I'm so scared to see that movie. Dogs, especially if they die, are the one thing guaranteed to make me cry.
Hi, could you give us a review of the movie please?
I'm too scared too, for the same reason as Kristin. I never got over Old Yeller.xxAM
I'm too scared too. same reason as Anne-Marie and Kristin. Just looking at that picture of Marley wearing that bow makes me tear up a bit. And if it makes the octopus cry - Gloriosa, you know there's no hope for the rest of us!
Don't know about the movie, but Times Square at Christmas...that I'd like to see.
Don't even get me started about Old Yeller. Marley & Me would be worse, though, because my dad has a sweet yellow lab. If Marley dies at the end, I'm toast.As far as cold-blooded grief, though, I heard octopuses cry at just about anything. Now, if the Assisssstant had needed a hanky...I'm going to be a geek, now. I read an article years ago about how some researchers think octopuses show personalities and emotion. This one is the best I could find, but it describes octopuses begging like a dog. Sort of circling back to Marley & Me.http://www.thecephalopodpage.org/octopan.php
I liked the book...so I'm hoping the movie is as good.
honestly, that movie looks so dumb. But I'll probably watch it on a Sunday afternoon.
I was reading John Grogan in the Philly Inquirer for years before he every wrote M&M, including the column that led him to write the book in the first place, so I feel like he's an old friend. I'm worried that Owen Wilson will seem like an impostor. OTOH, the movie was filmed around where I live, so it'll be fun to pick out all the familiar sights. Hankies be damned!
Marley & Me and Owen Wilson--yes, I will be there.
Are we on the same wavelength? I posted about my own personal Marley last week. No, he's not an octopus.
