Cat-astrophic for adults, but kids will love it.

Hewitt's movie isn't without its laughs but it's ultimately a pretty pointless picture.

An innocent way to kill some time.

Garfield is a cool cat with attitude, yet his debut on the big screen falls short by more than a whisker largely due to a script that relies on novelty value rather than fresh ideas.

The comic-strip cat comes to the big screen thanks to some pretty nifty computer animation and -- in a really inspired move -- the voice of Bill Murray

The story is bland and workmanlike--week-old catnip that's lost its bite. What saves it is the animation, which is set amid a live-action world and which is extremely well done.

People who love cats will see their own felines in Garfield. Parents who love neither Garfield nor cats will have a good time nonetheless.

Without Murray, the film would have much less appeal.

It has good laughs, decent writing and is 100% loyal to both the comic and the cartoon, which will leave the diehard fans begging for more.

Film Threat

Garfield remains one of the most shamelessly marketed properties of all time, so the inevitable feature film is merely the logical climax to a product blitz that already includes bowling balls, oven mitts, and a line of Richard Petty-related products.

The strongest messages for adults are that we should purchase and consume...Pepperidge Farm Goldfish and dash off to Petco for all of our kitty's litter and chow needs.

I found nothing endearing, funny, or entertaining about Garfield or the film.

I have always thought of the strip as a quiet cartoon, one based on irony and sly, wry humor. Not so the Garfield movie, which is generally raucous and loud.

Imagine the comic strip as a lone enchilada stretched to feed the whole dinner crowd at Pancho's.

For fans of the comic strip, "Garfield" is a severe disappointment.

Strictly for the kids. Parents will find themselves yawning more often than not.

Better than it has any right to be, thanks to impressive CGI work, some good gags and a note-perfect purrformance by Bill Murray.

This is mediocre moviemaking, not even Bill Murray can save a weak script and weaker special effects.

The result is not so much catnip as catnap.
