** Have them actually researching about the Labradors breed before adopting Marley.
** Turn the movie into a FirstPetStory, thus makiing John and Jenny's frustration more sympathetic.
** Remove the more sadistic glee of John towards Marley.
** Completely alter the ending by [[spoiler:adding a funeral scene and removing of John leaves Marley at the vet's office and packs the family into the van for a Disney vacation]].

* LikeFatherLikeSon: In the book, it's pretty clear that Marley inherited most of his personality from Sammy, his sire.

The story of newspaper columnist John Grogan, his wife and children and their manic Labrador Retriever Marley, the 2005 book became an unexpected success particularly amongst pet owners. It was made into TheFilmOfTheBook in 2008, with Owen Wilson and Creator/JenniferAniston as the protagonists.

->''A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A waterlogged stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he'll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?''

* FirstPetStory

to:

* FirstPetStoryFirstPetStory: Played straight in the movie. In the book, however, Marley isn't John's first pet (that would be Shaun, who actually has the book's first chapter entirely devoted to him), nor Jenny's for that matter.



* {{Keet}}: Marley

to:

* {{Keet}}: MarleyMarley is a dog version, especially when he's a puppy and actually fits the "small yet full of energy" description. Though when he gets huge he still has all the trope's characteristics except the small size.



* TheNineties: The film's early scenes are set in the early '90s - note the outdated technology and the reference to Desert Storm
