Garfield Gets Real Reviews
Anyway, the movie involves Garfield [voiced by the god of cartoon voices Jim Cummings.] and Odie [voiced by Greg Berger] getting readyto go to work. WAIT WHAT? Garfield and Odie go to work? Aren't they just pets? Well, instead of the usual Garfield universe [I'll try my best to explain this, 'cause its really complicated] Garfield lives in a universe where all comic strip characters live. Basically, its their daily job to 'film comic strips' and ship them tonewspapers around the world. I have to admit, that's mildly creative, but, well, let's keep going. Garfield is depressed because he's sick of being in a comic strip, WHAT?!?! Dude, you have an awesome job! You don't have to pay taxes, do homework, or anything, just walk in, take a few picture, grab a giant paycheck and walk out! Well, when Garfield gets to work [accompioned by Odie and Jon] we meet the other comic strip characters. Calvin and Hobbs? NO! Pearls Before Swine? NO! The Buckets? NO! Instead we get a group of characters from unreal comic strips. First off there is Billy Bear and Randy Rabbit. A talking bear and a talking rabbit...let's hear it for origionality. So, yeah, after a comic if filmed [which takes about all of 45 seconds of a day, so I can't see why Garfield is whining], it is sucked into a portal to the 'real world' so he can expierence it. Sadly, Garfiled can't find a way back inAd if he can't get back in time, his comic strip will be dscontinued.
When this movie isn't being boring, it's being silly, due to its stupidity. All I can say is its time the fat cat put something back: this movie in the garbage.
This movie's first scene is when the lazy kitten himself wakes up from sleep. Garfield completes his daily routine, then out to the comic center to make the funnies. While on the job, Garfield wishes he could take a break from his job and become a real cat. When Garfield stumbles into the real world, he's amazed. From this storyline, Garfield Gets Real spawned 2 sequels.
The story is what all Garfield fans have dreamed of, since they weren't satisfied with the original Garfield movie in 2004. This movie was not the big dream. In fact, Cartoon Network saw how "great" the show is and made an awful cartoon based off it.
The acting makes you want to drown kittens, no joke. Garfield sounds like he is on a drug high and posessed by Satan. All the newspaper comic characters in the movie sound even worse, making you never to read the newspaper again. Garfield Gets Real tells you a clear message why Garfield's voice actor should never be replaced. This movie will make the Newspaper Comics section haunt your dreams.
The DVD cover says that Garfield Gets Real uses "amazing CGI animation". Garfield Gets Real looks like a bad game on the Nintendo Gamecube. How much time was put into this movie was awfully short, only making the animation for the movie in less than a few minutes. The quality of Garfield Gets Real will leave you crawling on all fours.
Garfield Gets Real was a straight-to-DVD release, but that factor still makes it a terrible movie. The DVD features are downright bad.
It was a huge mistake for PAWS Inc. to make a worse movie than the first two Garfields. We thought we had enough of this cartoony cat in 2007, but PAWS just wanted to make Garfield Gets Real into a separate movie franchise and a TV show. Nice job, Garfield.
why kids love this film so much is a mystery, because it is dire.
i asked my daughter why she loves it so much. Her answer?
"I don't know."
"Garfield Gets Real" is a 3D animation about Garfield, being a fictional character, getting lost in the real world.
Honestly, I don't know how Garfield can go "Huh, what is this strange place?" when he gets lost in a world with characters that look exactly like him and the people in his world. I'm not sure if bad 3D quality makes it look that way, but even that Siamese cat, his awkard dog friend and female cat-dog friend Garfield meets in the real world are more a cartoon than he is.
Plus they both "talk"; how can that freak be more real than Garfield? Just because everyone knows he appears in comics in the newspaper?
It's not a movie I completely hate, I'm a Garfield whore. The basic plot is just great, and it could have been a very popular movie if was performed right.
