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

Even by talking-critter comedy standards, Marmaduke lacks mirth and imagination.

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.

The moment I saw Marmaduke's big drooling lips moving, I knew I was in trouble.

The first of many instances of doggy-doo humor comes about three minutes into the film.

I had a Scooby-Doo nightmare flashback.

For any adult, to watch Marmaduke is to stare into the gaping, digitally-enhanced maw of fluffy mediocrity for a ninety-minute stretch of valuable lifetime.

Well, at least the dogs are cute.

Biting the neighbors' tires for 90 minutes seems like a far better use of time. Like an overpopulated puppy park on a Fourth of July weekend, this shaggy dog story stinks to high heaven.

This threadbare film mostly feels like a way to keep out-of-school kids occupied during summertime.

There is a special place in hell for filmmakers who deliberately force audiences to endure a worse dog movie than both Marley & Me and The Shaggy Dog remake put together.

Somewhat amusing, but often cringe-worthy, cheesy, silly and, worst of all, fails to engage kids and adults simultaneously.

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

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

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.

Basically a Saved By the Bell episode performed by talking animals.

Marmaduke was never meant to star in his own movie; trying to strap a story to his back ends up a clunky and often lame affair.

A lame, worn-out story wrapped in a pelt of fluffy dog fur.
