Restaurant owner Dylan Ramsey (David Spade) is head-over-heels in love with his new neighbor, a French cellist named Lila (Sophie Marceau). In a desperate attempt to garner her affections, he kidnaps her beloved pet dog and offers to help her find him on a phantom dog hunt. A wrench is thrown in his plans, however, when the dog swallows his best friend's diamond ring, and things get worse for Dylan as Lila's ex-fiancee, Rene, arrives to win her back.



The film received negative reviews, with Stephen Holden calling it "a rancid little nothing of a movie" in The New York Times,[1] and a "rotten" score of 18% on Rotten Tomatoes as of August 2012. The site's consensus states: "Aside from a few laughs, everything else is entirely predictable, including the jokes."[2]

The film only grossed $6,552,255 in the US with a budget in excess of 30 million dollars.[3]
