Laugh, cry or cringe at the trailer for Marmaduke

03.25.2010

For those who haven't looked at a newspaper since the 1950s, MARMADUKE is a comic strip about a Great Dane and all the hypothetical comedy that comes from owning such a monstrous dog.

And now it's a live-action (CG-assisted) movie, with Owen Wilson voicing the mischievous hound and a few random humans like William H. Macy and Judy Greer thrown in for abuse. Other animals are voiced by George Lopez, Steve Coogan and Kiefer Sutherland, who isn't exactly someone you'd normally associate with family fare.

Trailer below.

Extra Tidbit: I wonder how long before the Sutherland dog says "Dammit!" and mispronounces the word "nuclear"...

Anyone remember We're Back the Dinosaur Movie? That was a piece of garbage, but I loved it as a kid. Kids will love this, heck even I was slightly amused at William H Macy's pratfalls.

Since fucking when is it ok to let utter stupidity and poor filmmaking slide because "it's aimed at children"? NEVER, that's when!

"Curious George", the 2-D, Will Ferrel voiced kids movie from a few years ago, was very squarely aimed at 3-8 year olds, but it was excellent. Looked vibrant, was fun, the music really fit. It was a good movie that just happened to be for kids.

The monstrosity that we here discusses looks to the lowest level of comedy, and seemingly has not a single bit of

"Curious George", the 2-D, Will Ferrel voiced kids movie from a few years ago, was very squarely aimed at 3-8 year olds, but it was excellent. Looked vibrant, was fun, the music really fit. It was a good movie that just happened to be for kids.

The monstrosity that we here discusses looks to the lowest level of comedy, and seemingly has not a single bit of smarts to itself. And you are going to be, "Well, it's ok, let your children be idiots!" You guys are idiots for thinking like that.

America, as a society, has been getting dumber and dumber, and in part, it's thanks to crap like this, but mostly, it's thanks to fools like you two. By allowing this stuff to pass, simply because of whom it's aimed for, you are giving a greenlight for stupidity to trump intelligence, and for that, there's no repenting. Enjoy the dumbing down of our world, and in 2020, when the high school graduates can't even count to thirty, remember, it's because, you allowed them to see things, that despite how dumb they obviously were, you were ok with that, because they were kids.

If you have kids, and dear god, I pray you don't, get them a book, or have them watch a Pixar movie again, do not take them to see this, or the new Shrek when that hits, as you shall only be contributing to their idiocy.

With all respect, grow a pair, and remember, good films are good, despite whom they are aimed at, and stupidity should not be given leniency simply because kids don't know better. That's why, we as the adults who do know better, need to steer them in the right direction, the smart one, and not let Hollywood get away with this filth.

Once you get some brain functions back, and start thinking on a rational level, reply if you desire, but if you still maintain, that despite how stupid this is, that just because it's for kids it's ok, please go get a vasectomy, as to help the overpopulation and help decrease the increasing number of fools in the world.

Crap. I now know what I'll be dragged to in June. Sometimes I wish my kids were raised Amish, so they wouldn't see the commercials for this crap. I still have nightmares about Beverly Hills Chihuahua...

Nice

Its cool they are making a Marmaduke movie, but it looks almost too much like other animal live-action movies before it.

In fairness...

The "Frisbee" line and the "he speaks Gopher" bit made me chuckle.

I hate myself for it

After movies like this and Beverly Hills Chihuahua coming out, Garfield is starting to look like a masterpiece.

BWARRRRFFF

Just watched the trailer. My thoughts? I never knew my stomach could throw up that much puke. I saw things I ate in my primary school days. Heck, I even saw food from my previous lives. Small dinosaurs were rolling around in it wondering what woke them from their eternal slumber.

In summary. Not really a fan of this.

Honestly...

I enjoyed it. Everything looked fun and I was entertained EXCEPT for Fergie being casted and the dance sequence at the end. That was terrible.

But you guys act as if this is being targeted at YOU, which I'm assuming most people on this site are adults, presumably over the age of 20. So dont judge it based on if you'd see it, cuz its a CHILD'S film. And it didnt look bad for a kids film.

Hit the red thumb.....its fine

I don't even understand why JoBlo insists on covering this, because its readers are clearly not the target audience. Why weren't there consist updates about Diary of a Wimpy Kid? Is Owen Wilson on JoBlo's Nifty Fifty so everything he does has to be reported on or something?

Pretty much what I would expect from a Marmaduke movie, the stupidity of Beethoven with the annoyingness of Beverly Hills Chihuahua. At least its not in 3D, yet...
