Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston star in this family comedy based on the bestselling autobiographical book by John Grogan. Soon after they are married, John and Jenny Grogan (Wilson and Aniston) adopt an adorably naughty golden Labrador puppy. Despite his wayward behaviour, the pooch remains with them through the years as they raise children, move home, change jobs and experience the ups and downs of family life. Kathleen Turner, Eric Dane and Alan Arkin co-star.
When a dog wriggles his adorable rear end into a human's life, the human will never be the same. And both Marley, the dog, and Marley & Me, the movie, manage to endear themselves deeply despite a few wee flaws. Readers of the John Grogan bestseller already know the raffish charm of the incorrigible yellow lab puppy, Marley, adopted by Grogan and his wife because she's "never seen anything more adorable in my life." But Grogan's simple tale of love, in all its forms, shines on the big screen, thanks to deft comic turns by Jennifer Aniston--in top form here--and Owen Wilson. Their chemistry is utterly natural and believable as Marley's owners, as is their interaction with the very naughty but ultimately irresistible Marley. As Marley grows up, the film follows his escapades--flunking out, spectacularly, from puppy training at the hands of a wickedly funny Kathleen Turner. And as Marley grows up, John and Jenny build their life together and weather some tough emotional blows. Like My Dog Skip, which it resembles in its affection for its subject, Marley & Me is a tear-jerker, but in the sweetest, most lovely way--because it, and its four-legged star, have wriggled into our hearts. Good boy. --A.T. Hurley, Amazon.com

To make it into a film is lunacy!
Unless you are a film house knowing the amount of people that have and love dogs then you are basically a cynical movie mogul
The truth is if you are a dog lover you'll laugh at the shared experiences of an unrulely hound, you'll wince at the shared embarrasment of the public exhibitions of your lack of control you'll share the grief of the inevitable day when you have to say goodbye.
The beauty in this film is that it doesn't pretend to be anything else than the life story of a dog who happens to be bestowed upon two very unprepared owners and much as parents learn with their first child we all learn with our first dog.
This is a heartwarming and funny journey through someone else's hell to paradise to the heartrending days that all follow pet ownership.
As a BR disc its not a bad transfer, the sound is good.
Overall a good film if you love this subject, if you don't ... just avoid.
Anyway i love the book and the film just as much. How can they make you love a dog so much when you havent even met it? it is really funny and i really enjoyed it. i just didnt like it when Marley dies:'(
In most other respects, the book is pretty faithful to the book but Marley's sheer lunacy never really leaps out of the screen. Wrecked garages are seen, and shredded furniture, but it all seems rather dull in comparison to Grogan's quality writing in his book.
But, for me, the biggest flaw in the film is the casting of Aniston and Wilson. They were just too safe and obvious a choice. Of the two, Aniston does the better job - better than I expected - especially during the parts of their lives when Jen Grogan lost the first baby and then, later on, when post natal depression took over her life.
Owen Wilson seems to sleepwalk and mumble through most of the film. His performance is almost flat at times and, as is so often the case in his films, he only seems to be Owen Wilson. He seems to be in the sort of character and casting rut that trapped (and still traps??) Hugh Grant. Never once did I see Wilson as Grogan whereas Aniston did occasionally manage to break out of her overly-familiar 'Friends' mode. But on balance you don't ever really see real people who lived a real life with a real and really eccentric dog. You see two actors mostly being themselves.

As the film progresses you really experience the thrills and highlights of the couples life with the new addition to the family, and the experiences that they have to put up with.
The couple instantly fall in love with there lively, little labrador but soon experience the struggles with owning the mischievous animal; He won't respond to any command, messes up the house and causes utter chaos!
Although the couple can't seem to control their adorable, but naughty and neurotic dog, he does seem to teach them new life skills. The director, due to the well written storyline, is also able to manipulate the audience so that when they leave the theatre they have learnt new life skills too. He is able to create images within the viewers head and from these the audience are able to depict their own views and opinions about the characteristics and morals which are clearly illustrated throughout.
I would strongly advise you to view this movie as it is like a ride, it has highs and lows. The quirky comedy elements make you smile throughout and of course the sympathetic elements that bring tears to your eyes.
Overall this is a classic family film, suitable for any audience whatever time of year!
I entered unsure but i am so glad i saw it. This probably sounds soppy, but i don't think i have ever cried so much in a cinema before.
The story of John Grogan, his wife Jenny and their dog Marley is heartwarming, sweet and will really get the tears flowing. They experience the ways of life, ups and downs, plus 3 kids along the way. Marley is incredibly micheavous and crazy, he doesn't listen to anybody and does not pay attention, but that is how you end up loving so much.
It has quite a few funny moments, but still a mixture of drama, comedy and tragedy.
Don't let the other reviews be put off by this movie - Its a real family film and trust when i say every man, woman and child will have a tear their eye by the end.
A word of advice - get the tissues ready :)
