The computer animation of the two cats is once again excellent, but the novelty has worn off.

When the hero of a movie is so greedy, obnoxious and selfish that you find yourself rooting for the bunny-hunting bad guy, something is off in a fundamental way.

after the atrocity that was Garfield: The Movie, I find myself much more forgiving and able to lower my expectations to the point this is at least watchable

A lively sense of the ridiculous and grounding in fantasy makes the Garfield sequel chortling and fluffy fun - a nicely ladled script that dishes out a case of mistaken identity, talking animals and Fawlty Tower-esque Billy Connolly

Your kids may beg and plead with you to take them to Garfield 2, but when they become teenagers you'll get the blame for acquiescing.

It's innocuous, knockabout stuff with the usual touristic London rather garishly photographed.

Yet another Hollywood kids' film subscribing to the offensive stereotype that Britain is peopled with aristocrats who live on vast estates and are waited on by a devoted and subservient staff.

A lazily plotted, disappointing sequel with very few laughs but Murray's comic performance ensures that it's just about watchable.

It's exactly like the comic strip that inspired it: colorless, inoffensive, and wholly forgettable.

It's too bad that curiosity didn't kill this particular cat. However, the rest of us will find more stimulating time mindlessly playing with a ball of yarn.

The first film was one of the worst movies I've ever seen, its sequel though is simply a dull family feature. An improvement I guess

Kids might enjoy some of the routine lowbrow slapstick and zany animal antics on display here. Adults will find it tedious going.

This movie is mediocrity incarnate. Watching it I felt brain cells leaping to their deaths like so many lemmings.

A pathetic little minstrel show meant for kids, but good for no one.

It's really unnerving to have to sit through a second Garfield when the first was just so excruciating. But alas, here we are again--and now there's two of them. Joy.

There's something kind of strange about a bunch of animals cooking in a kitchen, when many of those animals would normally be getting cooked in a kitchen. But that is the least of this movie's problems.
