This film is billed as a comedy but its more like a serious drama with some light hearted moments about a couples relashionship and there quest to have a kid while having a naughty dog called marley. if your looking for a funny film this isn't it ( its not funny at all and doesn't really try to be ) . its billed as a turner and hooch type movie but its more like a drama of how a couple cope with work kids and a over active dog.

Marley and Me

The film which stars Jennifer Aniston (Jenny), Owen Wilson (John), Eric Dane (Sebastian), Kathleen Turner (Mrs. Kornblut) and Alan Arkin (Arnie Klein). I was really surprised how engaging the story, dog and characters were. The story telling was never wearisome and the pace was always moving. Making you wait for the next scene to happen. Jenny and John adopt a puppy, the first one who went to them. The couple marries and as their family grows so does the troublesome Marley. They learn a lot being with him, John and Jenny learn more about themselves. The premise may seem simple but the execution was really effective and delightful. The film would not have been good without the flexibility of the main leads. Rarely do you see Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston stretch their acting ab...

Marley and Anyone But Me

It would take a dog fanatic (and you know who you are) to love this romantic comedy cum household horror fantasy that is centered around a hyperkinetic canine. Frenzied is not too strong a term to describe the exaggerations of pet behavior for the sake of creating a unique starring animal role. To the rest of us, the notion that a young married couple would forgive and forget the devastation caused by this abhorrent graduate from terror school named Marley strains credulity as much as comfort level.

While it's based on a memoire, and it purports to be based on the author's true-life experiences with his Labrador Retriever, the screen version is way too exaggerated to believe that this approaches a faithful representation of the reality. The idea that Marley's so cute and lovable that e...

Marley's a Good Dog

There is sad and then there is Marley sad. Most sad movies don't affect me that much, but this one really was over the top. By the time I left the theater, the small crowd of 8 that went to see it was all in tears.

It was the story of John Grogan, a man who surprises himself. In the movie he wants to be a reporter but finds that he is better writing columns about his dog and life. Instead of accepting this, he makes himself unhappy with the circumstances. Meanwhile, his wife Jennifer, is in a similar boat since she quit her job at the newspaper to be a full-time mother. What neither one of them realize is how good their life really is.

I think this is a great story of how life surprises you and you can make whatever you want out of it. It is a good message that things get tough and...

I read the book and Loved it!  But I don;t know how you can make a book that is basically a collection of stories about a guy and his dog in to a movie.  There is no plot line in the book and there is no conflict or conflict resolution in it ether unless you count the dog dieing in the end as conflict resolution.  I am very leery about this movie.  I will probably just rent it so I can be disappointed in the privacy of my own home.
