An orange cat tries to save his owner's (Breckin Meyer) new dog after a television personality (Stephen Tobolowsky) kidnaps it.
Movie Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes®
" Bland, workmanlike and instantly forgettable. "
" Our 8-year-old adored it. But except for Murray's voice-over work, Mom was allergic. "
" Bland as old kitty chow and unappealing to the eye. "
" Though Garfield runs barely 80 minutes, it seems a good hour of it involves chases, furniture and luggage collapsing, and grown-up actors madly mugging. "
" The movie is far from a cat-astrophe, but it's also nowhere near purr-fect. "
" Not even Bill Murray could save Garfield. "
" I'm not a Garfield purist or anything, but at the very least, shouldn't this movie be funny? "
" Perfectly watchable. "
" Soulless excuse for an entertainment. "
" Without Murray, the film would have much less appeal. "
" Garfield may or may not have nine lives. But you may leave the theater feeling you've left at least one of your own behind. "
" Garfield: The Movie is irresistible even though it isn't very good. It gets by on goodwill alone. "
" Only very small children still easily impressed by interaction of human actors and CGI quadrupeds will be amused by Garfield: The Movie. "
" ... a film without energy and without spirit. "
" There's nothing to recommend about this film except its sheer innocuousness. "
" No one can accuse Garfield: The Movie of infidelity to its source: It faithfully conveys the banality of Jim Davis's cartoon. "
" This film is unlikely to turn newcomers onto the pleasures and subtleties of Davis' work. "
" Garfield looks like the work of someone who's hardly seen the backside of a camera. "
" A downright cat-astrophe. "
" Garfield isn't exactly a dog, but it's not much fun either. "
