Must Love Dogs a cheesy tale

Yeah, it's cheesy. I love a good chick flick as much as the next gal, but sometimes they're just a little too cheesy. For a really good story about Internet love, see "You've Got Mail," not "Must Love Dogs."

The only really bright spot in the movie is the adorable John Cusack, who really makes the film worthwhile. His character is endearing and wonderful, just the kind of man you hope to meet one day.

So the story goes: divorced girl's sister puts her profile up on, divorced guy reads it, divorced girl and guy meet and don't really like each other, they meet again and do like each other, divorced girl has other guys interested in her, divorced guy finds out, saddness, then they get together in the end.

A modern love story, right?

It's cute, but often overly. It's funny, which is very enjoyable. So I guess overall, it's worth a matinee or a rental. Or guys might score some points by taking a girl to it if she likes cheesy chick flicks.
