Garfield (Bill Murray), the fat, lazy, lasagna lover, has everything a cat could want. But when Jon Arbuckle (Breckin Meyer), in an effort to impress veterinarian and old high-school crush Liz (Jennifer Love Hewitt), adopts a dog named Odie and brings him home, Garfield gets the one thing he doesn't want. Competition. One night, Odie runs away and gets dog-napped after Garfield locks him outside. Garfield, in an out of character move, goes to search for and rescue Odie with the help of a variety of animal friends along the way.Written by
Bill Murray has said during interviews that he hates that he didn't think to have Garfield say his famous Ghostbusters (1984) line "Dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!" (in the scenes of Odie being introduced to the house) until after all post-production had been completed, and it was too late to add it. See more »

The first song on the end credits from the start of the movie only plays for 30 seconds; it can be heard playing all the way through on the DVD Director's Commentary and some of the song choices are different. See more »
On the Spanish dubs of this film, the song "Naranja" is dubbed in English. This is due to the fact the song was written in Spanish. See more »

Quite a good kids movie.
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.
