Save some time; stay at home and think of your dead pets instead.

It's shaggy and scattered, but give Marley a biscuit for its realistic depiction of how powerful can be the bond between dogs and their "people."

If you like the Lassie films, or even Beethoven and Old Yeller, you'll probably find this one easy to like.

Shadows on the Wall

Although billed as a romantic comedy, this film is neither: it's a drama spanning about two decades in a marriage

I'm fairly sure that the book and the film shared a common goal -- to make its audience sit, stay, laugh, cry, then move on -- and at those modest aspirations, the movie succeeds.

Even dog skeptics might be surprised how deftly Marley & Me adapts newspaper columnist John Grogan's book...into the equivalent of a kid's movie for adults. [Blu-ray]

Sometimes, and especially on a crummy afternoon in the middle of March, it's nice to be able to switch off and settle down to enjoying the sight of middle-class families eating well and playing together in sprawling, bucolic gardens.

Marley & Me is a film of moments and many of them are cute. For anyone who has ever had a dog or a close pet, there's bound to be some connection.

The conclusion transforms at least this part of the film from sappy romance to beautifully authentic meditation on life, death and a family's love for its long-time loyal dog.

It is a very positive film, so it won't appeal to cynics, but it should appeal to just about everyone else.

The idea that this screen dog is so cute and lovable that everything ripped, chewed, swallowed or destroyed can merely be replaced and ignored is more out of a Stephen King reality than the world as we know it.

Guardian

In the cinema, all of us tough, cynical critics had tears welling in our eyes, swallowing hard; our lips, so often curled in a cheap sneer, were now trembling, because of the same desperately sad thought: "Owen Wilson used to be really good..."

There is something wildly odd about a film that measures human happiness with the whims of a dog.

Evidently contrived and something of an ungainly hybrid, the film shares its canine protagonist's facility for wearing down your resistance.

My Dog Skip for people in mid-life crises, it's too talky and trouble-laden for tykes but will doubtless prove as critic-proof to dog-lovers and the stars' fans as it did in the US.
