Lost and found
Threat advisory: Under evaluation
A comedy about a guy who would do anything to get the girl of his dreams - and did!
Dylan Ramsey (David Spade) is an ordinary guy with a fine life. He's got a great Los Angeles apartment (even with the elderly neighbours' ongoing strip poker game) and a new restaurant about to open. Things are looking good.
"Good-looking" is one way to describe Dylan's new next-door neighbour, Lila Dubois (Sophie Marceau) but that would be like calling the Eiffel tower "a nice building". Both are tall, stunning, extremely French... and somewhat out of Dylan's reach. But he's determined to get Lila's attention.
Unfortunately for Dylan, Lila is focused on three things: re-starting her career as a professional cellist in her newly adopted city; staying away from her dashing and pushy ex-boyfriend, René (Patrick Bruel); and creating a safe home for the new love in her life, Jack. Jack's short, a little hairy, but in general, good-looking... for a Cairn terrier.
Despite Dylan's attempts to insert himself in Lila's life, he can't get anything more out of her than a neighborly "Thank you" - even after returning Jack following another of the pooch's attempts at running away. So Dylan does what any man desperately in love with the woman of his dreams would do - kidnaps Jack, volunteers to help his distraught owner with the search and plans to produce the lost doggie in time to reap the gratitude (and a date?) from Lila.
But then things start to misfire, thanks in part to the jealous René, a missing anniversary ring, Neil Diamond, pink dessert swans and surly loan officers.
