Mr. Bean wins a trip to Cannes where he unwittingly separates a young boy from his father and must help the two come back together. On the way he discovers France, bicycling, and true love, among other things.
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. 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 its 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
Hmmm. New dog in the neighbourood goes to the local dog friendly park (high school). There he becomes instant friends with the 'mutts' (geeks). His sights are caught by the sheer beauty of another dog (a member of the 'purebreds', or 'cheerleader') who is going out with the top dog of the 'purebreds' (jocks). Of course, a lady dog in the 'mutts' secretly likes him. To get in with the 'purebreds', Marmaduke stages a bogus cat fight with the family cat and disowns the 'mutts', crushing his crush's heart (awww..). When the fam is away (yes, somewhere amongst the fray the two-leggers manage a cameo appearance) Marmaduke holds a frat party whereby his bogus cat fight is exposed. Then the purebreds go back to their hangout and the mutts want nothing to do with him.
Do I really need to tell you how it ends?
But, don't take my word for it. When I started the movie there were 3 adults and 2 children watching. By the end of the movie the 2 children had gotten bored and and went off to play. Seriously, don't waste your time or your money. Even the kids know the game is up for this genre.
