From the director of the Devil Wears Prada and based on the true story from New York Times best-selling novel from John Grogan, Marley & Me leaps onto Blu-ray and DVD March 31 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Featuring an A-list cast, Oscar®-nominee* Owen Wilson (Night at the Museum) and Emmy® winner Jennifer Aniston (The Break-Up) star in a hilarious tail about a family who learns important life lessons from their adorable, but badly-behaved dog.
Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson unleash laughs as well as tension as John and Jenny Grogan, a young couple contemplating the decision to have a baby. When they leave the snow of Michigan for the beaches of Miami, they decide to adopt a yellow Labrador retriever named Marley, in order to give them a taste of parenthood. However, things get ruff when the adorable 12-pound puppy transforms into a highly-strung, boisterous and uncontrollable 100-pound steamroller of unbridled energy that always finds trouble.
From flunking obedience school, chewing off dry wall, taking several bites out of the sofa, and chasing the UPS guy, Marley causes absolute chaos. Despite the mayhem he generates over the years, Marley sees the Grogans through the ups and downs of life and the countless challenges that come with it. The family soon discovers that Marley, “the world’s worst dog,” somehow brings out the best in them.
The comedy adventure features an ensemble supporting cast including Eric Dane (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Golden Globe®-winner Kathleen Turner (Best Actress, Prizzi’s Honor) and Oscar®-winner Alan Arkin (Best Supporting Actor, Little Miss Sunshine).
Featuring love and fun for the whole family, as well as several scenes of some pretty stressful domestic arguments, Marley & Me will be available in three DVD configurations including Fox’s first ever three-disc Blu-ray release.
