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.Written by

For shots in which the dog puts its rear end up, as if ready to play or pounce, this was a cued "bow" behavior. For shots in which the dog drinks out of the toilet, a dog bowl was placed inside the toilet, and the dog was cued to drink from it. For shots in which Marley is in the bathtub, the tub was lined with traction grip mats for safe footing. For shots in which Marley is near the fireplace, trainers kept the dog a safe distance from the fire and felt its fur to make sure it was not too warm. 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.

You know, minutes before going to the theater to see this movie I was getting dressed and my beagle was jumping all over me, biting me and I kept pushing her away. So I go to this movie and I just couldn't help it. I cried my eyes out. How true it is, that a dog doesn't care who you are, if you're rich or poor, if you're tall or short. He's always there for you. No matter what. And no matter how big the mess is, you'll still love him. It was great to see Owen Wilson playing a dramatic role. He did great in Behind Enemy Lines and he should play more roles like this. Jennifer Aniston was great too, she really delivered. Good film, funny and entertaining, excellent for the family. Don't forget to take your dog.
