Movie Review: Marley and Me *


Sweetie manage to forget a copy of the Marley & Me paperback on my desk a little while a go and, knowing me Ill just pick anything up and read it. I wasn't impressed by the penmenship of the 'author' one tiny bit and didn't get past the first chapter. I quietly laid it down and sent a text to little Sweetie to remind her that the book was stinking up my room.

Plot Summary by IMDB.com

"After their wedding, newspaper writers John and Jennifer Grogan move to Florida. In an attempt to stall Jennifer's "biological clock", John gives her a puppy. While the puppy Marley grows into a 100 pound dog, he loses none of his puppy energy or rambunctiousness. Meanwhile, Marley gains no self-discipline. Marley's antics give John rich material for his newspaper column. As the Grogans mature and have children of their own, Marley continues to test everyone's patience by acting like the world's most impulsive dog."

Do me a favour... Who the hell cares? How tapped out does that 'writer' have to be if all the 'juice' he can get is from his what, 'rambunctious' mutt? Good use of the thesaurus there buddy, you also struggling for words to describe this shmatz fest?

 - Jen don't need a biological clock!,  Marley looking pretty tame to me, and Owen just looks embarrased - 

Verdict: Pants... Don't watch it, it's crap. Unless you haven't been laid in years, take your latest prospect but otherwise rather use the ticket stub as a roach...

Peace out:)
