John Grogan: A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his.
At John's surprise 40th birthday party, Dave Barry, columnist for the Miami Herald since 1983, has an uncredited cameo. When Jen comes in with the cake, he's at the right side of the screen wearing a dark shirt and holding a drink. See more...

Continuity: Just before Marley jumps out the car, he has his two front legs outside the window. Camera cuts to a wide shot from the pavement and his front legs are in the car. Back inside the car, his legs are outside again. This is not to be confused with a similar mistake where he is walking with his back legs in/out the car.
Factual error: When Marley runs on the field during the Marlins' Bark at the Park night, the stadium scoreboard can be seen briefly behind him and John. "WAS" (Washington) is listed as one of the teams playing a game that night, despite the fact that Washington did not have a team before 2004 and the film takes place in the early 90s.
Continuity: When the dog-sitter pulls up in front of the Grogan's house in the exterior shot, the curtains at the window beside the stairs are pulled nearly closed, with only a narrow gap between. Next interior shot, as Marley barks at the window the curtains are pulled more apart, but when Marley pulls Debby outside as the Grogans leave, the curtains are as they were in the first exterior shot.
Continuity: When John brings Marley home the first time while Jen's away, the bag of Puppy Chow kibble falls. The bag's position on the floor (note tiles), the amount of kibble and John's hands all change between shots. The fallen kibble also changes between shots as the puppy lies on the floor devouring it.
