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.

The movie works in a way that toddlers and early primary schoolers will definitely dig.

A low-impact kid's comedy, "Marmaduke" may have little in common with the comic strip upon which it's based but remains a perfectly viable flick for dog-loving families.

In a genre so choked with cynical films, this one was made with enough skill and heart to make its emotional payoffs believable and welcome.

It's a lot of twists and turns for very little reward. But bottom line, will the kids like it? Quite possibly.

If Hollywood insists on cranking out movies about dogs that won't stop yapping at us, I hope they'll all be as well-made as Marmaduke.

A sprightly family comedy about a frisky Great Dane and his human companion who both learn new things during a major transition in their lives.

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.

Dogs may be for life but the memory of this film will last about 20 seconds.
