Note: The following text may contain spoilers

MARLEY & ME is US drama about a couple's life with their pet dog, who follows their experiences as they build a family and their careers.

Violence

In one sequence, a neighbour is revealed to have been stabbed by an assailant because she screamed for help after he threatened her. She is seen clutching her side over a dark stain on her T-shirt, as she is comforted while waiting for the police arrive.

Sex

Sex references are mild and infrequent as characters euphemistically describe the mechanics of having a baby.

Language

Mild bad language is infrequent, and includes 'crap', 'jerk' and 'son of a bitch'.

There are some emotional scenes as the family confront the mortality of their pet.
