FRIENDS COME IN ALL SIZES.
When a Kansas family moves to Orange County, California, their Great Dane Marmaduke makes friends – and enemies – at a dog park. When Hollywood makes a movie out of an old TV show, book or comic strip for kids, far too often the results look like this – an utterly generic, overly cute flick that is painful to watch for anyone over the age of six. Owen Wilson brings charm to the voice of Marmaduke, but the talking animals look so-so effects-wise and the story is a drag.
