Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties Reviews

June 19, 2006
There's something kind of strange about a bunch of animals cooking in a kitchen, when many of those animals would normally be getting cooked in a kitchen. But that is the least of this movie's problems.
June 16, 2006
Even for the chubbiest comic cat in captivity, Garfield's onscreen shtick is wearing a bit thin.

The best thing that can be said about Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties is that the movie isn't quite as bad as its name.

Just consider A Tail of Two Kitties more endurable, more a movie than Garfield: The Movie, and you won't be too disappointed.

Over the entire length of the film, I counted four laughs. Thirty minutes in, there was even the sound of some cranky crying, and whines of 'But I don't wanna watch the funny kitty-cat.'

Kids should see Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties. It'll help prepare them for a lifetime of mediocre entertainment ahead.

Connolly, bless him, throws himself heartily into the task of acting opposite a computer-generated cat given to bad puns and flatulence. Everyone else, however, looks mortified, and can you blame them?

It all makes for a relatively painless first hour or so, right up until Garfield's big 'let them eat lasagna' scene.

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

You'll only be attracted to Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties if you're very young, you're very easily entertained, or you just can't get enough of Jim Davis's lasagna-scarfing cartoon cat.

In the second Garfield movie, the indignities are as enormous as the food bills.

Send this one to the litter box.

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

This mangy sequel just isn't up to scratch.
June 15, 2006
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.
June 15, 2006
As in the first film, Garfield spends way too much time boogying to the music of the Black-Eyed Peas, and the slang, catch-phrases, and pop-culture references here all passed their expiration date long ago.

Nothing happens that you haven't seen before, although if you haven't seen it before (you would have to be younger than 3), you might crack a smile or two.

There are some humorous moments -- I stress the word moments -- but they are few and far between.

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.

It was the worst of times, it was the worst of times. Sorry, couldn't help it. With a title like Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties, the bad Dickens puns are irresistible.
June 15, 2006
[The skilled voice actors] only underscore how misconceived the movie is on every other level.
June 14, 2006
Garfield himself (voiced by Bill Murray) is once again strikingly unlikable, a bloated, bingeing fascist.
