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

Phil is driving along the coast with Marmaduke in the back seat. The shoulder belt section of a three-point seat belt is clearly around Phil's shoulder and chest. When Marmaduke complains of a bee, Phil turns to comfort him and the belt is gone. It reappears in the following shot. See more »

Horrible film, okay for the kiddies but torture for adults
Some guy was giving out tickets to a test screening of this abomination to mankind, and I decided "Eh, free film and I always liked Marmaduke". Well, I was wrong. This film is a physically painful experience. This film consists of the BAD jokes from Marley & Me. The difference is, Marley & Me was touching and funny and cute. This is horrible. No more words to fit this. HORRIBLE! The horrible scene that sticks out the most is the dancing dogs sequence that features a ton of dogs dancing around to music in a park. I just saw a preview for this film on TV, and the song "Tik Tok" was playing during it. Tik Tok, during a dog film commercial. The writing is horrible, the acting is horrible, the effects are horrible, the jokes are horrible, the music is horrible, EVERY SINGLE LAST THING IS HORRIBLE!
I did not apply a rating to this review as 1 is too good for this.
EDIT: Under pressure from somebody, I watched the film in theaters to see if anything was different. I was wrong... IT WAS EVEN WORSE!
