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

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.
Just in time for some end of summer fun, Marmaduke Blu-Ray Combo Pack (a two-disc set of Blu-ray and DVD versions of the film) comes packed with laugh-out-loud special features including more surf dog fun in Cowabarka!, canine casting, the Marmaduke Mahem gag reel, deleted scenes, and more.The Marmaduke standard DVD, including deleted scenes and featurettes, is also available.
I had the pleasure of viewing this movie on Blu-Ray with my husband and daughter courtesy of Fox Connect. This movie could not have showed up at a better time. Was delivered just days before our scheduled “Family Fun Night”, a night we cook together, play board or card games, and then pile in to the living room to watch a family movie together.
I have to admit, we were a bit worried that this movie was going to be poorly made and geared for younger children only. Wow, were we happily surprised. I think we laughed out loud just as much, if not more than she did. I know there were moments we had to hit rewind due to us all three laughing so hard we missed what was said next.
Marmaduke is a great family film. A good solid storyline, with plenty of laugh out loud scenes, and an outstanding cast. My husband and I tend to watch just about anything staring William H. Macy, add George Lopez, and Owen Wilson, and you really can’t go wrong.
As parents we really enjoyed that this movie has something for everyone without any offensive language or under jokes. Unless you consider Marmaduke passing gas a couple of times offensive. Having a beautiful Basset Hound in our family that can really clear a room, we thought it was hilarious.
If you are looking for a well made, fun, family movie, with heart, this one is for you. This movie is also a great find for any movie loving family on your Christmas list. Remember the holidays will be here before you know it!
