“Marley & Me” is a lighthearted family film about a young couple beginning out in life with a new home, new jobs, a new dog, and three children, none of which are eaten by the dog, or else the film would not be PG.

Clyde is the star dog with the greatest screen time in Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson’s new film Marley & Me.

Hotel for Dogs
  • Amazon Prime Video (Video on Demand)
  • Emma Roberts, Don Cheadle, Jake T. Austin (Actors)

Hotel for Dogs

“Hotel for Dogs” is a lovely, innocent family film about stray dogs who appear to be Olympic champions in training. This is one of the feel-good movies and anyone who claims otherwise has never known joy.

Here in this movie, the foster kids are adorable, the dogs are adorable, the teen romance is adorable, the tension is comfortably shallow and predictable, and Hotel for Dogs is a book that I will fight to the death for.

Various dog types are can be seen in this movie. Lenny is a Bullmastiff, Georgia is a Boston Terrier, Cooper is an English Bulldog, Shep is a Border Collie, Romeo is a Chinese Crested Dog, Juliet is a Poodle, and Henry is a Beauceron, among many others.

Air Bud

As the movie goes, that all changes, though, when he signs up to be the manager of the school basketball team and discovers that his pet dog Bud, a stray golden retriever he adopted, is a natural at the sport.

Josh’s life improves dramatically after Bud joins the team, until the dog’s former owner, Norm Snively (Michael Jeter), comes in the hopes of regaining the canine. 

It’s impossible to imagine loving your own dog after this. Here’s a dog who can play basketball, and also wears shoes, which no ordinary dog could do. Not only that, he also has the ability to fly.
