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
good , kinda funny the end is kinda sad even though the dog that played marley doesn't die so whats the point of crying anyway
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.
