Garfield: The Movie Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0 from 1 reviews
view all

The best thing that this escapee from the comic pages has going for it is that fat, nap-taking, lasagna-loving orange cat Garfield (a CGI-creation) is perfectly voiced by the sardonic Murray. The lazy feline dominates nice guy owner Jon (Meyer) and is appalled when life in paradise is threatened by the arrival of excitable mongrel Odie, who arrives via Garfield's sexy vet, Dr. Liz (Hewitt). Naturally, Garfield does his best to get rid of his doggy nuisance until Odie winds up in the clutches of nasty TV show host Happy Chapman (Tobolowsky), who's a decidedly unhappy guy. So it's Garfield to the rescue! Despite the daily comic strip, Garfield's long past his cultural prime, so it's a mystery how he made it to the big screen, especially in this unfunny, slapstick exercise in tedium.

Garfield: The Movie

Garfield the movie is very cute. I remember growing watching Garfield the television series and reading the comic strips with my sister. I loved the television series. I was excited and couldn't wait to see the movie when I heard about it. The movie is really good and I know a lot of children enjoy this movie. I remember when this movie came out, my youngest sister watched this movie over and over and over again. This movie is great for all ages. It's funny, cute, and entertaining. I'm sure you'll enjoy watching Garfield the movie.
