Overview

Jim Davis' famous cartoon cat finally makes his way to the big screen in this adaptation of the popular comic strip Garfield, which combines live action with CGI animation. Jon Arbuckle Breckin Meyer is a sweet, if somewhat clueless, man who shares his home with his pet cat, Garfield voice of Bill Murray. Garfield is not your ordinary tabby -- he's fat, he's smart-mouthed, he's arrogant, he won't do anything he doesn't have to, and would rather stuff himself with lasagna than do something Jon asks of him. Despite this, Jon loves his cat, but when he decides to expand his animal family, Garfield is less than enthusiastic about the presence of Odie, a lovably enthusiastic dog whose only flaw is his extreme stupidity. While Jon is crazy for Odie, and especially likes having two pets that necessitate periodic visits to Dr. Liz Wilson Jennifer Love Hewitt, a veterinarian he has a crush on, Garfield decides to remove Odie from the picture. Garfield arranges for Odie to become the property of Happy Chapman Stephen Tobolowsky, a television host who acts like an animal lover on the round-cornered screen but doesn't much like pets on his own time. While Garfield at first enjoys ruling the roost again, he soon realizes the error of his ways, and in a rare example of selfless and ambitious behavior, hatches a plan to rescue Odie from Chapman. Garfield also features the voice talents of Debra Messing, Brad Garrett, Jimmy Kimmel, and Alan Cumming.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Garfield is a lasagna-stuffed slacker from America who is "king of the cul-de-sac," while his look-alike, Prince, is the lord of an English castle. Never the twain shall meet, but in this feline twist on The Prince and the Pauper, Garfield and Prince trade flea collars for a spell before uniting to take on the bad guy. The scene-setting ruse involves Garfield stowing away on a trip to London with his owner, Jon Breckin Meyer, who intends to propose to his veterinarian girlfriend, Liz Jennifer Love Hewitt -- a union that does not pass muster with Garfield. Prince, meanwhile, is out on the streets after being unceremoniously disposed of by the scoundrel Lord Dargis Scottish comedian Billy Connolly, the next in line to inherit the country estate over which Prince presides. The bland Meyer and Hewittt are easily upstaged by the computer-animated cats and the anthropomorphic antics of the live-action animals that come to Garfield and Prince's aid to "kick royal butt" and foil Dargis's scheme to raze the castle and build an animal-free resort and spa. Bill Murray's wise-guy disdain is ideal for the voice of Garfield, who makes himself right at home in the castle. And Tim Curry is his equal as the sheltered Prince, who discovers the joys of lasagna. The change of scenery does Garfield good; the sequel is even better than the original.
