  • Summary: Marmaduke, the world's most lovable Great Dane, leaps from comic strip fame (appearing in 600 newspapers in over 20 countries) to big screen stardom. In this family comedy event, the "Duke" is living large in Orange County, California. But fitting in with his new four-legged friends – and a potential romantic interest -- isn't always easy for a super-sized teenage dog. (20th Century Fox) Expand

  1. Hey, it’s all good clean fun.
  2. 50
    Like "Sex and the City 2," Marmaduke features well-coifed bitches in heat, nonstop puns and its very own Mr. Big. Unlike "SATC 2," this one is harmless and, on occasion, mildly witty.
  3. 50
    The film’s most impressive feat may be bringing a cartoon character to life while turning actual humans into 2-D cutouts.
  4. 38
    A dull but harmless big-screen comedy aimed at the youngest movie goers.
  5. If Marmaduke achieves anything, it's that it makes this past spring's "Furry Vengeance" look like a masterpiece by comparison.
  6. 30
    Wilson's amiable vocal work keeps the predictability from becoming too grating.
  7. 12
    We’ve just been treated like a fire hydrant.

    Marmaduke is a good film for young and old. I really enjoyed it because of the cute dogs and funny storyline. Yes, it is not perfect, but it's good for what it's for and it is a big selling film. And you have gotta love Mazie and Marmaduke's cute relationship, haven't you? Expand

    This movie is an extremely predictable story about trying to find your place in high school, the difference? the teenagers are dogs, while it does have it's funny moments, it's not all that entertaining, only young children will enjoy this movie, and not all of them, know what your getting into before you watch.

    The voice cast impress, but the plot, characters and jokes are all recycled from better movies. Fun for young toddlers, innofensive but rather too derivative for an older audience. Expand

    I knew the movie was going to be terrible when the CGI looked like something I would do when I am extremely tired, drunk, or all of the above. And when I seen Marmaduke fart, I knew it was going to be awful. Expand
