Garfield - The Movie Reviews
i love this movie i think this movie is laught out loud hilarious and i tihnk every should enjoy this movie as hes such a likeable character i love the story and the actors and i love the character grafield this movie is enjoyable and funny and completely worth a watch!
I wish they'd never made this movie. Garfield is a comic that in my opinion is impossible to make into a live feature film. The main problem is how to do a convincingly good CGI of the fat, lazy, orange cat with the big eyes?
I think that the biggest problem, besides the fact that the movie was very bad, was the CGI Garfield. It looked awful, not at all realistic although in 2004 the special effects crew had the technology to do wonders with computers. But here, like I said, they had an impossible task to do.
The only positive thing about this movie was the dog that starred as Odie. I liked every scene he (yes, I prefer to call dogs as him or her) was in. He out acted everyone in the movie. I thought that would also be impossible, that an animal would do that, but here it actually happened. Ok, Bill Murray did a decent job as the voice of Garfield and Jennifer Love Hewitt is always nice to look at... But wasn't Odie a beagle in the comic but here he's a Jack Russell terrier?
I've never been a big fan of the comic or the animated series but this movie did so much wrong to Jim Davis legacy. For real fans only.
There are many complaints about Garfield: The Movie. One is that the CGI cat doesn't really look like Garfield. Another is that Jon was always a pathetic bastard that would never hook up with Jennifer Love Hewitt. Another is that Odie is a drooling, partially retarded dog, not Benji.
All that aside, Garfield is a terrible movie. The script is the standard recycled garbage that we've seen hundreds of times. The acting is mediocre at best (even Bill Murray sounds like he doesn't give a damn in his voice overs for the fat cat).
What blows me away is that Bill Murray has put off Ghostbusters 3 for decades while doing garbage like this (and its sequel!)
