Storyline

Garfield, the fat, lazy, lasagna lover, has everything a cat could want. But when Jon, in an effort to impress the Liz - the vet and an old high-school crush - adopts a dog named Odie and brings him home, Garfield gets the one thing he doesn't want. Competition. One night Odie runs away and gets dog-napped after Garfield locks him outside. Garfield, in an out of character move, goes to search for and rescue Odie with the help of a variety of animal friends along the way. Written by Mouse1177

I hated it and i didn't even pay for it!
14 July 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I hated this movie so much. It bought shame to Garfield and I cannot believe Jim Davis let them make it. Jennifer Love Hewitt is too good an actor to be wasted on this piece of garbage. The only reason I saw it was because I won free tickets to it from a competition run by my local newspaper. It is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. For one, the characters in the movie do not in anyway match the characters in the comic. Garfield himself is a terrible copy of the comic, plus let's face it, he's as ugly as sin. I am refusing to comment on Odie because he is a real shame! Plus this movie is 20 years too late. It should have been made in the 1980's, where the lame jokes and bad acting wouldn't have been noticed, but by the standards from other great movies like A Bug's Life & Harry Potter it was a real shoddy piece of lasagne. I rated this movie 1/10, and it comes to the 2nd worst movie i have ever seen (my least favourite movie of all time is the remake of the Cat in the Hat).
