It's tough to get around GABE THE CUPID DOG's far-fetched plot: A dog makes a series of absurd attempts to orchestrate romance between two single neighbors. Never mind the subplot to uncover the true identity of a mysterious author.

Younger kids who like talking dogs likely will find this movie a bit dull, and, for older kids, the adult romance plot and dog stealing bikini tops are still a bit ahead of their interests. For parents watching solo, there's simply better romcom material out there.
