Transcript of Marley & Me

Marley & Me is a 2008 American comedy-drama film about the titular dog, Marley. It was directed by David Frankel and the screenplay by Scott Frank and Don Roos is based on the memoir of the same name by John Grogan. Introduction Directed by: Theatrical release poster Synopsis Personal Opinion The film opened on 3,480 screens in the US and Canada on December 25, 2008. It grossed $14.75 million on its first day of release, setting the record for the best Christmas Day box office take ever by surpassing the previous high of $10.2 million achieved by Ali in 2001

Because the film covers 14 years in the life of the dog, 22 different yellow labradors played the part of Marley

The film was shot on location in Florida's West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Miami and Dolphin Stadium, in addition to Philadelphia and West Chester in Pennsylvania. The Irish honeymoon scenes were shot in and around Ballynahinch Castle, Connemara, County Galway, Ireland. Interesting Facts David Frankel Produced by: Gil Netter and Karen Rosenfelt Screenplay by: Scott Frank and Don Roos Based on: Marley & Me by John Grogan Starring: Owen Wilson Jennifer Aniston Eric Dane Kathleen Turner Alan Arkin John and Jenny are happily married journalists who, like a lot of young couples, decide to start their family off with a dog. But Marley, named after Bob, is not your average yellow Labrador. No, Marley is actually a four-legged eating machine. Sofas are a favorite treat of his, but he doesn't mind snacking on drywall when push comes to shove. Marley's hell on paws, but John and Jenny love him. John and Jenny aren't big into training and by the time they turn to a professional for help Marley's pretty much past the point where he wants to follow any rules. Kicked out of obedience school, Marley continues to misbehave and pretty much control the household. As Marley grows, so does the Grogan family. Over the years as John and Jenny's brood expands with the addition of three kids, Marley settles into the big brother role – with only occasional streaks of wildness. And as Marley matures into a senior citizen dog the Grogans learn important life lessons from their furry family member. Movie Trailer In this film you can see the quality of the sound, lighting and generally a set of details that make the excellence of this movie.
The scenery at any time alter the nature theme of the story, showing landscapes and internal environments for the viewer becomes the background by being aware of the plot of the story
Demonstrates the acting chops of its protagonists, reflects the patience and tenacity of the film crew to take life one frame at a be insignificant for some and for others is very important as the dog. Since in this same tape shows the agility and in many cases has this pet adrenaline normally, also how difficult it can be to ¨natural ¨ scenes of innocent mischief of a dog.
In my opinion, apart from being the love story of a couple who grows forming a family teaches us that love is the foundation of any relationship and maintain it is difficult but not impossible if we persevere in our goals, such as John Grogan in the time you have to write attention-grabbing issues readers choose to write about your headache and faithful friend Marley.
In addition to this film, I reflected that the dogs teach us the greatest lesson of unconditional love, because our pets will always be our faithful friends and companions. In them you can get love, affection, companionship. ¨A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water log stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if your rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he'll give you his..¨
