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>

Yet another mediocre sequel to an otherwise better movie.
18 July 2020 | by robertdonatoSee all my reviews

Garfield: The Movie 2 is the sequel to the movie adaptation of the popular comic book series. While I remembered a few scenes of the original, I do not remember watching this sequel at all as a child. The first movie was good but this sequel is mediocre.

What I like about this sequel is that the opening credits are decent, the soundtrack is as good as the original, both the acting and voice acting are okay, Garfield is slightly less irritating, the returning characters retain the same personalities as the original, the original song for this movie, "Moving on Up" is good, the antagonist is barely passable, it's a good enough ending to the live action Garfield movie series, the animation is okay like the original and the end credits scenes are okay.

However, what I dislike about this sequel is that Garfield's character development from the original is almost completely undone (at least he changes for the better again later on), Odie is less important to the story this time around, there is a lot more toilet humor, they forced in a lot of pop culture references for no reason, the plot is more cliched, the story is less interesting, the villain defeat is almost identical to that of the first movie, some of the plot points are illogical and the story can get very predictable at times.

Overall, I find this movie to be very mediocre when comparing it to it's slightly better predecessor. I would not recommend this even for fans of both the first Garfield movie and the Garfield franchise as a whole.
