Garfield (voiced by Bill Murray) had it all - an overstuffed chair, a push-over owner, and plenty of lasagne - until his owner Jon brings home Odie. Odie has more pep than brains, but hes stealing Jons attention and threatening Garfields lazy lifestyle. When Garfield goes on a mission to get Odie out of his house and out of his life, he unwittingly sets in motion a chain of events that puts Odie in the hands of the mean spirited, third rate, TV personality Happy Perkins. To save Odie, Garfield has to muster more courage and energy than usual, and embark on an adventure that takes him well out of the confines of his comfy existence.

Being a Garfield fan i thought this movie was spot on. Taking the Fat cat from the cartoon comic strips to the big screen is great. Knowing Garfield in the comic strips and seeing him in the movie just confirms that he is a lasagna eating fat cat who loves his owner Jon. When he ends up having to share Jon with the newest member of the house (Odie the dog) Garfield finds that to hard to swallow so makes it his business to make him feel very unwelcome. But Odie thinks of Garfield as his new best friend.
The end is so sweet how after Odie gets left outside (by Garfield) he runs away and then is dognapped. When Garfield finds out that he is missing and that it was his fault and that Jon is very upset he takes matter in to his own hands and goes looking for Odie. He finds him just in time and again the family is reunited.
A must watch for all the Feline lovers out there.
Unfortuantely, I am not a big fan of Garfield in the first place and this movie definately did not convert me, therefore I found it boring and child-like. It has a very slow moving plot, strange characters and unconvincing animation. I would not recommend this movie if you are not a fan of Garfield however, you might really enjoy it if you are a previous fan.
This is such a hilarious movie!
I think it captures Garfield's character from the cartoons quite well. It wouldn't be easy considering this is a live action movie. Garfield fits in well and has been CGI'd incredibly well.
A lovely storyline where Garfield comes through for Odie even though he couldn't stand him at the start.
I particuarly love the dancing scene, it's very well done!
A great movie for adults and children alike!
The Garfield movie feels like it has very little in common with the brilliant comic strip, but that was bound to happen when turned into a family film. The character of Jon is totally off (what happened to the spiteful, depressed loner from the comics?) and the vet should have remained unrelenting in her rejecting his advances. A very unfunny film with none of the wit and charm of its comic strip counterpart.
Garfield is the funniest movie it is so great, adventuress and so exciting!
It is about a cat and a dog and the cats name is called Garfield and the dogs name is called Odie. The funniest bit is when the dog dance’s around like a hooligan!
The saddest big is when Garfield leaves Odie outside not knowing that dogs run away
and gets stolen.
I am eight years old and I really like this movie.
Altough it has some problems, the movie was very funny! garfield was graet, the scenario was weak in some parts. not a serious problem! and the dance scene with that freaky rap music, in the TV trailer, they had used "just like an old time rock n roll" from bob seger which was very exciting, I whatched this movie only for that part, but in the movie, there was a rap music isted of bob seger!
but the real problem is the DVD which has no special features, this movie at least deserved to be released as a two discs special edition, at least they could add a featurette on single disc edition, but nothing.
I used to love Garfield until I saw this movie, now I can't et into the cartoon because the obnoxious animated version fills my head. the actors look almost embarassed by the lines the have to deliver, I sure hope they really needed the money. Spare yourself the agony of this one and save about ninety minutes of torture.
What an abomination. Talk about ruining a great thing. Garfield was one of my all time fave reads as a child and this movie is a poor adaptation of the much loved character.
Casting of Jon was wrong in so many ways... little Breckin Meyer portraying a lanky, curly- haired loner?. I mean even Odie? Since when was Odie a wire-haired dachshund. Would you really cast a wire haired JRT to play Snoopy? of course not. Nermal should have been a little grey kitten not a bloody Persian and is Garfield's best pal not enemy of cuteness. Liz fancies Jon, not in the comics she never.
The whole story line lacks anything worth remembering. Bill Murray drones on and irritates the ears early on.
The dry humor of the comics is nowhere to be seen instead has given way to silly childish laughs.
One to miss if ever you were a fan of the comic strip.
I love love loveee this movie, i had about 20 garfield comic books when i was little, and when this came out at the movies i nearly camped out to watch it, not much of a story line, but just to watch garfield come to life, with that monotone voice of his throughout the whole movie was worth it alone, i much rather the comic strips, but this is definitely worth watching if your a garfield fan
All the years I've been a loyal reader of the Garfield comics, I never had the impression it's merely meant for kids. On the contrary, most of the dry humor and charismatic Garfield poses are difficult to 'get' for young children. And yet, the film completely aims for a youthful audience. I have no problem with a movie being pro-children, but this is exaggerated and hardly accessible for adult viewers. The movie totally lacks all the elements that make the comics so entertaining. Garfield's clever and sarcastic remarks, Jon's clumsy womanizing techniques… All this has been replaced with an unhealthy dose of feel-good messages and lame jokes. The computer engineered Garfield doesn't appeal and the other, real pets are badly chosen. The plot is standard-sentiment, with Garfield saving his new housemate puppy from a sneaky, fame-chasing TV host. Breckin Meyer (as Jon Arbuckle) and Jennifer Love Hewitt (as the yummy vet Liz) walk around without anything to do and Bill Murray voices Garfield like it's some sort of dire job he wants to get rid of asap. The first (long-awaited?) cinema adventure of everybody's favorite cat appears to be a quickly produced and unprofessional flick soon to be forgotten. Too bad, since you're left behind with the feeling they could have done something better with this.
