Basic Kids Movie, They'll Love It, Parents Can't Wait Until It's Over
23 October 2005 | by Loudmouth42069See all my reviews

Well the only thing I can say about this is it's your basic kids' movie - parents'll think it's alright but can't wait until it's over, while the kids will love it most likely. Personally, as a 20-year-old adult male who enjoys kids' movies like Finding Nemo and whatnot, I thought it was alright. Kinda dragged in parts of the movie, but the humorous attitude of Garfield makes it bearable to take your kids to. So unless you got kids, I'd suggest it just as a rental when you got nothing to do on a Sunday night. Below are the overall pros and cons: Pros - Humorous spots with the attitude of Garfield, which basically saves the movie from being a total bust.

Cons - Often drags in spots, and mostly bearable for kids and adults who enjoy kids' movies every now and then. But that's just me.
