Movie Review

Phil, Dottie, Barbara and Billy love their Marmaduke. At the same time, the clumsy and playful dog regularly drives the Winslow family insane and has a paw for causing chaos. Guy Hilton’s attention is drawn when he makes it into the newspaper with a particularly devastating performance. He has already achieved everything that can be achieved as a dog trainer and is therefore looking for a new challenge. Marmaduke, whom he wants to prepare for a big dog competition, is just what he needs. And Phil is also very enthusiastic about the idea – not least because there is a million dollars for the winner …

There aren’t too few famous cartoon dogs. Whether Snoopy, Idefix or Struppi, they have all become an integral part of our pop culture and decades later they still delight children and the young at heart. Marmaduke is certainly not quite on the level of the colleagues mentioned above. But credit where credit is due: The series conceived by Brad Anderson ran from 1954 to 2015. You have to do that first. In this respect, it is not surprising that this popularity should also be used in film form. The results so far have been pathetic. 2010 ‘s live-action variant was not a huge hit at the box office and was panned by critics. The animation versiondidn’t even make it to theaters, instead being dumped on Netflix after countless postponements.

As a comic book character, Marmaduke was very long-lived. The film version, on the other hand, is so outdated that it should have been put to sleep altogether: The story isn’t good, the visuals are cheap, and so is the humor.
