'Flood fighting is in our DNA': To live by the Feather River is to know its power and danger



The comic-strip canine prompts another gathering of an all-star voice cast in this otherwise unremarkable animated feature that maintains a dog's life isn't so bad.

Having moved with his owners to Southern California, Marmaduke (who has the voice of Owen Wilson here) tries to settle into his new environment despite resistance from some of the animal residents already there. Kiefer Sutherland, George Lopez, William H. Macy, Marlon Wayans, Damon Wayans Jr., Stacy Ferguson (alias music's Fergie), Jeremy Piven ("Entourage") and the ever-distinctive-sounding Sam Elliott also are heard. ** (PG: P) (Also on Blu-ray)
