OVERVIEW: Leaping out of the doghouse and onto the big screen, the hilarious hijinks of the good-natured Great Dane Marmaduke barks its way onto Blu-ray Disc/DVD Combo Pack and as a DVD Single Disc August 31 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. An all-star cast of voice talents, including Owen Wilson (Marley & Me), George Lopez (“The George Lopez Show”), Kiefer Sutherland (“24”), and Fergie (The Black Eyed Peas) lend their voices to the dog-out-of-water tale about what happens when the lovable oversized pooch is unleashed in an idyllic seaside town.
When Marmaduke (Wilson) moves to a new neighborhood with his family, the super-sized teenage dog soon discovers he just doesn’t fit in—literally! Marmaduke can’t help being a one-dog wrecking crew, causing fur-flying chaos wherever he roams. But, with the help of his friend, Carlos the Cat (Lopez), Marmaduke may just get out of the doghouse, fall in love, and surf off into the sunset.
DVD: The film is presented in widescreen with a
2.35:1 aspect ration preserving its theatrical
format. Looks clean, images without any types of color
saturation. 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has done pretty
good job with this transfer. Not only the picture looks
good in this version of the film, also the sound it is
good. A 5.1 Dolby Digital French and Spanish
sound, providing a nice complement to the picture. It also includes
English and Spanish subtitles
In terms of special features
the DVD includes the bonus materials include director Edgerton’s award-winning short film Spider, dubbed “a sharp, sick tour de force” by The New York Time’s A.O. Scott.
Overall Marmaduke fails to impress, as it follows the same pattern of previous talking dogs films. The film can be a good watch for the little ones, giving then enough laughs and entertainment, however grown ups will find Marmaduke very slow and more of the same.
