Trivia / Marley and Me

Go To

    Later, during a break, my smart-ass wife couldn’t resist sidling up to Jen Aniston as she sat in her Jenny chair and deadpanning, “Excuse me, but I believe you’re in my seat.” Fortunately, the actress has a good sense of humor.
  • 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.
