Garfield, the fat, lazy, lasagna lover, has everything a cat could want.

One night Odie runs away and gets dog-napped after Garfield locks him outside.

When everyone escapes from the animal shelter, a comment is made by a dog about the fire hydrant located right outside the door. The fire hydrant is a "wet barrel" model which is used in warm weather locations. The mid-west uses "dry barrel" hydrants to prevent freeze damage. See more »
I don't see why people blast this movie so much. It is funny, well acted and well animated. Breckin Meyer plays the nerdy Jon very well and acts like the pet loving dork that we loved so much in the cartoon. Garfield looks amazing, almost identical to what he looked like in the cartoon. Bill Murray is perfect to play him and his voice is similar to Lorenzo Music. They included all the trates of Garfield- lasagne, TV and being a lazy fat cat. Thye kept Odie the moronic but lovable dog. They kept the fact that Garfield has an agreement with the mice and gets on with them. They kept Liz the vet, which brings so much more to Jon. This is a great kids movie, that i am sure adults who watched this as a kid will love too.
