GARFIELD: THE MOVIE (Theatrical Release USA 2004)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Garfield: The Movie relies on the acting talents of Breckin Meyer (Jon) and voicing talents of Bill Murray (Garfield). The movie works straightforwardly with an orderly presentation. The live casting of Odie doesn’t seem to quite match the animated character Odie, but it works. This movie is the first live action film of two Garfield movies. The film is simple afternoon entertainment fare for the young teen audience.

Garfield enters an adventure quite outside his normal routine.
