A lively sense of the ridiculous and grounding in fantasy makes the Garfield sequel chortling and fluffy fun - a nicely ladled script that dishes out a case of mistaken identity, talking animals and Fawlty Tower-esque Billy Connolly

Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties is actually funnier and more charming than the first film.

While there are few surprises, the sweet sensibility dashed with Mr. Murray's acerbic delivery of Garfield makes an appealing mix.

It's fast, it's moderately amusing and it will keep the kids giggling for a quick 80 minutes.

Good kitty! Superior in every way to its underwhelming predecessor, Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties is a genuinely clever kidpic that should delight moppets, please parents -- and maybe tickle a few tweens.

I've always had a soft spot for Garfield, and this may account, at least in part, for the fact that I enjoyed a lot of this movie. When the humans have the sense to keep quiet, and the animals are doing their shtick, there's great fun to be had.

The computer animation of the two cats is once again excellent, but the novelty has worn off.

When the hero of a movie is so greedy, obnoxious and selfish that you find yourself rooting for the bunny-hunting bad guy, something is off in a fundamental way.

after the atrocity that was Garfield: The Movie, I find myself much more forgiving and able to lower my expectations to the point this is at least watchable

Your kids may beg and plead with you to take them to Garfield 2, but when they become teenagers you'll get the blame for acquiescing.

It's innocuous, knockabout stuff with the usual touristic London rather garishly photographed.

Yet another Hollywood kids' film subscribing to the offensive stereotype that Britain is peopled with aristocrats who live on vast estates and are waited on by a devoted and subservient staff.

A lazily plotted, disappointing sequel with very few laughs but Murray's comic performance ensures that it's just about watchable.

Not to be catty, but did we need another Garfield movie?

It's exactly like the comic strip that inspired it: colorless, inoffensive, and wholly forgettable.

It's too bad that curiosity didn't kill this particular cat. However, the rest of us will find more stimulating time mindlessly playing with a ball of yarn.
