Yesterday we watched Best in Show (2000) and Marley and Me (2008).
My wife dreams of doggies. Yesterday we did a double dip of dog movies. Best in show is probably the best of the Christopher Guest formula. My wife found the dogs pretty cute but I think we agree that Marley and Me is a little better for dog action and surprisingly is better directed and has bigger laughs. Best in show was a favorite comedy for a while and maybe the jokes and the format have gone a little stale after the many other incarnations of the same movie in a different setting, although they're all entertaining enough.
I never want to enjoy Marley and Me. I'm not the biggest dog person and I don't care for the tear-jerking ending, but it's a beautifully shot movie on its own. It doesn't have spectacular settings but the bright colors bring a sense of the happy life Marley has to the screen. I'm a sucker for Owen Wilson's acting, he's pretty engaging, but it's kind of annoying that Jennifer Aniston always get stuck playing a wet blanket movie who is frustrated by the fun that is being had in whatever movie she is in.
