Garfield Gets Real
serves the child audience well with its simple storyline. The movie does not generate the smiles that the Garfield comic strip does. Knowing this before going prevents disappointment. Now that that is established, the movie moves along fairly well with a predictable story.

Garfield does not want to be a cartoon strip character any longer.
