Wost movie ever without a doubt !!!!!, 22 August 2011
Author: Michael Paul Skowron ( from Midland Michigan, USA

Let me begin with an apology to the people reading this. I am only giving this 1 star because you can not give it any lower. I also wish to apologize from the American people to the Author of Marley and Me, we are sorry that Hollywood has done this to your story.

Now with that said, why why why why why why..... why would you take a wonderful heartfelt movie like Marley & Me and try to milk it like a cash cow. This movie, which I sat through because my wife rented it for our children, was the worst thing I have seen in my life, and to date I have viewed about 7,000 movies, 5,240 of which we own. (okay we have no life) Marley is not a talking dog movie, you want a talking dog, go watch Scooby Doo, Marmaduke or the 1 million Air Bud movies and puppy sequels.

I sincerely wish Hollywood would stop doing this to movies, making useless sequels after sequel trying to get a buck. Yes, this was a direct to video movie, but it should have been freebie for walking into Wal-Mart. I can see the greeter, "Hi welcome to Wal-Mart, here's your free crappy movie, and a fork to gouge your eyes out after viewing it." I know they will never make any money to cover the coast of this movie, I am sure it is headed straight to the dollar store in a few weeks. I admit I watched it, we rented it from Family video (no way was I buying it, or even considering buying it at 15.99 at Wal-Mart, we had a free rental and the only thing it cost me was my time. Of which I am considering suing the studio for reparations for that. When even my 5yr old says 'dad this movie sucks can I go play" you know it is bad, this kid made me sit through Rango... twice which for all of the ways it annoyed me, she loved it. Regardless, if you are considering seeing this, please do not... you will beg for a mercy killing before it is over... This movie is definitely one of the ten signs of the Apocalypse. If this is any sign of the rest of the crap to come out of Hollywood in the near future, I am praying that the world will end like the crazy preacher guy was saying earlier this year in November... at least that way, we can not be tortured anymore with this kind of garbage. Really who gave this movie the okay... who said let's waste money and time, and all the respect our studio may still have... let's make a nonsensical kiddie version of Marley and me and call it the puppy years... That person was on some serious drugs... as were the people who said okay let's do it... here's your money...
