Marley and Me: The Puppy Years on DVD Aug. 16 Review


MARLEY & ME: THE PUPPY YEARS
Arriving On Blu-ray and DVD August 16
Exclusively at Walmart, Sam’s Club and Walmart.com

Anyone who reads our blog knows my son loves dogs and cats. I think this movie has moved him to the Dogs are the best category. As a kid I loved dogs. I wanted to be a vet at one time. I have fond memories of my first dog and I know my son will have great memories of our black lab we have now. He strongly knows the word "dog" and shouts it anytime he sees a dog, a picture of a dog or even a cartoon of one. He can pick out a dog in a picture full of items and in a crowd of people he will let you know if there is a dog in there somewhere.

Marley as a Puppy


My husband and I thought the first Marley movie was sweet. I really wanted to see this movie Marley and  Me: The Puppy Years since its a prequel to the original movie. It is a really cute movie and my son loved it.

Summary:  
"One loveable canine goes on a magical new adventure for the entire family in MARLEY & ME: THE PUPPY YEARS, cuddling up on Blu-ray and DVD August 16 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Filmed on location in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia by acclaimed director Michael Damian (Flicka 2, Moondance Alexander), this touching side story to the original $240 million global box office smash Marley & Me introduces us to Marley as the lovable pint sized pup.

Fall into puppy love with “the world’s worst dog,” who now has a frisky voice and an attitude to match.  Join Marley for his mischievous puppy years, as he and his summer pal, Bodie Grogan, wreak havoc on a neighborhood dog contest.  Marley outwits Dobermans, Shepherds and Collies, while stealing hearts in his own unique and lovable way.  Get your paws on MARLEY & ME: THE PUPPY YEARS and fetch big laughs for the whole family!"





This is definitely a family friendly movie that has the story line of good vs bad, a hint of a romance story (a bit of puppy love one might say!) and of course good wins!

There is a specific part of this movie that makes my son laugh out loud. The first time I heard him laugh from it I too laughed from how tickled he was by Marley. He normally claps and has some giggles during movies but this was a full on laugh from the belly. Every time we watch the movie that scene every time gets him laughing.
Marley goes into the kitchen to see there is a Spam sandwich on the counter he tries to jump up and get it down but instead it flies into the air. My son laughs so hard it makes me smile so big.

This is a cute and family friendly movie that any Marley fan or dog lover should see.
