Marley and Me
Channel 9, 7pm, Saturday
This film is about a cute, little puppy. Are you sold yet? Thought you would be.
But, seriously, this movie follows two newlyweds who purchase a mischievous golden Labrador pup and their story of the troublesome dog-turned valued member of their growing family.
Definitely a great feel-good movie to slump down on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and have a relaxing night full of laughs (and, maybe, some tears).

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
Channel 11, 6.30pm, Sunday
This instalment may not be as good as the ultimate Christmas movie, Home Alone, but the sequel gives a substantial nod to classic 1990s movies and the genius of former child star Macaulay Culkin.
A year after Kevin (Culkin) was left home alone and had to defeat a pair of incompetent burglars, he accidentally finds himself in New York City, and forced to stop them again; this time, from robbing a toy store.

If you haven’t seen this online phenomenon: A) where have you been? and B) get home right now and binge watch! This award-winning, heartstopping, highly addictive Netflix original comedy drama television series started out following a public relations executive’s journey after landing up in a women’s prison.
But it has developed into much more; the show’s tagline, “every sentence is a story”, sums up this epic saga more effectively.
Spoiler alert: You will get attached to the characters, bad things will happen and you will be left devastated.
But you’ll always want more – I challenge you to watch one episode.
