The CGI appearance of Garfield is bizarre, but I like the movie otherwise. It's a sweet and entertaining family outing. (First viewing - Late teen years)

Literally only a few writers and directors managed to find a way to fill the entire film with 99% of burp jokes ,bad puns, weird CGI ,advertisings & pointless human characters. It's actually mind-blowing how this film is actually obvious ,clearly because this is bearly anything to do with the comics.

Garfield wasn't meant for live-action because then the same cartoonish drawings and gags from the comic strip won't apply and the film did not contain much of the clever humor that the comic strip is extremely beloved for. But all in all the movie's still faithful to the 1982 half-hour Here Comes Garfield because it comes out like a live-action remake of Here Comes Garfield, even if it lacks faith to the comic strip or the animated series Garfield and Friends.

As a fan of the comic series, it was fairly admirable, but not too terribly surprising on why it had such negative reviews.

It's my guilty pleasure, sure it's stupid but it is funny & sometimes quite memorable. One of my favorite childhood movies.

A kid's movie that doesn't provide anything more than cheep gags and dumb jokes.

While it may not be that close to the comics, this film is still good in its own right, despite what other people may say.

Apart from Bill Murray providing the voice of the fat cat (which was rather inevitable), this is a lacklustre & aimless film

Garfield is a curiously dull adaptation of a beloved cartoon, with hideous CGI, bland acting and product placements.

Garfield is brought to life on the big screen but he's not very lovable. Instead, we get an animated jackass with only the witty humor being anything original to the comic itself. The actors play second fiddle to the animals around them and seem quite bored in most scenes.

The cartoon cat comes to life. I previously purchased this movie on DVD and it is actually not a bad film. It is okay although it could have been a better film. I thought the plot of Garfield was quite good although I do question some of the cast in this film. I like Jennifer Love Hewitt in this film and this is the only film I have seen Breckin Meyer in and I thought he was okay in this film too. However I did not like the role of Stephen Tobolowsky in this film, I thought his acting was pretty bad, there are moments when he was meant to be angry in this film yet he didn't show that. He tended to smile when he was meant to be angry in this film. There were a few other poor actors in this film and I think Garfield may have got better reviews from critics if some of the cast wasn't poorly done. All around I thought Garfield was okay, however I wouldn't say it is a must see film.

Why didn't they make this 2D? Garfield looks like shit. Odie is the wrong dog. Jon was a bigger tool than he was in the comics. Nermal's an adult cat. Liz is flat and boring. Villian was dumb, even by kids movie standards. You can feel the hate in Bill Murray when you watch this movie.
