Becky and I took the kids to see Marley & Me tonight at the Kerasotes theaters in Castle Rock, CO. The Fandango movie website at Marley & Me
describes the movie as follows:
“The Grogans adopt the cute, twelve pound yellow Labrador, who in no time at all, grows into a 100-pound steamroller of unbridled energy that turns the Grogan home into a disaster area.”
Marley & Me stars Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson and is a story about a guy and a girl who get married and buy their first totally unruly dog that grows old with them as they go from being newlyweds to having a family. Unfortunately, the first half of the movie is all about their sex lives and their whacky dog, along with their jobs and whether or not they should have children together at the time. Mr. Grogan is trying to decide if he should have been a reporter instead of a columnist at a newspaper and his dog has helped make his career a success.
The movie probably should have been rated PG-13, but once again the rating system in Hollywood is completely out of whack as we have seen in recent films we’ve been reviewing. Corban was ticked that they kept swearing and as he put it, “the woman kept getting naked in the movie.” Bianca and her friend Meghan, the neighbor girl who is eight years old like Corban, really liked the movie. Conroy leaned over about half way through and said, “Dad, this is a rental and it should have been rated PG-13”.
The movie is pretty good and redeems itself in the second half of the film, but for the most part it was pretty boring and watching the dog be a nuisance for two hours was a bit much. Becky and I both thought it was a rental and out of all of us, Bianca and her friend liked it the most.
