Trivia

Beach scenes apparently set in Briny Breezes, an area nicknamed "Dog Beach" by locals for its friendliness to the canine set. Palm Beach County Commissioners banned dogs from the beach, for reasons self-evident in the last beach scene.

Dave Barry:  During the surprise birthday party scene you can see the former Miami Herald columnist standing on the right of the shot smiling.

Goofs
When the main characters are walking down the beach and are shown from in front, you can see the stirred up sand from dragging the camera along. When the shot changes to behind, this is not visible, nor when they are shown from the side. These three viewpoints keep rotating, making the trail appear and disappear repeatedly.
Share this
In the scene where the kids get off the school bus, at first you see two cars in the driveway, but in the next shot looking at the house there is only one car.

About two-thirds of the way through the picture, West Palm Beach Police show up at the beach, responding to the dog pooping in the water. This beach is in the jurisdiction of the Palm Beach Police, not the West PB Police.

Quotes
John Grogan: A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his.

Q
How does the movie end?
A
Marley's stomach twists for the second time. This time, the vet can't save him, and it becomes necessary to put Marley to sleep. John stays at his side the whole time until Marley's eyes close. The Grogans bury him in the yard, with each family member giving him a picture, letter, or remembrance of their love for him. The movie ends with John looking back on his memories and realizing what Marley taught him. A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor. If you give him your heart, he'll give you his.
Q
Is 'Marley and Me' based on a book?
A
Yes. Marley & Me is an autobiographical book by American journalist, John Grogan. The story revolves around Grogan and his family's life during the 13 years that they lived with their Labrador retriever, Marley, and the relationships and lessons from this period.
Q
What is the music in the teaser trailer?
A
The music in the teaser trailer for the movie Marley & Me is the main theme (title music) from "Chariots of Fire" by Vangelis.
