Marley & Me

Revealing mistake: When John picks his wife up at the airport, it's raining. But look at the people around outside, they are in T-shirts, in the sun, and not getting wet. Obviously the rain is being sprayed on the car.


Continuity mistake: When John, Jenny and Marley are walking on the beach and John asks what's next, they are by some washed up debris. Camera cuts and they are no longer near it. (00:31:00)

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.
