About the Movie
Love at first sniff for two bulldogs sparks an unlikely romance between an overworked businesswoman and a pro wrestler in this bark-out-loud comedy. Charmed into accepting a surprise marriage proposal – for her dog! – Ulrika Schmidt falls for Matthew “The Manimal” Pierce while planning their canines’ nuptials. This blissful escape is just what the young executive needs. But the honeymoon is cut short when her overbearing CEO/father steps in to break up the couples. Suddenly, a feel-good dog wedding becomes the battleground where she must choose whether to remain obedient to her father or carve her own path in life.
Super fun, sneaky smart romcom
Super fun, sneaky smart romcom about a mismatched couple – a blonde bombshell pickle company exec and a giant tattooed pro wrestler – who meet at the dog park, sparking an unexpected romance. Film moves quickly with bulldogs, dog wedding planning, wrestling matches, an awesome Beni-hana cosplay date, and funky bassa nova score. But best is how small details add up and you believe this odd couple throwing a dog wedding(!) makes total sense.
The performances are top notch, with the revelation being Matt Bloom (WWE’s Prince Albert), who was an absolutely natural sweetheart of a guy on and off screen (we met him at the NYC charity event for Long Island Bulldog Rescue). Rosalie Thomass is great as the engineer caught between The Manimal and her CEO Dad (ferociously funny Bernhard Schutz). Plus a real person named Queen Kong is wrestler’s mother! Add in the comedic culture clash of wrestlers, efficiency experts, Native American pickle factory managers, bodybuilders, and desert mystics…and you have a truly original good time movie.
Highly recommend this film to dog lovers, wrestling fans, and general cinephiles. It's a fun and quirky rom-com about a clash of cultures and two pet-owners who go to extremes to celebrate their love for animals and eventually find romance. Set in the mystical landscape of Arizona, the story takes you on a peyote trip and underscores a need to support the disenfranchised Native American population. There's even a skosh of Japanese culture represented in the musice score and cosplay. Did I mention a pickle factory? Very eccentric film. Especially loved how it reverses gender roles of the two protagonists without stereotyping. The title sequence with dozens of dog photos in fancy tuxedos and wedding gowns was very well done. Can't wait to see the sequel!
Adorable, fun and quirky
Saw this movie twice and liked it even better the 2nd time! This is not your typical rom com...very original, smart and sweet. Though the title may suggest it is for "dog people," this film will appeal to dog lovers and non dog lovers alike!
