Marley & Me
Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston embark on married life by moving to South Florida and acquiring a dog, the incorrigible Marley. The film traces their lives and the impact of Marley upon them.
It occurred to me watching this film that it is a movie version of a blog diary documenting the daily highs and lows of marriage and family life. Nothing remarkable happens to the family but the story is engaging anyway. I have liked Aniston every time I have seen her and I feel she is an underrated performer. I am less keen on Wilson mainly because his voice irritates me somewhat but I quite liked the way jeans and trousers sit on his body in this film.
Although I have never been much of an 'animal person' I enjoyed the antics on view.
A surprisingly pleasant movie.
