I'm a sucker for talking animals, I admit it. Oddly enough, talking baby commercials sicken me, but talking animals (if done well) always give me a chuckle. While this live-action MARMADUKE movie may be geared more toward kids, it looks like the filmmakers went out of their way to put enough stuff in here to please even the most stern adults too. Owen Wilson is the voice of Marmaduke, with Kiefer Sutherland voicing the evil dog, George Lopez voicing Carlos the cat, and Fergie playing a love interest... dog, that is. Other voices include Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Ron Perlman, Jeremy Piven, Steve Coogan, and Emma Stone. Lee Pace, William H. Macy, and Judy Greer show up as real people... er, characters. While the "dance" number looks more than a little silly, I will say this actually could be a lot of fun. Check it out and tell us what you think.
