Even Bill Murray, who provides the cantankerous cat's voice, can do little with the material at his disposal and when he bursts into song, Lost in Translation seems like nine lifetimes ago.

I felt the same misery, despair, offense and nausea while watching this film as I did The Cat in the Hat.

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.

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.

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.
September 16, 2005
Breckin Meyer and Jennifer Love Hewitt are perfectly matched. Neither of them evinces any shred of charm or talent throughout the entire film.

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.

... this is an embarassing family film ...

I found nothing endearing, funny, or entertaining about Garfield or the film.
September 28, 2004
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.
September 16, 2004
Imagine the comic strip as a lone enchilada stretched to feed the whole dinner crowd at Pancho's.
September 5, 2004
For fans of the comic strip, "Garfield" is a severe disappointment.
August 8, 2004
Strictly for the kids. Parents will find themselves yawning more often than not.
