Anyway, a big stupid and clumsy dog sounded like a sure bet for a kids movie so when Marmaduke came out as a film we got it on Blu-ray and just watched it this evening.
In short, the kids loved it and me and my wife found it quite enjoyable. Sure the plot was nothing to write home about, and the jokes mostly fall-on-your-arse-slapstick ones. But what the heck, it’s a kids movie for Christ sake!
Of course it was panned by the so-called “critics” who yet again show that they generally fail to put themselves in the seats of the intended audience.
