marley and me

Finally a movie with a real life ending. I have seen so many movies, in my childs age group,he's 9, that you think well this will be OK nothing bad ever happens. When in fact it should. The kids, the grownups all need to see stories aren't always happily ever after. This was the most touching movie I have ever seen. My son cried for the first time ever at a movie and we are movie buffs, he cried all the way home and again that night. But two movies later and several days have past and I asked him his favorite movie and it is Marley and Me. He's a super big animal lover, I am not, but i could still see the importance of showing a movie about real life and what eventually happens to all dogs, kitties, people--well at least its a start! Finally a movie with a real life ending--it should be movie of the year. i'm so tired of these lame happy ending movies that could never happen, like BOLT for example. As far as the acting I thought it was great. Owen could have shown ONE tear while he was with Marley on his death bed, thats the only problem I had. This movie was superb. It was comic geniuos and yes with a sad most touching excellent ending. Take your kids to see this movie. It will not dissapoint and what you do take from this movie will last you alifetime.

Maudlin & Me

I went to see Marley & Me hoping it would be a heart warming story of a family and their dog. Instead, I saw this poorly acted "drama" (except for Alan Arkin's small role as a convincing newspaper manager) with annoying pop music in the background. Really, Hollywood, spend of few of those big bucks you make and pay for a THEME SOUNDTRACK.

Totally unconvincing, these 2 professional reporters played by Aniston and Owens are tracked through roughly 10 years of their marriage with their dog. Even though both their hairstyles have not changed in these years, their dogs and children are replaced with aging counterparts.
Of course, we are supposed to fall in love with the dog, Marley, who destroys everything in sight. How cute. Two college educated professionals with good incomes could not figure out how to tame one of the most popular and intelligent breeds today, the Labrador Retreiver. I believe they are used for seeing eye dogs for the blind!!
Save your money and tears, rent another good dog movie like "My Dog Skip". And watch out; with the money this movie made, look for 10 more similar stinkers like this from Hollywood.

Sucks - Dont Do It

This is no PG film -- Try R.
This had at least 4 sex scenes.
The final 30 minutes was unrelenting pain for the viewer as you watch a dog dieing -- (adults and kids left the movie and stood outside the doors waiting for this movie to end).
The front cover of a puppy you want to hug is completely missleading. Along with the sex/dieing scenes was constant yelling/screaming/a dog out of control/hokie/forced scenes. The focus revoles around the father not the dog.
What a headache -- I am off for some easy going movie with the kids and get drilled with this thing.
You will regret going to this.
Don't do it.

I read the book while I was on an airplane because it had aniston and owen on the cover, and I do love dogs, the movie was just how I imagined it to be, they chose the right actor to play these parts, and I cried and will see it again and again, GOD BLESS CLEARANCE PUPPY!!!

Marley and me

Being a dog lover, I have loved and lost several dogs in my lifetime. I also happen to be a current proud owner of a (bad) or shall I say mischievous dog named Mali. This movie left me nearly sobbing at the end. It is touching how much our animals are a part of our families and we all have very different unique relationships with them.
