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

Bosco and his gang constantly refer to themselves as pedigrees, and Marmaduke and his friends as "mutts." A mutt is a mongrel, a crossbred dog, but Marmaduke and his friends are all pure breeds. He is a Great Dane, and his friends are an Australian shepherd, a Dachshund and a Chinese crested - they are all just as much pedigrees as Bosco and his cronies. See more »
Who are you and what are you doing here?
Please don't hurt me!
You're a big boy. Good. The small ones ain't got enough meat on their bones.

Please don't hurt me! I'm sorry, I...
[he hears the dog in a coughing fit]
Are you okay?
I'm more than all right.

I just saw this movie for the first time. I came to it with an open mind willing to be entertained. I have to admit that it was a good family movie that it is paced well and tells a simple story. Not full of of slapstick joke, but it has a very refreshing predictable and simple plot and easy to follow. A great movie for discussing family values and what loyalty, love and friendship is all about and the dynamics of it.
Good family movie . . . don't listen to the basher and purist that movies have to be a perfect reflection of reality. This is a great movie in a traditional sense.
Sit and back and enjoy it . . .
