Garfield - The Movie Reviews

December 24, 2010
Cat-astrophic for adults, but kids will love it.
April 29, 2009
An innocent way to kill some time.

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

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

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.
August 7, 2004
Better than it has any right to be, thanks to impressive CGI work, some good gags and a note-perfect purrformance by Bill Murray.

I recommend it as a family film that kids will enjoy and adults will find unexpectedly pleasant.
June 13, 2004
A delightful feline festival.

The comic strip hasn't been funny in years, but Bill Murray rescues the movie from the same fate (with) his purringly petulant voice performance.
June 11, 2004
Garfield: The Movie is irresistible even though it isn't very good. It gets by on goodwill alone.
June 11, 2004
A modest family film that'll be catnip for kids. Still, there's just enough Garfield 'tude (and Murray wit) to keep adults from scratching the furniture.
June 11, 2004
Perfectly watchable.
June 11, 2004
An amusing film that won't disappoint fans of the long-running comic strip.
June 11, 2004
I don't know who had the idea that Bill Murray would be the right actor to do Garfield's voice, but the casting is inspired.

Il ne faut pas y chercher du grand cinéma mais rien de plus qu'un divertissement honnête aussitôt oublié.
June 10, 2004
What looked like a cheap, quick knockoff of a classic comic strip and cartoon actually captures the tone just right.
June 10, 2004
Garfield: The Movie has the same slapstick/sophisticate tone as its print counterpart.
June 10, 2004
It's all about Murray, who plays Garfield like he's that old lounge singer from Saturday Night Live
June 10, 2004
With his acerbic wit, masterful way of using vocal intonations and attitude, Murray shows why he is the only person who can make Garfield come to life.

...[the movie] doesn't completely suck ... thanks primarily to Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen's script and Bill Murray's voice work.
