When John Grogan buys his first puppy—a discounted golden lab—he thinks he’s getting a man’s best friend. Instead he discovers that Marley is the world’s worst dog! Check out Kidzworld’s review of Marley and Me.

Some Friendly Advice

John Grogan’s wife wants to start a family. But with their careers as reporters on the rise, John isn’t ready for a carload of kids. His best friend Sebastian (played by Eric Dane, better known as McSteamy on Grey’s Anatomy) advises him to get a dog. How hard can it be? You feed him, walk him, clean up after him, maybe throw the ball around until he’s tuckered out. Piece of cake, right? Wrong.


Beware of Discount Puppies

John takes Sebastian’s advice and surprises his wife with a golden Labrador puppy, which he purchases at a bargain price. John quickly learns that, like most marked down items, even discount puppies have something wrong with them. In no time, their cute and cuddly creature sends their lives into a whirlwind of chewed furniture, sleepless nights and endless races around the neighborhood.


The Tireless Dog

As a puppy, Marley never tires. He tears floors, steals jewelry and even runs through screen doors. And as he grows old, he still never tires. But John and his wife want to start a family. When their first of three babies arrives, they realize that being parents and the owners of a mischievous, unpredictable pet is more than they can handle.


The Bottom Line

Based on the bestselling memoir by John Grogan, Marley and Me is the perfect family comedy. The film explores the lives of a young married couple (played by Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston) who are trying to build a normal life together. But with a dog like Marley—truly the world’s worst dog—normal is out of the question. Marley will make you laugh and cry, and most of all he’ll make you appreciate your own pets. And if you don’t have a pet, this movie may make you grateful that your parents said no.


Marley and Me Movie Rating: 4
