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!
