Sorry for not having a real post up; here’s a Filler Clip(tm) to demonstrate why the Marmaduke movie is doomed: because it doesn’t have Scatman Crothers singing about him. His absence will also spell disaster for the Hong Kong Phooey movie. I never saw this show, but I’m surprised that the song is actually somewhat clever (“The hot dog cat and the pussycat hound”).
And here are the closing credits that prove Paul Haggis was one of the writers. But then he pretty much wrote for everything.
