very cute as are the kids ( if slightly precocious at times).The sisters are more realistric - mine could be just as mean under the guise of honesty and just as meddling.I like to hang out by fruits and vegetables, there's a better chance of getting a guy who's healthy.
