Marley and Me
Husband and I saw Marley and Me with our family, and we all loved it. I couldn't wait to see the movie because I adored the book. But, I tried not to set my expectations too high because I knew that the movie might not live up to the book. However, the movie did not disappoint. In fact, I would say that it was just as good as the book. (That's high praise from a book lover!) I don’t want to give anything away about the movie, so I’ll just say to expect to laugh a lot. And bring tissues. At one poignant part of the movie, you could hear lots of sniffling throughout the theater, and I quickly wiped away a few tears, too. Just then, Husband leaned over and whispered a goofy remark to me, which he knew would make me laugh. So while everyone else is weeping together, I’m laughing as quietly as I can, my body shaking with laughter. I can only wonder what the people near us thought, when they saw me, the only person laughing at the saddest moment of the movie. Regardless, this was one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while, and I definitely recommend it. But, the inappropriate laughter is up to you.
