A 2010 film in which the Winslow family moves to California with their "large yet lovable" one-dog wrecking crew Great Dane.

!!Marmaduke provides examples of:

* AnAesop:
** Marmaduke shouldn't lie and he should've got with Maisy because FirstGirlWins, not Richest Girl.
** Also at the end, Phil realizes that being "Top Dog" doesn't mean getting others (ESPECIALLY Marmaduke) to listen to him all the time. It means looking out for his family.
* AnimalTalk: The animals can talk to each other and to their owners, but the humans can't understand what they're saying.
* BetaCouple: Phil's daughter Barbara and her crush Bodie to Marmaduke and his crush.
* BettyAndVeronica: The tomboy collie (Maisy) or the posh dog who serves as alpha female (Jezebel).
* BigBad:
** Subverted with "Chupadogra" was said to have killed his owner, striking fear into the local dogs. But later, it turns out that "Chupadogra" was in fact an old mastiff named Buster who ran away from home and led a pack only to be kicked out by his own pack. He then persuades Marmaduke to return to his family and soon is finally accepted by the other dogs in the end.

His wife, however, is displeased with this and says that Marmaduke was just a dog and doesn't know any better. In the end, she says "You want him in the backyard? ''Fine''. He may have the backyard... but you have the couch."

* HighSchoolAU: Not popular with anyone, to put it mildly.
* HollywoodCalifornia: The movie takes place mostly in "Orange County".
* IncomingHam: When the pedigrees are being introduced:
-->'''Mazie:''' Well, if you think you got the game, you could roll with our crew.\\
'''Marmaduke:''' Oh, yeah? Who's your crew?\\
'''Thunder and Lightning:''' MUTTS! ''[laugh hysterically]''
** And again when Marmaduke first meets Bosco:

'''Bosco:''' Dog food! ''[Appears before them]''
