The voice of Garfield in the movie (Bill Murray) was originally voiced by Lorenzo Music in the Garfield TV shorts and movies released in the 80's. Lorenzo Music was also the voice of Dr. Peter Venkman in the TV cartoon series, "The Real Ghostbusters", for the first season. Dr. Peter Venkman was originally played in "Ghostbusters" by Bill Murray. See more »
When Jon is driving to the castle to find Garfield, he's driving on the wrong side of the road. In the UK they drive on the left side. Jon was on the right side. See more »
This is a huge mistake, Jon. One of your biggest. Don't roam. Stay home. Odie and I are not just going on for the ride.

[spits out some grass]
This is actually an intervention.

Nice for what it is. Silly, good hearted, for kids and parents. Bit slow for adults
I did not know this was a children's movie. After all, Shrek, Monsters Inc., Toy Story, etc., appeal to children, but are also squarely aimed at adults. Garfield, Tale of Two Kitties is squarely aimed at younger folk, with a few mild chuckles for the parents. It was colorful, well done, excellent quality, etc. but let's face it, by being designed for 5-10 year-olds, it also had to be really sloooooooow.
Brekin Myer is a charming actor with good vibes. So is the chick--- Jennifer Love Hewitt. Likable people. The British supporting cast (note that the movie starts in America, but moves to an English location soon enough) is also excellent. Billy Connoly plays an odious villain; I find that comedian rather odious in person, myself. But I must confess he seemed to be a good actor--- maybe his odi-osity was due to great acting ability? Anyway--- Bob Hoskins is a hoot as the bulldog, and the other animal voices are good, too. Tim Curry was an amazing counterpart to Garfield, playing the ultra-posh aristocratic English cat, Prince. But again, the jokes are NOT multi-leveled. They are simple, aimed at 5 year-olds. If you take your kids, you'll like it too. If you go with adults, you'll have a lot of cognitive capacity left over whilst viewing it to accommodate virtually any daydreaming task.
