“Marmaduke”: Like its four-legged star, hero of the popular cartoon, this film is big, slobbery and shambling – qualities that no doubt will delight discriminating 6-year-olds and leave their parents yawning. As the voice of Marmaduke, Owen Wilson, the tilted Texan, sounds like John Wayne on laughing gas. (1:27; PG for rude humor and language) • •

“Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too?”: Four couples reunite for their annual vacation in order to socialize and to spend time analyzing their marriages. (2:01; PG-13 for sexuality, language, drug references and domestic violence)

“Harry Brown”: An elderly British man (Michael Caine) reaches a breaking point when drugs and violence overtake his apartment complex. (1:43; R for violence and language, drug use and sexual content)

Also available: “The Lottery,” “OSS 117: Lost in Rio,” “The Spell”
