We had looked forward to seeing John Grogan’s “Marley and Me” movie, starring Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston, ever since we heard the news that Marley and Me would be showing on December 25th, Christmas Day.
Seeing a movie in a theater is a tradition for us on Christmas Day, but unfortunately, some low-life’s in Los Angeles thought it would entertaining and cute to ruin the Marley and Me ending for many moviegoers by defacing bus station banners and highway billboards with what happens at the end of the Marley & Me movie.
Having enjoyed reading the Marley and Me book, Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World’s Worst Dog, seeing the movie was at the top of the list of movies we planned to see. I already knew what the Marley and Me ending would be, but families and kids who hadn’t yet read the book probably didn’t appreciate the ending being ruined for them.
The yellow lab named Marley is described on Marley and Me Wiki as being somewhat high strung, boisterous, strong, powerful, endlessly hungry, eager to be active, often destructive of property and a somewhat uncontrolled dog. The story of Marley is a must read and/or a must-see movie.
Marley and Me is an endearing story, and if you haven’t yet read the Marley & Me book, you’re really missing out on a great story. It would just be nice if the losers in L.A. would get a life instead of getting their jollies from defacing public property and ruining the ending for people who haven’t yet read the book.
