  • Watching the stars try to out-cutesy the mutt is one for the puke bucket. show more

  • You'd have to be made of granite to resist all the charms of a free-spirited, 100-pound Lab. Yet the production manages, against heavy odds, to make its canine star an incorrigible bore. show more

  • The humans, particularly the wistful Wilson, deadpan Alan Arkin (as Grogan's editor) and Nathan Gamble, a 10-year-old who plays the eldest Grogan child, are very affecting. Aniston, who has great offbeat comic timing, doesn't quite find her rhythm here. show more

    A movie about a dog, Marley, and a young family. The dog is very loving but extremely destructive. Marley defies even the most determined dog trainers. The Owen Wilson plays a reporter who writes for a Florida newspaper. He wants to report the news as an immersion reporter covering relevant world news. Instead he is delegated a column of local community activities that incorporates his own commentary. He is unhappy and feels like a "Porsche on Blocks." His family grows and changes, Marley gets older but not less rambunctious, and finally Owen gets a shot at his dream job in another state with another newspaper. SPOILER ALERT*** A dog loving friend of mine once said after he buried his third labrador, "If I had known then, what I know now, I would have had a kid; they live longer." Well, Marley is now an old dog and is facing death. This is a very sad poignant moment and is extremely touching (and well acted.) This may, (or may not) be a good introduction for young kids about death and how families/people deal with it. As a dog movie, Marley & Me can stand toe to toe with Old Yeller and Lassie Come Home.
