Garfield - The Movie Reviews

Zertinet Movies

"Garfield's" problems start with its very concept. This film should never have been made, and those involved with its production likely know it.

This family-friendly film is not unlike Garfield himself -- cute and charming at times, but more often lazy and self-serving.

A motion picture so ungainly and awful that only an under-8 child could appreciate it.

Under Peter Hewitt's phoned-in direction, Garfield chugs along like the slow train to Chattanooga.

As someone once said about the "Nancy" comic strip, it is easier to read it than not to read it. If only that were true of this movie, which requires real effort to endure.

Those who get bored by the movie (i.e. everybody), can pass the time by counting the many product placements.

You recall an image of the fat cat on the Trapper Keeper, staring bleakly up at the sky with the subtitled thought bubble, Why me?

It's not much of a story, and director Peter Hewitt seems content to flesh it out with bland staging and characterizations.

Comic strip adaptation is flabby, lazy and blase -- just like its subject (although probably not on purpose).

A soulless and empty movie based on a three-panel comic strip boasting the wit and complexity of a wooden spoon.

... a film without energy and without spirit.

This Garfield doesn't even look like the Garfield we know, love and used to have smashed on our car windows with suction cups.

Todd Gilchrist

All you need to know about this movie is that 'I hate Mondays,' Garfield's memorable comic strip punch line, is way funnier when Puss-in-Boots utters it in Shrek 2.

As a movie star, Garfield is a cat declawed and robbed of his essential, inscrutable charm.

I get bored reading a 'Garfield' strip, and it only takes 10 seconds. Imagine the effect of watching a movie that is just as dull, but 480 times as long.

If you're a fan of Garfield, then I suggest you stay away from the fat cat's big screen debut.

Better just to keep this fat cat suctioned to the car window.
