I thought I was going to see a funny movie. I came home feeling suicidal.

If I wanted to see a pathetic over-40 woman who has bad dates and lives alone with the pets she dotes on too much -- I woulda stayed home and stared in the mirror!

I thought: "I love Molly Shannon! She's so funny. And Mike White -- he wrote 'School of Rock'. This should be HILARIOUS!"

Wrong. This was just pathos, pathos, pathos.

Single gal is sad and pathetic at the beginning. Sad and pathetic in the middle, and to my mind, sad and pathetic at the end.

Molly is lovely and acts well, but VERY few laughs in the movie.

And if you think "I love dogs" -- don't see this cuz the dogs don't come out so well.

(Also -- No cute guys.)

Why do so many great comedy actors (Robin Williams, Jim Carrey) decide to suddenly turn dramatic? We don't need any more dramatic actors. They're a dime a dozen. What's RARE is someone who can make us laugh. And God knows, we all need it. (Esp. after seeing a movie like this!)

So Molly, get together with your funniest writer friends and write a comedy worthy of your talents. I really don't need to see you having a nervous breakdown again.

(And what is it with movies with "Dog" in the title? They're all about women who can't get a date. This one, "The Truth about Cats and Dogs", "Must Love Dogs", "Dog Park".)
