Storyline

Marmaduke, the world's most lovable Great Dane, leaps from comic strip fame (appearing in six hundred newspapers in over twenty countries) to big screen stardom in this family comedy event. A suburban family moves to a new neighborhood in Orange County, California with their large, yet lovable Great Dane, who has a tendency to wreak havoc in his own oblivious way. But it's not all living large for the Duke, who finds that fitting in with his new four-legged friends, and a potential romantic interest, isn't always easy for a super-sized teenage dog. Owen Wilson gives the beloved Great Dane his voice in the film, which also features the voices of Fergie, George Lopez, Emma Stone, and Kiefer Sutherland. Written by jck movies

Surprisingly better than expected
19 March 2011 | by hung_fao_tweezeSee all my reviews

In short, the CGI talking dogs was done extremely well, even carrying on through nuances found in most dogs - head-tilts, twitches, etc. Typical past CGI attempts practically demanded that the subject remain still while the effects are applied. So, I have to give very high marks to the special effects. The Marmaduke character is very likable as are most of the ensemble here. The story is predictable but I had a fairly good time and even found the humor to be occasionally very funny from a dog-oriented viewpoint. I truly didn't expect much from this but ended up liking it quite a bit. Having said that I will say that I enjoyed it once and will probably never watch it again, but I believe kids 7 to 11 would enjoy it quite a bit.
