What the story?
Uprooted from his native Kansas to California's legendary OC, the oversized and accident prone Marmaduke is an awkward newcomer in a glitzy world filled with doggy high school archetypes. Coached by feline stepbrother Carlos, the Great Dane overcomes bullies and his native clumsiness to become the top dog at the local park.
Three Good Reasons
- It's got the best parts of Marley and Me Owen Wilson and doggie slapstick without the downer ending.
- With their gangly legs, sad-sack visages and soft eyes, Great Danes are natural comedians easily outdoing certain SoCal Chihuahuas in the humor department.
- Big name talent abounds, with Owen Wilson, George Lopez, Kiefer Sutherland, and Fergie joining to bring CGI speech to the wisecracking canine crowd.
The Winslow family may have their hands full with Marmaduke, but they should be thankful they aren't looking after "Giant George". According to the Guinness World Records, George is the tallest dog in the world, weighing an astounding 245 pounds and measuring seven feet and three inches from head to tail. His owners say they go through over 100 pounds of dog food a month to feed the Great Dane.
