Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties is actually funnier and more charming than the first film.

Chicago Tribune
When the humans have the sense to keep quiet, and the animals are doing their shtick, there's great fun to be had.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
The stellar array of British talent (voicing the various farm animals) and Murray (whom one suspects has rewritten Garfield's lines to be Murray-esque) give Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties all its energy and make the human actors -- even comedian Connolly -- look and sound like square panels in a two-dimensional comic strip.

Entertainment Weekly
In the ''flesh,'' Garfield himself (voiced by Bill Murray) is once again strikingly unlikable, a bloated, bingeing fascist.

The Hollywood Reporter
This lifeless, talky, family-oriented feature never manages to rise to the occasion of its witty title.
38
It comes off like a coughed-up furball: a wan rehash with too many elements of the hard-to-swallow 2004 original.
38
New York Daily News
In a town as status-conscious as Hollywood, the embarrassment of two "Garfield" movies on your résumé must sting like the Dickens.
38
Miami Herald
Something about the sequel, Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties, doesn't seem nearly as obnoxious as the original.
38
New York Post
Kids should see Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties. It'll help prepare them for a lifetime of mediocre entertainment ahead.
38
Though Murray and Curry gamely deliver some chuckle-worthy one-liners along the way, they're mostly leashed to material as moldy and uninspired as the "Jeffersons" theme song.
25
Children will enjoy the physical humor, but discerning adults are advised to pawn their sons and daughters off on some other unsuspecting chaperone -- preferably one who doesn't read movie reviews.
