Memorable, crazy movie
If you don't like this, we can't be friends.
The movie's neither hopeful in contrived ways, nor hopeless in different contrived ways. Somehow it manages to be wonderful
I have stacks and stacks of the Garfield comic books.Is the movie 100% authentic to the comics and cartoon series? Of course not. Jon isn't quite the bumbling bachelor nerd he was in the comics. But at the end of the day if you like dogs and cats and appreciate the Garfield character I think you'll enjoy the film.
I just want to say that this movie wont let you bored every scene and every second this movie makes you laugh. I would personally recommend this to my friends and to you. You would wonder why a grown up person would like this. It doesn't mean that if it's animated it's for toddlers only. So moving on this movie has a good animation and a good story or a good plot and the most important thing is that you would learn lessons. Garfield the Movie is a Comedy film and slightly Romantic on some parts. When I first watched this movie I taught that it's just so simple that the story would only revolve on a cat, Garfield. But no it also tells the story of some different characters and that's what makes the movie good. I assure you It's good.
Bill Murray, what are you doing in this movie? You played one of the Ghostbusters, man! You should have known better! I loved Garfield and the comic strips, but why would you make a live action film featuring a CGI cat and a CGI dog! I got plenty of things that are wrong with this movie.First of all, Odie is a yellow beagle! That dog who's suppose to look like Odie doesn't actually look like him at all! Second, it's trying to rip-off the first Garfield TV Special: Here comes Garfield. The plot nearly resembles the 1980 TV special and tries to rip it off. Third, the actors. Why couldn't you get Frank Welker to voice Garfield or Greg Berger to voice Odie?! What the heck is wrong with you?! Finally, the entire movie should have been in animation! Whoever said that live-action with crappy CGI characters is a great idea was high on dope! This movie is an utter disgrace to the Garfield franchise and it should have never been made in the first place! Where is Jim Davis when you needed him?!!
Annoying for adults; boring for children. This cat movie is a real dog.There's no story, and no plot. What works in the comic strip is torturous as a movie. Garfield spends 90 minutes or so of your time spewing mocking remarks about his companions, the hapless John Arbuckle and Odie the dimwitted dog. Odie and John stand there and take it, just making dopey looks amidst the poorly rendered animation. Odie is a real animal, while Garfield is animated; this is awkward, and makes no sense. They have one thing in common, though: neither of them is interesting or endearing in any way. Jennifer Love Hewitt (before she advised dead people in Ghost Whisperer), shows up every once in a while, also doing not much of anything. There's no identity with the characters, no fun, no involvement in whatever was going on (which wasn't much). Bill Murray impersonates the late Lorenzo Music as the jaded, apathetic, and sarcastic Garfield voice pretty well. But it was a much funnier routine when Music did Carlton the doorman, an offstage character that was never seen. We all would have been better off if Garfield had never been seen, either.
