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

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.

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

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.

Kids deserve better. Heck, dogs deserve better.

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?
June 4, 2010
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.
