Glad to be done with Garfield
22 November 2017 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

I believe this is the last of the Garfield movies I'll ever have to see in my life and boy am I glad. I realize that Garfield was something that has not held up as an adult. I guess you could say I grew out of it, but it just no longer entertains me. This movie features really bad CGI and everyone and everything just looks so ugly. I do admit that I like the premise as it shows how a comic strip is made. It's set up on a stage where a director takes pictures for the panels. That's actually an interesting setup. The main plot doesn't even appear until 24 minutes into the whole movie and for a film that's fairly short, that's a bad idea.

I realize now that I miss characters like Arlene appearing in the actual comics more. The only comic strip character that I recognized as appearing was Dagwood. It's just painful to watch this cheesy animation. It's rare that direct to video animated films use CGI like theatrically released ones and maybe this is the reason why. People don't seem to recognize Garfield even though there's comics of him right in front of their noses. It's not funny, it's just a dumb plot point. *1/2
