Truly a milquetoast Scooby Snack for pet-friendly families who thrill to computer-generated mouth movements on real-life four-legged critters.

I had a Scooby-Doo nightmare flashback.

This movie is one big dog.

Scripters Tim Rasmussen and Vince Di Meglio have cobbled together a plot from bits and pieces of other family-friendly pics.

Brad Anderson's long-running saga of the melty-looking Winslow family and the gangling, interfering Great Dane that should've been put to sleep ages ago gets a film treatment.

This is another opus to take that small, well-trodden step from the funny pages to the big screen. But we're in live-action territory here, meaning that real people actors compete for camera time with real dog actors.

Bland sitcom romp based on the long-running comic strip features wisecracking canines in a beach-set family story.

The dogs are cute -- I'll say that for it.

Like most movies aimed at the kindergarten set, Marmaduke balances its giggly, gross-out gags with a stern moral agenda.

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

If the phrase ''From the producer of Garfield'' doesn't scare you off, then step right up.

Lines like "Get your bark on," "Who let the dogs out?" and "Cowabarka" abound. Many of the jokes revolve around excretory functions.

I'm envisioning a sequel that joins together two towering franchises, only with an R rating for excessive gore: Marmaduke Versus Alvin and the Chipmunks, anyone?

Its only redeeming values are an insane dog-surfing competition that feels like a weird dream you may have once had, and a mangy street mongrel whose slobbery lips give perhaps the finest Sam Elliott performance ever. The rest is pure kibble.

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

As talking-dog movies go, Marmaduke makes Beverly Hills Chihuahua look like Up.

When one of the last sounds you hear in a work of family entertainment is a Great Dane passing gas, there's only one conclusion to be drawn. The movie hates your family.

Kids love dogs and fart jokes. The goods are being delivered to the target audience. All others should look away.

The flea-bitten screenplay seems to have been plucked from the wastebasket of recycled ideas and rewritten by someone whose third language was English -- after Danish and Dog.

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