When the Grogan family goes on vacation, Marley is left with Bodi, their 12-year-old nephew and his no nonsense grandfather, Fred. To prove he is able to take care of a dog of his own, Bodi decides to train a team made up of Marley and two other neighborhood puppies for the local Puppy Agility Challenge. Little does Bodi know that the world's worst puppy may just be his secret weapons.

Marley sequel better for kids but less memorable than first.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this direct-to-video sequel to Marley & Me isn't anywhere near as emotionally wrenching as that family drama was. Also unlike the original movie, this one features a talking Marley and has a central teen character (a temporary dog sitter). A sweet grandfather-grandson relationship is depicted, and the importance of being a responsible pet owner is emphasized. The movie is appropriate for kindergarteners and up, but there are a few insulting words ("stupid," "lazy butt") and several dog-fart jokes.
