Marley & Me

So, we went to see Marley & Me on Sunday night. I had no idea what the whole movie/story was about -- except for an owner with a 'rambunctious' yellow lab. It was cute...makes Freedom look like a saint. HOWEVER, the three of us were not prepared for the ending. It was soooo sad, but I'm sure it was mainly because it's only been a little over two months since we had to let Beamer go. I'm not sure how I managed to not "burst out" into tears...somehow I managed to keep as quiet as possible. I'm thinking, though, that it was probably a good thing to go see the movie and get more of my emotions out. After all, I am one that holds my emotions in instead of expressing them.

What do you think?


  1. UGH! That's what I thought! LOL We went and saw it on Christmas Day and I wasn't thrilled to be seeing it because, like you, I didn't really know anything about what it was about, either. Then the ending came...UGH! I sat their crying and crying and crying...I even cried after walking out of the movie. I hate watching movies that make me cry like that...but all in all it was a very sweet movie. I would definitely recommend it as a modern day Old Yeller. :)

  2. Oh my gosh- I went Friday. I SOBBED like a baby. Kent told me SHHHH! He cried too. It was AWFUL! They should have ended it on the hill when he was talking. The entire vet scene was way too much for me to handle. AWFUL! Loved everything but the end!
