Family-Faith Film Review – Marmaduke
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
Marmaduke—Small children might like this comedy based on the titular comic-strip Great Dane (voiced by Owen Wilson), but adults may find it about as charming as a bucket of doggie drool. Director Tom Dey has constructed a slapstick-laden story with the canine hero as a gangly and quite talky adolescent attempting to fit in with cliques at a dog park that represents high school, while a parallel plot has his human family (led by Lee Pace) attempting the same transformation after they move from Kansas to Southern California. Some mild scatological humor. A-I — general patronage. (PG) 2010
