Well, the wait is finally over. 'Marmaduke' opens today, fetching, walking and talking (voiced by "Lightning McQueen" himself, Owen Wilson). The humans involved aren't too shabby, either: 'Pushing Daisies'' Lee Pace and the always-animated Judy Greer co-star.
As big as he is, Marmaduke can't create havoc alone. Among the other voices you'll hear in the film are George Lopez, Fergie and McLovin' (aka Christopher Mintz-Plasse).
Parents of preteens will certainly find the movie's PG rating comforting, especially since some flicks of late have carried a PG-13 (we're looking at you, 'Prince of Persia'). Is 'Marmaduke' as brisk as a walk in the park? A top dog of summer films? Let's see if the critics wanted to flea the theater (Okay, okay, sorry).
