What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Nils van der Linden You'd expect more from the director behind the charming, witty and hugely entertaining The Devil Wears Prada. But, as they say, every dog has his day. This isn't it.
Sam Brighton ..touching love letter to canine craziness.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert This may be the first family film I've seen that will frighten more adults than children.
Damian Rogers Predictably affirming.
Peter Travers Watching the stars try to out-cutesy the mutt is one for the puke bucket.
C. Fuchs Bland and repetitive until the end.
Tomatometer Pet owners should love it, but Marley and Me is only sporadically successful in wringing drama and laughs from its scenario.
