User Reviews

good for the kids,but has some scary looking characters
30 January 2008 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

i don't quite no what to make of this film.this is Garfield's first CG animated movie.i thought it had some amusing moments,but nothing laugh out loud funny.the story is very simple,so kids will be able to follow it very easily.the voices were very fitting for the characters.the CG in general looks nice and pretty.that's the good news.the bad news?some of the characters look quite freaky,almost scary,i think..i also found the movie very slow for much of the time.i realise i'm much older than the target audience.for kids,if they don't find some of the characters too creepy,they will probably enjoy it.adults might like it too,and if not,at least they know their kids are watching kid friendly entertainment.for me,i give Garfield Gets Real a 5/10
