Storyline

Fatherless Bodi Grogan dreams of his own puppy, but the best he can get from his workaholic ma Carol is minding friends' naughty pup Marley while he's dumped for the summer with grandpa Fred, a rather strict US Marines veteran. If they do really well a permanent dog is on the cards, so Brdoy resolves to j-enter the local puppy obedience show, which only allows teams, so he recruits Fred's friendly neighbor Crouch's sibling pups Moose and Fuchsia. They're up against ruthless title defender Hans Von Weiselberger, whose henchman help him cheat and terrorize their own Dobermann pups, but grandpa's military experience comes in handy once he sides with team Bodi.

Cute movie
18 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

Every review I've read for this movie has failed to actually review the movie and just complains that its not the original Marley and Me.

To clarify, this movie is NOT supposed to be connected to the original other than the fact that it contains a puppy version of Marley as the main character. The acting is decent, but don't expect Hollywood star grade acting (which you shouldn't because the film contains no-named actors). The story is cute and is sure to sit well with your kids. The film and audio quality are good, but there's no fancy special effects or anything flashy to make it stand out. There are a couple scenes that will be funny and enjoyable to people of any age, but for the most part this is directed towards children. Overall, this would be a great movie to rent for your kids if you need to keep them occupied for a while, but definitely isn't worth buying!
