My Thoughts:
I picked this one up used at a convience store a couple months ago. I picked it up cheap.. less then a dollar. Other then the Olsen Twins... this one also has Jared Padalecki (Supernatural). To be honest with you... when I picked this one up I really wasn't expecting too much from it. Then when I watched the trailer I saw some potential... but still didn't expect too much. After watching it I can say it had it's moments... but for the most part I have to say below average. Kinda the Olsen Twin's answer to Ferris Bueller's Day Off. As little as I paid for it... I really can't complain. But it isn't one I could recommend. Best I would say is if you are bored one day and can see this one for free.... well then there is worse things you can watch. But there is also plenty of better things that could be watched as well.

Marmaduke, a review by Dragonfire


I wasn't really wanting to see this one, but my mom wanted to see it, so I went with her.  She enjoyed it more than I did.

Most of the movie deals with Marmaduke - a large Great Dane - adjusting after his owners move to California.  The dog park he spends time at is compared to high school and there are cliques of dogs.  He gets bullied by the dog leading the pedigree group and then he tries to act different to fit in more.  When he manages to do that, he turns his back on the dogs who accepted him from the beginning.  There are also issues with the family since Phil is so wrapped up in his new job that he basically ignores everyone. 

This is a movie with real people and real dogs.  Effects are used to make the animals look like they are talking.  The mouth movements sort of work, though they look off at times.  The animals talk to each other and Marmaduke even addresses the audience, but the human characters can't hear the animals talk.  I have seen the Marmaduke comic strip, but not that often, so really all I know is that it is about a large dog.  The plot for the movie is very simple and predictable.  A character attempting to fit in at a new place is nothing new, though it is slightly different to apply that to dogs. 

Most of the attempts at humor fail to be funny.  There fart jokes and some other gross humor that isn't funny.  A few silly moments with the dogs are slightly funny and that is about it.  Too often, Marmaduke will do something wrong and then Phil or Debbie will stand there and say his name is an exasperated way and that is supposed to be funny.  It isn't.  At all.  It gets really old, really quick.  Some of the dogs end up in danger and that bugs me.  I know it is just a movie, but I don't find animals in danger entertaining.  Also, Phil comes across as a huge jerk.  His way of dealing with Marmaduke is just to yell at him instead of actually trying to train him for the longest time.  He only puts the effort out for that when it impacts his job.  His treatment of Marmaduke really annoys me and I can't stand the character.

None of the characters are that interesting, though some of the dogs are cute.  The voices for the animals are fine, though Owen Wilson's voice really doesn't fit such a large dog. 

There is very little that is entertaining in this movie and I have no plans to watch it every again.



I did post a longer review at Epinions a few days ago.

And while their parents tro to keep everybody on the straight and narrow, the gang keeps on truckin' with full speed hilarity.

Laura Prepon as Donna Pinciotti
Ashton Kutcher as Michael Kelso
Danny Masterson as Steven Hyde
Mila Kunis as Jackie Burkhart
Wilmer Valderrama as Fez
Debra Jo Rupp as Kitty Forman

Extras:
  • Featurettes
  • Interviews


My Thoughts:
I just finished season 2... I went through this season in no time. And am enjoying the series even more. Tommy Chong (Cheech & Chong) was in several episodes of this season. He made a pretty good addition to the cast. Once again I can't decide which episode would be my favorite of the season as they were all good... but if pushed I would probably go with the 2 part episode where Donna and Eric loose their virginity. I would love to go straight to season 3... but don't have it yet. Hopefully I will be able to get it before too long.


My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
