Marley and Me

Watch it! I loved this movie. I usually don't like dog movies, but this one had a really good message. It mentioned dog parks, responsibility, kids with dogs and of course, doggie love.

Re: Marley and Me

I like that it shows the good side of owning a dog, but even more, the BAD. Usually dog movies encourage people to get out and get dogs immediately, but I think this movie accurately shows parents what they'll probably go through; puppy ****! Haha.

Bring a tissue!

Re: Marley and Me

Read the book, cried like a baby. It's so good and it stirs up emotions.

Try to be the person your dog thinks you are

Re: Marley and Me

My daughter read the childs version of the book (as did I) and loved it. We're going to see it probably tomorrow. I heard a movie critic on the radio who did not recommend it - said it was harsh because Marley dies at the end. Hmmm, like reality? I'm looking forward to it.

Re: Marley and Me

My son, daughter and daughter in law saw the movie.

The former got an advanced preview because she works for the humane society. I was told it was disappointing because the author of the book, John G, tended to focus more on himself then the dog. And there were several disconnects in the story.

My son thought that John G provided little good training for Marley and should not even own a dog.

Closing on a positive note my favorite is a movie called "Eight Below."

Re: Marley and Me

The book went into much more detail about Marley and less about John's career. Jenny G. actually had 4 kids. When I read the book I thought "these people are not doing anything right raising this dog". But this may be most people actually.
The movie was funny, pretty real life, and very sad at the end but if you have raised dogs they don't live forever. It is a very heart felt ending that will make you cry.

Training isn't expensive.... IT'S PRICELESS!

Re: Marley and Me

My husband has refused to go see this movie with me. He said there is no way he was going after seeing my reaction to the book.... so I cried just a little... ok,a lot.. but I still loved the book.

I think he is just afraid he'll cry.
