Very very predictable, including the post credit scene !!!
Sorry, this movie sucks
Must See Movie...
The plot isn't so bad, but the pace of storytelling is too slow which makes people bored. Certain moments are so obvious and unnecessary for the main plot. I would've fast-forwarded those moments if it was an online streaming. The ending looks like implying a sequel, not sure if this movie will get one
I happened to stumble upon this on Netflix and gave it a try since I love the cast...and animals ;) So cute and refreshing, no baggage, just light fun with amazing performances from Steve and Justin (Shameless guys). Kate sings a little, always a treat. Sean is typical Sean (RIP Bob), and then animal aspect/portrayal is not perfect but sweet. All over good streaming flick.
Greetings again from the darkness. Quirky is an overused word to describe far too many offbeat independent movies and unconventional actors. However, sometimes no better word exists, and that's exactly the situation with writer/director Finn Taylor's latest. A full moon cosmic event results in a collision between astronomy and astrology, and just like that
Emma's faithful pet dog and cat are transformed into hunky human boyfriend material.Adding to the high level of quirk (in the role of Emma) is the extraordinarily multi-talented Kate Micucci ("Garfunkel and Oates") – an actress, comedian, writer, musician and artist. Plus, she is just so darn likable and nice! In fact, "nice" may be the only challenger to quirky in how best to describe this film. Sure it's cute and sweet and delightful, but above all, it's a nice movie whose nice characters will leave you with a nice feeling.Steve Howey and Justin Chatwin (both from "Shameless") are spot on in their portrayals of Sam and Diego - the humanized dog and cat, respectively. Howey and his bleach blonde hair and boundless energy capture the devoted pooch, while Chatwin is downright hilarious with his feline tendencies that attract a public following. Given much leeway with the roles, we never lose sight of their original connection to love-lost Emma.While the premise may offend some (though nothing else in the film will), the humor stems from this being a woman's fantasy. Her beloved pets, with full knowledge of her likes and dislikes, and with blind commitment, take on beautiful male human form without losing the lovable pet traits. What more could a women-done-wrong desire? It's also quite a scathing commentary on modern day dating, with the ne'er-do-well Luke (Josh Brener, "Silicon Valley") contrasted to the too-nice Carl (Sean Astin). Hana Mae Lee (Pitch Perfect) is Emma's spunky best bud and co-worker, and Illeana Douglas plays their boss.There are some terrific Bay Area film locations utilized, and the music is so perfectly matched that we find ourselves saying "of course" as each new song pops up. Filmmaker Taylor certainly could have gone a bit harsher with the commentary and humor, but let's enjoy this quirk for what it is
a really nice time.
Best movie I have seen in years . Laughed out loud belly rolls ! Saw this at the Napa Valley Film Festival and can hardly wait to share it with my friends and family. Great cast , beautiful shots of San Francisco. A true classic for all animal lovers as well . And a definite mood changer . If you need a lift see this movie . Bravo Bravo Bravo The cast is so talented and with people you will recognize. The shots in the city are like what Woody Alllen does for NewYork. I think this should be shared with you nearest and dearest. I dreamed about the movie for 3 days after I saw it and woke up chuckling . And still find myself going back and telling my clients about the scenes . Who also laughed out loud and it made there day brighter while being thought provoking.
Saw this film at the Napa Valley Film Festival. It was adorable - funny, charming, quirky - I loved it and so did the audience. Great performances by both the human and animal cast. Emma, an app developer, has been unlucky in love. She adopts a dog and cat and moves to a new city to start over. The pets love Emma but an open door allows the animals to get out. Something unusual happens and the dog and cat must find their way back to Emma and Emma must find herself. Justin Chatwin is perfect as "Diego." Kate Micucci is wonderful as Emma. Sean Astin plays Emma's new friend Carl. The film has so much warmth and is a real feel-good comedy.
