After seeing Marley and Me I felt the need to help my readers (all 5 of you) through the traumatic experience of what you are about to witness on the big screen. Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of adorable and funny parts in the film (Jamie is balking as I refer to Marley and Me as a film…) but there is also some of the most depressing stuff I have ever seen in a movie. I read the book, I knew there was going to be a sad part, but I hoped they would sort of glaze over it, not the case here.
Tips to follow:
-Don’t bring any sharp objects or an abundance of pills
-Wear waterproof mascara
-Park near the theater exit so as not to have as many people wondering if you just smoked a doobie because your eyes are so red
-Keep telling yourself it’s just a movie, it’s just a movie, oh wait, that’s not gonna work in this case
-Give your dog a big hug before you leave and when you get home
