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.

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.
March 20, 2009
Directed with admirable sensitivity and spot-on populist instincts...
March 15, 2009
It is a very positive film, so it won't appeal to cynics, but it should appeal to just about everyone else.
March 13, 2009
There's much more to this than just the cute dog.
March 13, 2009
Evidently contrived and something of an ungainly hybrid, the film shares its canine protagonist's facility for wearing down your resistance.
March 12, 2009
Belly laughs are few, a sharp script keeps you on your toes. However, Kathleen Turner as a Barbara Woodhouse-style dog trainer, leg-humped by Marley, is a sight you have to see.
March 12, 2009
A surprisingly moving portrait of family life over the course of 15 years, enlivened by strong, likeable performances.

Somehow, I fell in the end for this dog-gone sweet little movie.
