Animal lovers will enjoy "Man Trouble", a comedy more about dog than man.
Jack Nicholson is a dog trainer with ads that say something like, "Get a big ferocious dog to guard your home."
When a timid little wimp of an opera singer finds her apartment burglarized - obviously the work of her estranged husband, whom she is in the process of divorcing - she decides she needs a dog. That, of course, is how she meets Nicholson, whom she immediately falls for. Meanwhile, she is staying at her nutty sister's house and has a few unexpected guests.
"Man Trouble" was jocular but a bit too predictable. While the dogs turned out to be more interesting than the human characters, Jack Nicholson is a fine actor and certainly benefited this film.
My rating: 2 1/2 stars
Rating : PG-13 (for some thematic elements emphasizing sexuality, and for language)
