Marmaduke sinks to Beverly Hills Chihuahua levels of awfulness and only reaffirms that talking animals aren't funny -- they're boring.

Spectacularly sentimental, full of ridiculous computer-animated action, and makes sure its animals are a good deal less pallid than the humans on view.

There is only so much fun you can have with a talking dog and Marmaduke quickly exhausts the possibilities.

Better than Cats & Dogs, but praise hardly comes much lower.

Fans of the single-panel cartoon that has run in newspapers since the 1950s will find plenty to disappoint them in this live-action adaptation.

The incoherent, moralising script demeans a number of actors, including William H. Macy, Judy Greer and David Walliams, reduced by a kindly editor to an ineffective cameo.

Once upon a time, there was a promising young acting talent who went by the name of Owen Wilson.

Generally has its heart in the right place, there's some good slapstick and you have to admire the patience of filmmakers who are prepared to work with this many animals on one set.

Although comfortably under 90 minutes, Marmaduke is an epic chore to sit through.

With his eyes goggling and his gob smudging all over the place, he looks like a haunted painting.

While not quite as bad as it could have been, this is very much Hollywood-schmaltz-by-numbers.

You could do worse with young kids, and they'll romp along with Marmaduke's throwaway adventures, it's just there's much better stuff out there that will entertain viewers above the age of 10 too.
