Ever had a pet dog? or wanted to have a pet dog? Then this movie is for you. Its a movie that travels less on the relationship between husband and wife but more on the relationship the dog shares with every member of the family.
This movie is based on a true story. It starts out with the relationship between Owen Wilson(John) and Jennifer Aniston(Jennifer). A sweet relationship but where Jennifer has planned out the steps of her life. John is worried that after a marriage and job Jennifer might have planned a kid. Since John was not ready for one, his friend advises him to buy a puppy who will keep Jennifer company. That is how John decides to get a pet. This pup they adopt is one hell of a mischievous fellow. He eats anything from a phone to an answering machine and is always jumping around. The way John and Jennifer handle him and train him is the best part of the movie. The fun they have together, the michief, the troubled times they pass through.everything is very memorable and well projected. And all this while John, who is a reporter writes a column which portrays all his experiences with his dog Marley. All these columns were later published as a book after they lose Marley. The burial ceremony they have for Marley was very touching.
All in all the movie is very heart touching and the performances are real like. Marley is the start with all his unpredictable mischief. Enjoy the ups and downs of the life of a dog. A must watch! Recommended!
