The Truth About Cats and Dogs

Year: 1996
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Director: Michael Lehnmann
Writer: Audrey Wells
Cast: Janeane Garofalo, Uma Thurman, Ben Chaplin, Jamie Foxx, David Cross

Without the presence of Janeane Garofalo, this would have been as drab as any romantic comedy that would usually star Jennifer Lopez or Matthew McConaghuey.

She plays Abby, a celebrity veterinarian on the radio. When a handsome male listener wants to meet her, she convinces the ditzy but beautiful Noelle (Thurman) - a model who lives in her apartment building - to stand in for her, too shy to face him herself.

He of course falls head over heels in love, and Abby starts enjoying her new friendship with Noelle while feeling the sting of jealousy, knowing Brian (Chaplin) really loves her for her mind even when he thinks she lives in Noelle's beautiful body.

It can only end in tears when the truth comes out, and you just know Brian will be angry he's been lied to and Abby will regret it when it looks like she'll lose him. Like I said, it's a fairly mediocre movie but it has a few laughs, most of them thanks to Garofalo's casting when everyone else is eye candy.
