Marley and Me: The Puppy Years Movie Review

Marley and Me: The Puppy Years Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Aug 16, 2011
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

If you love dogs, you’re in for a treat: Marley and Me: The Puppy Years is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray! This movie follows Marley through all his fun puppy hi-jinx alongside his friend Brodi (played by cutie Travis Turner)!

Marley and Me: The Puppy Years starts out with Brodi being allowed to look after puppy Marley for the summer while the owners are away, and Brodi wants nothing more than to have a dog, but his mom says he must prove that’s he’s responsible enough to have one first, and Marley is the test. But as much as he is lovable, Marley is also unpredictable! The whole film is narrated through Marley’s point of view, and you get to see his comical interactions with the feisty orange cat next door and a couple of other adorable golden retriever puppies.

Brodi’s mom is hard working business woman, and has to leave him (and Marley) with his strict Grandpa for the summer, or as Marley calls him “the old wrinkly guy”! Brodi’s Grandpa is pretty strict and between all the chores his Grandpa has for him and Marley’s wacky antics, Brodi thinks it’s going to be a long summer. But then he gets an idea from his neighbor about entering Marley in a dog show to prove to his mother what a good idea having a dog could be, he even gets his grumpy gramps behind the idea! But Grandpa and Mom aren’t Marley’s only obstacles in winning the contest, Brodi has to train him and the rest of his team (who happen to be the neighbor’s golden retriever pups) and go up against the contest’s usual prize winner: a deranged European dog trainer obsessed with winning who terrorizes his team of dogs with shock collars and strict regimens! But he’s no match for Marley!

This is a fun look at what it might be like to be a puppy, and it certainly has more than its fair share of puppy cuteness and gags. If you love dogs, especially puppies, you’ll love the finale at the end where all the dogs run the obstacle course, and you might just be surprised at who makes an appearance!  It’s hard not to like something so full of puppies and the change in Brodi’s relationship with his Grandpa because of Marley is heart warming, but it would have been nice to see more of a spotlight on that and Brodi’s relationship to his Mom, even though the movie is all from Marley’s point of view. If you love animals, you should probably take this one home to enjoy!

Check out the trailer below!

CaptJolee: exactly. Pink_Cool_Girl: is that all you got out of my post? because if that alone stood out to you, then obviously you do care about it. We all have different opinions and I like Grace, that's the end of it. I know you like the Clairvoyants. But you don't have to act like Grace is the worst thing in the world because she's not. At least, most of America thinks that. It's not like she's gonna try to or probably even be able to stop them from being famous and having shows of their own. You go ahead and keep rooting for them, and I'll keep rooting for Grace. Sound good?
