Synopsis


Marley & Me
Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston go to the dogs with Marley & Me, a tale of a couple embarking on the adventure of marriage, career, family, and the world's worst dog. At least that's how writer and newlywed John comes to describe his blonde lab, Marley, when he takes the puppy home and finds that the fluff-ball has an uncanny ability to eat and/or destroy just about anything. As years go by, John and his wife, Jennifer, contemplate having babies and moving across the country, while Marley grows into 100 lbs. of funny, wild, completely untrainable canine companionship -- as well as one of the most important people in the family. Marley & Me is based on the best-selling autobiographical book by columnist John Grogan. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

    Sweet, caring, and great fun for the whole family

    Pet-Lovers and familys will really be able to sink their teeth into this one. This movie was excellent. Not only was it a sweet true story, but it had great actors too. Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston, and even Alan Arkin makes a couple appearances. One thing I really enjoyed about this movie was how cleverly it balanced the drama and comedy. It had me laughing and crying. Its only flaw was that it received a PG rating when it deserved a PG-13 one. It wasn't really dirty, but it had a lot of innapropriate references and even a few innapropriate scenes. But its still great for the family, it should just soar over their heads. Even though the ending will make you bawl like a little girl, its a really great movie.......LIke I said its sweet, caring, and fun for the whole family.

    Wonderfully Magical

    This is my favorite movie of it's kind. It is the only one that has made me feel actually emotional in a long time. Jennifer Anniston and Owen Wilson worked perfectly. But the performance that struck me the most is one people may not even consider. It is the one of the boy Nathan Gamble who played their son Patrick at the oldest. He was brilliant and convincing as if already a seasoned actor. And of course Marley himself was wonderfully entertaining. But it's not about the dog so much as the way he affected lives. Although I never read the book, I though the story was fantastic. It was magically happy, and fun, funny, and heartbreakingly sad. I will treasure this movie as a classic forever. 10/10!

    This movie provides an in-depth look on a newly wed couple and how they grow together through the hardships of life. Along with their newly acquired pup Marley, Aniston and Wilson's characters learn about the challenges of parenting, job changes, housing arrangements, all while maintaining the attitude that the road that they have chosen is the path that they are dedicated to staying on. Marley and Me will inspire younger couples, showing the difficulties and feats that come with every relationship, as well as the veterans, knowing that you can only appreciate the life you have lived.

    Decent movie. Unnecessary profanity.

    We let our daughters watch this and were very surprised it contained profanity. Words you don't want your 5 year-old repeating. This DVD opens with a trailer for Bride Wars that has several curse words in it... for no reason. When your young kids watch it, have them skip that trailer. The movie itself also has a bit of unnecessary profanity. Like in one early scene where Jennifer Aniston shouts "d _ _ n!" when she sees a dead plant in the kitchen. 100% unnecessary in this KIDS MOVIE!

    My son saw the dog on the front of the box and wanted it. It's a little to serious for little kids. If you do let young questionable kids watch this one be ready for a couple big talks from it(I don't want to spoil it for anyone so watch it before your kids if you are worried about it). Or if you want you really little kid to watch the movie it won't hold therie attention for very long. Don't get me wrong it is a good movie for people probably 9 or 10 and up.

    If you are looking for a feel good family style comedy this is just what you are looking for. This has the full range of emotional drama and comedy in all ways a family comedy should. It shows the ups and downs of family life while the heart if the movie is pure. I don't like to give away spoilers so I'll just say it goes from beginning to end and teaches good lessons while making the whole family laugh. Highly recommended.

    Awesome Movie, but not reccomended for little kids

    This is a great movie, but it has lots of profanity and some se xual parts. I've read the book, and the movie just looks like an edited version of the book. Don't get me wrong, I love the book and the movie, but the book is far more se xual and has way more cuss words than the movie. And finally, I would NOT recommend this movie to kids 9 and under. I am suprised this movie wasn't PG-13, but it is a good movie.

    I don't know what I'd do if I had a dog like Marley. I'm not sure my patience would outweigh my anger enough to keep him past one crunch shredding, much less the multiple times the family endured it. They were certainly rewarded with an unforgettable experience, and I feel this film does a good job of showing just how adorably lovable this unruly monster really is.
