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

Come on, I feel like we're forgetting something.
We have everything, but the furniture and the dog.
Look at him, he's just sitting there.
You think he'll be okay here alone?
I think he'll be fine. He's got food and water, and I'm having Laura from down the street look in on him.
Right, right. I mean what's the worst that could happen? He has a party? Invite his girlfriend over?
[after they left the house]
Yes and... yes!

Not as bad as 2.4
I seriously think some users here on IMDb are being undeservedly harsh on this movie. What the motives are, I'm not too sure, but I can recommend some of them to watch the documentary Heckler. Now, back to subject, sorry for digressing, I've seen worse movies get higher ratings at IMDb. Now, I'm not really a fan of Owen Wilson or movies that have animals talking, but I feel this movie is at least a high 4 to low 5, in keeping in line with other movies reviewed on IMDb. I voted 5. I watched 2 movies - namely, Thomas the cool mule and that Aussie Ted movie that I would rank at 2 - 3 each, but not this movie. This movie is not brilliant or the best kiddies movie out there, but it's good, clean family fun. That's all I expected when I took my kid to watch this. And he enjoyed it. Unlike those other 2 movies I mentioned earlier.
