Movie Review: Marley and Me

Reviewed by Olivia

Who doesn’t like to re-watch the experience of having a dog when you’re not the one putting up with the horrors such a cute face can inflict? I know I do. It was a very good adaptation of John Grogan’s novel. I was actually surprised at how funny it actually was, and to those who have already undergone the experience of having a puppy, well then, it will only be funnier for you. My only problem with the movie was the ending. The crying girls and me would prefer a slightly happier ending than what the director offered us. Other than that I can’t complain, it was one of the best movies of 2008. It’s nice to actually see an entertaining movie that doesn’t get on your nerves; few movies come with that old kind of originality and entertainment any more. A worthy see.
