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.

Did You Know?
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
When John and Jenny first go to look at puppies, the breeder tells them that they'll have to wait three weeks until the puppies are weaned. This would put the pups at about four or five weeks old, when they should weigh about 4 pounds. However, the size of the puppies used in the scene puts them closer to 10 or 12 weeks of age. See more
