The thinnest Garfield special
22 February 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

I was never too keen on Garfield in Paradise, there is just something about it that doesn't gel. Garfield TV specials are always great but there's a couple of annoying things in this one.

Jon has taken Garfield (and a stowaway Odie) to Hawaii for a vacation, staying in a lousy hotel after a third class plane ride. Everything about their trip reeks of sleaze. Soon they happen upon a native village (containing a very irritating, gibberish-talking short guy showing asscrack that belongs in something like The Simpons) and have to drive their 1957 vintage rentacar into a volcano to plug the hole.

There's not much more to it than that I'm afraid. Though seeing as how I'm trying to plan a sunny beach holiday it did kinda put me off booking a cheap hotel and flight.
