You may recall that when we first moved to Vancouver, we stumbled across the filming of the Marmaduke movie. Well, it’s coming out soon. If the movie were what the first 20 second of this trailer makes it appear to be — an adaptation of hundreds upon hundreds of one-panel cartoons in which the punchline is someone exasperatedly saying “Marmaduke!” — I would almost want to see it for the sheer absurd spectacle. Imagine if they made a Ziggy movie, for instance.
Instead, it’s just every crappy talking animal movie rolled into one, with Owen Wilson as a giant talking dog.
