Thanks to its two central performances from [Owen] Wilson and [Jennifer] Aniston... it proves to be a fun, easy and totally unpretentious watch that has more bark than you might think.

In Marley and Me, as in life, both romance and laughs persist years after the wedding day.

OK, I admit I cried a small bucket at the end... but at least I hated myself for it. This is bland and obsequious tripe or, as my own dog would say, "Woof!"

I can vouch that director David Frankel succeeds in wringing out every last tear from the audience.

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.

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.

It left me crying like a five year old...

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.

...the strength of the finale effectively elevates everything that preceded it...

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.

Directed with admirable sensitivity and spot-on populist instincts...

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