When Chris, Marisa and Ty go for a walk in the park, they leave with the dog but in two subsequent scenes (penguin enclosure and hill side), the dog no longer appears to be with them. This is because Rufus was left with the dog walker sent by Jerry at approximately minute 34:15. At around 36:50, when Marisa realizes that she forgot Ty after she left the bench because of the paparazzi, and in the subsequent few seconds, you can see Ty leaving Rufus with the dog walker in the background.

So it's Cinderella. It's hard to imagine why that would bother anyone who'd seen the trailer, by the time you sit down to watch the movie you know the plot.
I may be the last person on earth to see Jennifer Lopez outside the checkout line. She's not bad looking but didn't impress me all that greatly as an actress, but she did tell the story. This may be a light- weight role for Fiennes (duh!) but I thought he carried it off well. The kid (Ty) was great, and Bob Hoskins was wonderful.
I think Pygmalian (Pretty Woman) is a better story, and Julia Roberts is obviously head and shoulders above Jennifer Lopez, but I certainly don't regret adding it to my Netflix queue!
