First of all, My Boyfriends’ Dogs is not a typo, she really has multiple dogs from multiple ex-boyfriends! The premise is Baily Daley (cursed with a rhyming name!) is one of those women who conform to whatever their boyfriends want her to be, then freaks out and runs away at the altar, all while gaining a dog from the experience. As this is an all-too-common scenario, it is only fitting that Hallmark made a movie about it! It sounds like the film will be done in anthology format, though there might be a twist ending with an actual not terrible boyfriend. Or maybe another guy who has three cats from three ex-girlfriends. This potential Brady Bunch with animals situation is my ideal conclusion, and I hope to hope that is the outcome. Don’t let me down, Hallmark!
My Boyfriends’ Dogs is based on the book by Dandi Daley Mackall. Gary Goldstein (Beverly Hills 90210) and Jon Maas (12 Men of Christmas) adapted it for Hallmark. Terry Ingram (Chupacabra vs. the Alamo) directs.
The film stars Erika Christensen (Parenthood) as Bailey Daley, Joyce DeWitt, Michael Kopsa, Teryl Rothery, and Emily Holmes (Snakes on a Plane)
My Boyfriends’ Dogs premieres Saturday, October 18th on Hallmark Channel!
Bailey Daley (Erika Christensen) is a hapless young bride who has run away from the altar with not one, but three dogs she adopted from past relationships. Running into a small diner one rainy evening in a soaked wedding dress with her dogs at her feet, Bailey launches into the story of her strange predicament to the restaurant owners, Louie (Michael Kopsa) and Nikki (Joyce DeWitt). She explains that she hasn’t been able to find the right love, always longing for the more loyal, stable companionship she finds in her ex-boyfriends’ canine companions. Against the knowing advice of her mother Dina (Teryl Rothery) and best friend Amber (Emily Holmes), Bailey tries to transform herself into the perfect fit for each new guy she meets. As each relationship ends, Bailey adopts her ex’s dogs, but remains hopelessly single. Will a twist of fate that stormy night lead her to realize that true puppy love happens only after one stops searching for it?
