Storyline

Garfield is back and this time Garfield and his canine sidekick Odie follows their owner, Jon Arbuckle, to England, the U.K. may never recover, as Garfield is mistaken for a look-alike, regal cat who has inherited a castle. Garfield savors the royal treatment afforded by his loyal four-legged subjects, but his reign is in jeopardy! The evil nefarious stubborn Lord Dargis is determined to do away with Garfield, so he can turn the castle into a resort. Garfield's bigger, better, more perfect world is soon turned upside down in this tale of two kitties. Written by Anthony Pereyra <hypersonic91@yahoo.com>

After this one, I can't wait for another!
8 July 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Jon (Breckin Meyer) is about to propose to his veterinarian girlfriend, Liz, and has set up a romantic dinner. Horrors! Garfield does his best to wreck the meal but, more importantly, Liz has to dash to London at once, for an important conference. Words of love do not get spoken! But, wait. What if Jon goes to London secretly and surprises Liz with his proposition there? Good idea, except that Garfield and Odie sneak in the luggage for a trip, too. At that same moment in time, an old lady in England dies and leaves her entire estate, including the eye-popping castle, to her cat, Prince. Her nephew is thwarted, although he will be the eventual heir when Prince is expired. Well, what if the cat gets a bit of help losing his nine lives? Oh, Prince is a dead ringer for Garfield and mix-ups do occur, especially when cats hop buses and steamers. Soon, Garfield is living it up in the castle and Prince is trying to find his way back home. Meanwhile, Jon is searching for his beloved lost pet. Oh, what a tangled web! This darling, darling movie is a joy for children and adults. The script is very funny, both in words and in physical activity, pleasing old and young alike. Meyer and Love-Hewitt are just what one wants in the adult characters surrounding the lovable feline. Murray is absolutely beyond compare as the voice of the grumpy yet winning orange bunch of fur, in this case, twice over. The scenery and castle in London are the best eye candies around while the many animals who live in the castle just melt one's heart with their charm and antics. After watching this film, a viewer's only wish is that the series will last, at least to the point of matching Rocky's achievements. If you want to treat your children and yourself, do not delay in finding a way to bring this movie to your family. Everyone will say, as the boy in the seat behind me at the theater, Mom, when can we see this film again?
