Quotes

Narrator: [as Garfield chases a mouse] Soon, Cave Cat learned to live with his human counterparts and spent his time pretty much as cats do now.
[the mouse escapes to a hole in his rock, but Garfield reaches inside. As he does, the mouse breathes fire in his face]
Narrator: Ahem, except for the fire breathing mice.
[dissolve to black to the next scene where two cavemen are playing around]
Narrator: Ah, yes, those were simple times. Times when people had to entertain themselves.

changes the whole meaning of the word GARFIELD
15 June 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

ouch... this special made my brain go to mush. one of the best books I ever read was garfield's 9 lives. and i should say that it is very mature and nobody under the age of 18+ should read it. it contains: extreme vulgar language, violence, blood and gore, and some sexual remarks. pick up this book and read it now... anyway... this special is so boring, so mind boggling that no one should see it. you would think of garfield as lazy, funny, and full of mischief. this explains a whole new garfield...s... each one of them are retarded and the story lines are so badly written that you could have said they were written by a 3 year old. avoid this movie!
