movie: marley and me

Movie: Marley and Me
Directed by: David Frenkel
Starring: Jennifer Aniston, Owen Wilson, Eric Dane

Score: 2.5 of 5.0

John Grogan was reporter who just got married and moved to Florida with his wife, Jenny. One night, Jenny mentioned about baby, John decided to give her a puppy as a gift. The dog, named after the great Bob Marley, turned out to be an untamed force of nature. Despite the uneasiness Marley caused, the Grogan loves their dog no matter what. Marley even became John's inspiration when he was asked to be a columnist.

The movie received many mixed reviews. Some said that the book tells a better story (which made me a bit curious about it), but I think it's pretty funny. Jennifer Aniston is lovely as always. Although it's kind of difficult to watch Aniston and Wilson having 3 children and the oldest one is at least a sixth grader. It's like watching Jodie Foster in The Nim's Island. Well, I survive the same torture, mainly because the dogs that played Marley are so cute.
