Marmaduke – Movie Review
A suburban family moves to a new neighborhood with their large yet lovable Great Dane, who has a tendency to wreak havoc in his own oblivious way.
Marmaduke is based on the comic strip, called Marmaduke unsurprisingly, about a Great Dane who can talk. This one is voiced by Owen Wilson, who is of course, adorable and cute. The idea of this sort of upset my stomach, but the reality of it was really kind of fun. Your kids will love it. There are all sorts of little tinkle and fart jokes. The story is absolutely prosaic. It’s one of those where a man who moves his family for a better job , neglects his family leaving the dog to be the only one to bring the family together. Yawn. But the antics are fun. Make sure you stay for the closing credits. A Great Dane voiced by Owen Wilson, what’s not to love? Two stars if you’re older than ten, three if you’re under.
