Editorial Reviews

Garfield, long-running champion of the Fun Fest talent show, believes he can't lose. Problem is, his sidekick (and girlfriend) Arlene wants to change the act. When Garfield refuses, Arlene hooks up with a suave, narcissistic newcomer, Ramon, for a show-stopping Tango. Not one for solo performances, Garfield loses his humor mojo! With hours ticking away till showtime, Garfield, with pal Odie in tow, sets out to find the Holy Grail of Guffaws -- the magic pond of funny water within the Mystical Forest he read about in a fairy tale storybook. On a journey filled with riddles, jokes, quirky characters and a comedy guru (Freddy the Frog, the very first funny... anything!), can Garfield learn the lessons of true comedy and make it back in time to capture first prize and win Arlene back?

By ONENEO VINE VOICE on October 18, 2010
Format: DVD
After a recent run of sub par animated feature films, I really went into this one with low expectations. After all, I reasoned, 20th Century-Fox has decided to release this one straight-to-DVD after only a brief appearance on cable television.

In spite of my clouded prospects (or perhaps due to them), this one actually turned out much, much better than expected. Is there danger of mistaking it for the next Pixar or DreamWorks mega hit? Probably not, although realistically speaking, the visuals are easily on par. The source material, after all, has been around for 30 years now and the CGI animated feature film medium is an absolutely irresistible place for popular cartoons to venture into after decades of 2D drawings and cartoon attempts. All factors considering, this film succeeds in many of the key areas that typically separate the entries of the "big boys" from the direct-to-DVD fodder. But before we get into that, let's recap the tale, shall we?

Proving that the title is no mere clever pun, this film opens with Garfield and Jon in the employ of Cartoon World, a studio that produces comic strips by filming the cartoon characters in action. Somewhere in here there is irony in the notion of videoing a computer-generated image with the hopes of turning it into a 2D black and white comic but I digress.

It's a special time at Cartoon World, because the annual Fun Fest talent competition is fast approaching, and everyone in the city (even the mute Odie) want in on the action. The grand prize, it turns out, is top billing in the newspaper's Funnies section and with that the spoils of popularity.

After the disappointed Garfield Gets Real, I wasn't looking forward to watching Garfield's Funfest, but I ended up liking it. Frank Welker does an excellent job as voicing the new Garfield.

Imagine a story in which a funny cartoon cat gets abducted by aliens. He's replaced by a cat that's not funny and not a cartoon. That doesn't happen in this story, but it might as well. What does happen is that Garfield loses his "funny". That gives the writers a chance to lose theirs. Garfield supposedly gets his funny back at the end of the show. The writers never get theirs back.

The idea seems to be to see how far Garfield can break the mold. How un-Garfield can you get and still have him vaguely recognizable enough for branding? There's a trend in animation to take something that works and keep breaking it until it doesn't, and to staff studios with shirts who apparently can't tell the difference. But it's hard to believe audiences can't tell either.

When Garfield first appeared in the funny papers in 1978, it was slammed as the least funny comic in existence. Arguably it became the funniest comic in existence. In its thirty plus years, it's changed a lot, and in many ways gotten better. Garfield TV specials won Emmy awards and built Phil Roman's gargantuan Film Roman animation studio. Twenty years in, Jim Davis managed to buy the rights back from the syndicate. Fox's Garfield and Friends is arguably yet one of the best kids' cartoon series of all time.

What to do? How about a live action movie? How about various sorts of CGI shorts and featurettes? Instead of using the proven characters from Garfield and U.S. Acres, how about just inventing new ones? And lastly, why should Garfield be funny? Must he kick Odie off the table? Must he be so satirical and sardonic? What if he were warm and romantic and friendly and lovable, with no sharp edges, no barbed wit, more, uh, bland?

My son watched many varieties of movies but when he saw this, he watched it over and over. He now mentions Garfield often when he lists his 'favorites'.
