Marmaduke and other shaggy dog stories

We get quite a few offers to review movies, but I have to say that Charlie's not that keen really, he gets scared easily and films are loud and take place in big dark rooms. Case in point, he counted down the days to the release of Toy Story 3 for months, but he came out and cried for half an hour after not really watching it. Apparently, there is a scary doll.

So, when the team promoting Marmaduke contacted us to see if we'd like to go I rather thought not, however I passed it on to friends of ours whose daughter is very keen on films and asked them to give us the scoop.  Click here for more.

i have a weird aversion to animal movies. they have a tendency to make me cry, and i just can't be having that.

in other news, how does one get star-struck lucky enough to be actually asked by movie companies to review movies? and does it pay well? and if i were to type a line like, say, "it was complete fucking bollocks" would they stand for that?

Glad to hear there were no wardrobe-related incidents in this post.
Best regards to Sammy, who undoubtedly knows a lowly Great Dane can't hold a candle to an ancient cat!

Darth - if it was bollocks I would certainly say so... I'm on some list apparently.

Cactus - no wardrobe incidents so far... I'll pass your best to Sammy who is currently sitting on my elbow making typing difficult...
