Marley and Me: A Movie Review


I very rarely go to the movies, but since I loved this book so much back when I read it, I decided that I was going to go see the movie regardless! I had planned to drag the charming comedian, but trying to schedule movies together is pretty impossible, so I found a friend that wanted to go instead. I went yesterday for the matinee. I think it has been years since I was at the movie theatre during the afternoon. Anyway, so I try not to get too many expections when I watch a movie that I read the book of because it is really hard to take an entire book and make the movie true to it. They did do a pretty good job, though. There were many laughter moments, you saw Marley at his best and worst, and you watched the growing of the family around him. I think Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson did a good job. The charming comedian loves Jennifer Aniston, so I think he probably would have went happily if I told him that she was in it ahead of time.

All this book and movie does, though, is make me miss my dogs... It's been over a year since I lost Sandy and I still have moments where I wish she was still here. I really hope I am at a place in my life soon where I can get a dog, because I hate not having one!

  3. Well...we went to see it yesterday. As much as I loved the book and even liked the movie, it was sad. So sad, all 3 of my kids were bawling by the end. We lost Ninja in August, and I think I probably shouldn't have taken them to see it. Instead of pointing out all the good memories, it just kind of made them miss him all over again!

  4. I really want to go see this, but I just know I will end up sobbing :(

    Your Sandy was a beautiful girl, I read your previous posts about her and she was a lucky dog to have found such a caring home with you.

  5. It was a sad movie. Everyone in the theatre was crying! I don't cry at movies, but that is just me... Anyway, there was hardly a dry eye in the place. I last Sandy over a year ago, and I still felt like it was too soon. Sandy was still alive when I read the book..

Seems to be that pet lovers will appreciate this movie very much I saw on http://www.80millionmoviesfree.com to day fantastic movie for every body I think.

  9. I haven't decided if I want to see this movie or not. I cannot bring myself to read the book (reading nonfiction books where animals die in the end upsets me too much).
