Realistic and emotionally powerful
Life has its up and downs and so does “Marley and Me”. It’s inconsistently interesting and emotionally contrived, but somehow Marley got to me. I’m not exactly a dog-lover but I loved how the movie realistically portrayed the strong relationship of humans and their canine pals. The story isn’t cliché at all and it made me tear at least a couple of times. But like I said with realism comes dull moments as there were about 10 minutes of boring scenes; not really a huge setback but it was noticeable at least. It’s a sweet movie with a sweet cast (Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston and of course, Marley), and I’d recommend that you go see it with your family over a long holiday.
