No offense to Tom Bosley, but The Back-Up Plan‘s LA premiere was about as low on starpower as that Miami screening last week where Jennifer Lopez dressed up like a cheetah. Forced to think outside the “celeb guest” box, the filmmakers rolled out Nubbins, one of three terriers to play wheelchair-bound Nuts in the movie. Here’s the thing: Nubbins isn’t a special needs dog—he only plays one in the movie. While this must not qualify as animal abuse (the American Humane Association actually teamed with The Back-Up Plan, in which J. Lo plays a pet boutique owner, to promote animal adoption), shoving a dog in a flower-filled wheelchair for a photo op weirds us out just a little. Wouldn’t J. Lo walking a dog be cute enough? Poor guy!
