I understand if you dislike this movie. I have found this film to be a blast. For one, Garfield was a pleasure as I was growing up, being a Garfield fan for a while, I have never heard of this movie until 2010 when I have gotten a DVD of this movie from WalMart, I haven't sat down and watched the whole film, that was until mid-April, when I have ordered this product on VHS, one reason I got this is I am a VHS collector, after viewing it, I have became an instant Garfield fan. Thus stating, I have made this my most favorite film I've seen, next to Storks, Nine Lives (2016), Zootopia & Inside Out (2015). I can tell you, Garfield fan or not, I recommend this film if you're planning on watching it, you'll like it, but not as much as I did.

Life couldn't be sweeter for Garfield, everyone's favourite feline. Parked on a comfortable chair in front of the television, feasting on his favourite dish, lasagna, and hurling insults at his beleaguered owner Jon, Garfield is the master of his universe.When Jon takes Garfield to visit beautiful veterinarian Liz Wilson, she gives Jon a pepped-up, tail-wagging, panting creature that represents everything that Garfield loathes. Garfield, meet Odie, a lovable, dim-witted dog. The wise-cracking cat is, for the first time in his nine lives, left speechless. The clueless Odie chases his tail till he's dizzy, crashes into walls, and barks without cause, all to the unbridled delight of Jon who eagerly welcomes Odie into his home. Odie turns Garfield's perfect world upside down. Garfield's solution: OUT, DARN DOG. When the hapless hound disappears into the evil clutches of local celebrity Happy Chapman, you would think Garfield would rejoice. But he feels responsible for the fate of another. With uncharacteristic energy, courage and selflessness, Garfield manages to pull himself away from his lazy life and spring into action. He's on the unlikeliest of impossible missions: to save Odie.
This is a sweet movie, and quite amusing. It's good for the entire family from kids to adults. The human cast and the actor voices for the animals were well done. I especially liked Jennifer Love Hewitt, who was so charming as Liz, Garfield's vet and Jon's love interest. It's only 80 minutes long and goes by quickly. (I confess: I like short movies.)

My son went through a Garfield phase. We watched this movie maybe 2x bwfore deciding on buying it. I was Garfield out for a while. Since having my son, i have bought so many movies and different episodes of stuff but anything for my baby!
Watch through before showing children- topics include sexual references(not direct), shock collar being used on real animal(I know it’s not real but it looks real enough), suggestive dancing, violence, bullying, meaness. This is a too far flung adaptation of the comic strip I loved reading.
We love Garfield! The playback was very sporadic though, so it was frustrating. We just watched the second Garfield - tale of two kitties last night and the playback was extremely sporadic - we finally just gave up and quit watching it. The movies themselves are a lot of fun though!
Watched it because my nephew was in town. I gotta say, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Prob would've rated it 4 stars if Jennifer Love Hewitt weren't in it (I just can't with her). Of course, Bill Murray is amazing as Garfield (as always).

Bought to keep the grandchildren amused. This is a really bargain as 3 full length feature films. As each film runs for at least an hour and a half this is more than 5hrs of peace and quiet. A god send after the long summer break. Highly recommended.
