DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Lost & Found is a romantic comedy with much more emphasis on the comedy than on the romance. Fans of star David Spade will enjoy his sarcastic brand of humor, which is the focus of the film; younger viewers will laugh at the broad visual gags and crude bodily function humor. Most older viewers will probably find the plot incredibly thin, the romantic pairing extremely unlikely, and the brand of humor too coarse.

Critic's Review Heading
Average
David Spade has proven himself extremely funny as a certain kind of character in a certain context, and he's extremely funny again in Lost & Found when he decides to be that character in those contexts. Then he starts trying to stretch in a dozen different directions at once, and the whole thing collapses into a tries-too-hard comedy without a distinct identity. Combining elements from There's Something About Mary, Spade's teamings with Chris Farley and conventional romantic comedy elements, Lost & Found ignores the caustic wit that makes Spade most entertaining. Though it has a few winning gags, Lost & Found is hit & miss.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Dylan Ramsey (DAVID SPADE) is an ordinary guy with a fine life. He's got a great Los Angeles apartment (even with the elderly neighbors' 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 neighbor, 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.
