never get tired of shaggy dog movies
Someday the Hallmark Channel will broadcast a movie that's not in the least bit family-inclusive, and that'll be a sign that the end times are nigh. But no worries for now. Hallmark still keeps it family-oriented. There's comfort in knowing that the network's there for when I'm jonesing for something clean and wholesome and for when my nana comes visiting. PUPPY LOVE, which aired in 2012, is a fine example of Hallmark cinema. It doesn't chop you at the knees with an influx of coarse or seedy elements. It doesn't have foul language or violence for violence's sake. PUPPY LOVE is predictable, yeah, but amiable and fun in an uncomplicated way.

Maybe some plot spoilers.

Megan Nolan (Candace Cameron Bure) is a single mother and also a professor who's landed a job at the Roanfield University. But her ten-year-old daughter Caitlin (Katie L. Hawkins) is desolate over their having to relocate to Roanfield.

Minor league baseball player Ben Fuller (Victor Webster) lives in Roanfield. When not playing on the road, Ben hangs out with his rambunctious dog Jake. The plot proper kicks off when Jake negotiates his way thru a door and out the house. He ends up impounded at the animal shelter just as Megan decides to get Caitlin a pet to hopefully spring her from her sad mopes. Now, can the baseball player and the professor (and her daughter) share custody of Jake without driving each other bananas?

No surprise, much of the humor comes from the messes that Jake, that undisciplined dog, gets into. See, Ben is an easy-going sort who treats his dog more like a person than a pet. Meanwhile, Megan's real big on making sure that Jake receives proper behavioral training. And, now, look, she's got this thing called an obedience clicker. So it's the expected personality clash between our two grown-up leads. How can romance possibly come out of this? But it will if only the writers stick to the Hallmark playbook. Candace Cameron Bure is likable as the "grown-up" of the lot. The love story's okay. But Victor Webster's interactions with the kid actress, Katie L. Hawkins, are what makes the movie work for me. The dog is shaggy and adorable. Expect mayhem with shoes and sudsy doggy bathtub dips and the hazards of leaving meat unattended on the chopping table. A fun and light movie! 3.5 out of 5 stars.
