Poster for Marley & Me

Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston and Alan Arkin star in the adaptation of the New York Times best selling autobiographical book by American journalist John Grogan (played by Wilson). It's about The Grogan family - who wrestle with life's ups and downs while also trying to tame their loveable but disobedient labrador, Marley. Director David Frankel's previous efforts include The Devil Wears Prada. Screenwriters Scott Frank and Don Roos are industry veterans, with Frank a former Oscar nominee.

Bland, obsequious adaptation of John Grogan’s best-selling memoir.

Marley & Me gets so much surprisingly right. It may be designed to reach a broad audience, but it doesn't pander.

This perky, episodic film is as broad and obvious as it could be, but delivers on its own terms thanks to sparky chemistry between its sunny blond stars, Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston, and the unabashed emotion-milking of the final reel.

An imperfect, messy and sometimes trying film that has moments of genuine sweetness and humor sprinkled in between the saccharine and the sadness.

A warm and fuzzy family movie, but you do wish that at least once someone would upstage the dog.

Not many actors could do justice to the vanilla story presented by Grogan and screenwriters Scott Frank and Don Roos, but Wilson and Aniston – two of the blandest, most uninteresting actors working today – are just the actors to pull it off.
