  1. Hey, it’s all good clean fun.

    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.

    Owen Wilson plays a long-snouted hairy beast with an expressionless face. But in THIS movie he plays a dog instead.
