Day 8: A movie that makes you sad
Marley & Me
If you have seen this movie, and you have not cried, I can only assume you hate dogs, or animals in general. Even thinking about this story makes me produce tears.
First I’ve read the book, all alone, crying in my bed, it’s so damn beautiful. This story is based on a true story of columnist John, his wife Jen, their kids and the dog, Marley. First of all, we, personally, have a dog at home, and we have always had pets, and I am also one of those women who make crazy sounds seeing a cute doggy. So that might explain to you why I love this movie so much.
This script is very realistic and displays the lives of John and Jen together from the get-go. They decide to get a puppy, who turns out to be a horrible dog, who just never listens. They have their ups-and-downs and it contains comedic scenes where you just can’t help to laugh out loud (think of the car/dog-chasing scene). With Owen Wilson as John, and Jennifer Aniston as Jen, I think this movie is one of their best.
Have you not seen this movie yet? And don’t you just really need a quiet evening alone on the couch with a glass of wine? Put on your pj’s, put the bottle in front of you and watch this movie. It’s definitely worth it.
