    Marley & Me - ending question

    I loved the book! But I can't say the movie looks the best, though I would be willing to watch it & give it a chance.

    Just a quick question for anyone who has watched it already... does Marley die at the end? You can PM me the answer if you want, I don't want to spoil the end for anyone else if they don't want to know.

    Thanks.

    Took the kids to this last night. I've not read the book. We loved it. Darling movie, I think Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston did a great job, it's a very heartwarming flick.

    TVJunkie - do you still need a PM? Or do you have your answer.

    I thought it was a great movie - hilariously funny yet sad when there was no other alternative.

    We had a dog named Marley who died 2 years before this book was published, so it has always hit a little too close to home. I would like to see the movie, but I think I'll wait until I can rent it and watch it at home.

    I loved my yellow goldendor (half golden/half lab). Smartest and gentlest dog I ever had. End of the movie was very tough for me. I saw it three days ago and it still is dragging up hard emotions.

    I was only ever able to read "The Yearling" once - can't even get past a chapter or two now. Never read or saw "Old Yeller". Won't read or see "Marley". Just can't do it.

    I can't see if either. I'm still traumatized from reading Where the Red Fern Grows when I was in the 6th grade!

    I can't read the Yearling and avoid Old Yeller.

    I did read Marley and it was a fabulous book, but sad at the end. But the rest of it was worth reading. And i don't say that often because I can't stand books or movies where the dog dies. One of the reasons I didn't watch I am Legend until just recently.

    But I also read Merle's Door recently and loved it as well. And I cried at the end of it too.
