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>

Trivia

Singer Prince was originally chosen for the role of Prince XII, but he opted out at the last minute, and so they had to scrap all of the animation and start over with Tim Curry, their second choice. See more »

Goofs

When Rommel is chasing Dargis after the animals fire the clay launcher at him, Dargis falls to the ground and looks behind him. As Rommel comes bounding around the corner, there are three people visible next to a stone sculpture. The camera switches to Dargis, and when the camera goes back to Rodney, the people are gone.

Quotes

[after being served a plate of Carlyle log]
Garfield: Ugh. Does a Great Dane live here?
Winston: It's your Carlyle log, my lord. A savory of liver and spleen served in a sleeve of sheep's intestines.
Garfield: And... you're supposed to eat it? What is this, Fear Factor? Intestines, spleen?
[pushes the plate away]
Garfield: I'm the king, right?
Winston: Prince, actually.
Garfield: Same difference, I rule. Yes?
Winston: Yes, Your Highness.
Garfield: Great. Well, feed this to the humans, and just bring me a piping hot dish of lasagna. Okay?

A huge improvement on the first film
6 February 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

This is an entertaining film, and is it better than the first movie? Yes, much better! The stunning location of the English castle was a delight, as was the lovely Jennifer Love Hewitt. Don't forget the adorable dog Oadie, who was one of two reasons(Jennifer Love Hewitt being the other) for watching the first film. Billy Connelly was too OTT, but it didn't help with the material he was given. The script was still a tad uninspired, but an improvement. Bill Murray is a lot more bearable in this movie, but he does sound a little bored. The supporting voice cast do a commendable job too, Tim Curry the standout with his aristocratic voice, he was perfect for the voice of Prince. I laughed a lot at this movie, its predecessor is a far cry from that. There are a few cheap gags such as the dog Rubble and the trousers, and some clever ones such as the mirror sequence, inspired by I think the Marx Brothers. Thank you for an entertaining movie, and it doesn't deserve the low rating. 7/10, Bethany Cox
