Storyline

Garfield (Bill Murray) is back and this time he and his canine sidekick Odie follow their owner, Jon Arbuckle (Breckin Meyer), 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 (Sir Billy Connolly) 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>

If you like Garfield, you'll enjoy it, otherwise...
5 May 2007 | by buigerSee all my reviews

This is nothing more and nothing less than a typical sequel. Meaning it is very similar to and also slightly worse than the original. Having said that, I cannot but repeat what I mentioned in my review of 'Garfield 1': This is an entertaining movie that doesn't aspire to be anything else. Garfield's characterization is very good, albeit rather simplistic. Bill Murray is the one who actually gives Garfield his soul, he once again does such a great job with the voice, it's perfect! On the other hand, once again I found the main flaw of this film to be in the fact that the director concentrated on making a movie for kids, rather than for adults which would be more befitting for a Garfield movie. The plot is so simplistic it borders on retarded, and so is most of the "humans" acting.

Thankfully though, Garfields' character and his gags and lines (as well as the excellent computer animation) lift the movie up just enough for it to be on an acceptable level of decent, watchable entertainment.
