After their wedding, newspaper writers John and Jennifer Grogan move to Florida. In an attempt to stall Jennifer's "biological clock", John gives her a puppy. While the puppy Marley grows into a 100 pound dog, he loses none of his puppy energy or rambunctiousness. Meanwhile, Marley gains no self-discipline. Marley's antics give John rich material for his newspaper column. As the Grogans mature and have children of their own, Marley continues to test everyone's patience by acting like the world's most impulsive dog.

At about 1 hour and 28 minutes into the film, John picks up a newspaper, the New York Times, and opens it to find an article written by his friend and coworker, Sabastian. The article is entitled "With U.S. Training, Colombia Melds War on Rebels and Drugs." The contents of this article are taken from an actual New York Times piece, with the same title, written by Larry Rohter, then South American bureau chief for The New York Times, in 1999. See more
