I’m pretty sure this was my exact reaction to the following movies: Bambi, Dumbo, My Dog Skip, Marley and Me, War Horse (the latter was just last year and I soaked through 17 tissues — I counted). Usually my kryptonite is ANY MOVIE with animals but these kids are a little more sensitive to their own mortality, as expressed through “feel good movie” The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
I feel slightly sadistic laughing at the two brothers, whose parents recorded them on the ride home from the theatre. It’s probably so funny because we’ve all been there.
What movie always gets you?
Owen Wilson is getting his life back on track, following a suicide attempt in August.
OK! Magazine reports that Wilson will begin filming “Marley and Me” next month in Miami. Co-starring Jennifer Aniston, the film is the adaptation of the memoirs of John Grogan. According to IMdB.com, Wilson and Aniston’s characters will learn “important life lessons from their adorable, but naughty and neurotic dog.”
While healing, Wilson dropped out of the Ben Stiller film “Tropic Thunder,” so his return to work is a good sign that the Butterscotch Stallion is back on his feet.
