YMMV: Marley and Me

First Movie

  • Spiritual Successor: To Old Yeller.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • It's more tearjerker-y if you've had dogs. Especially if you tend to project emotions onto them.
    • Even more especially if you've had a dog put down or die in some way.
  • The Other Darrin : Multiple dogs play the part of Marley, which is common in Hollywood because often each dog performs a different trick (running, chewing, barking, etc.), and because Marley is shown as a puppy, an adult, and a senior dog. However, they don't even TRY to disguise the very different looking Retrievers who play Marley, resulting in a jarringly different appearance between the adult and senior dogs.
  • The Woobie: Marley becomes one in his later years
