When Florida newspaper reporters John (Owen Wilson) and Jenny (Jennifer Aniston) Grogan obtain a "clearance puppy"—an 8-week-old Labrador Retriever that they name Marley—they are unprepared for the responsibilities, trials, tribulations, and rewards of raising "the world's worst dog".

Marley & Me is an autobiographical book by American journalist, John Grogan. The story revolves around Grogan and his family's life during the 13 years that they lived with their Labrador retriever, Marley, and the relationships and lessons from this period.

Marley's stomach twists for the second time. This time, the vet can't save him, and it becomes necessary to put Marley to sleep. John stays at his side the whole time until Marley's eyes close. The Grogans bury him in the yard, with each family member giving him a picture, letter, or remembrance of their love for him. The movie ends with John looking back on his memories and realizing what Marley taught him: A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor. If you give him your heart, he'll give you his.

The music in the teaser trailer for the movie Marley & Me is the main theme (title music) from "Chariots of Fire" by Vangelis.
