MARMADUKE

Section: Edition 2010

Synopsis

Marmaduke, the world’s most lovable Great Dane, leaps from comic strip fame (appearing in 600 newspapers in over 20 countries) to big screen stardom. In this family comedy event, the super-sized, ultra-awkward lap dog is living the good life with the Winslow family, including dad Phil, Phil’s wife Debbie, their three children, and feline pal Carlos. But when Phil uproots the clan from Kansas to California, Marmaduke finds his life turned upside-down. He must navigate the volatile Mutts vs. Pedigrees turf wars, woo the purebred of his dreams, and overcome a fall from grace from his new four-legged friends and his family.

 

Sinossi

Marmaduke, noto in Italia come Sansone, l’alano più simpatico del mondo, balza dai fumetti (pubblicati da 600 giornali in oltre 20 Paesi) al grande schermo. In questa commedia per famiglie, il gigantesco e goffissimo cane fa la bella vita insieme alla famiglia Winslow, composta da papà Phil, da sua moglie Debbie, dai loro tre figli, e dal gatto Carlos. Quando Phil sradica la sua tribù dal Kansas e la porta a vivere in California, la vita di Sansone cambia radicalmente, e tutto va sottosopra. Sansone dovrà affrontare gli accesi scontri tra cani di razza e cani meticci, corteggiare la cagnetta dei suoi sogni, e tentare in tutti i modi di tenersi stretto l’affetto dei suoi nuovi amici a quattro zampe e della sua famiglia.
