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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
