But, after all, if you just want some fun for a while, this movie will entertain you. He accepted the role, briefly skimming through the script. However, an animal control officer catches Garfield mistaking him as a stray. Garfield looks amazing, almost identical to what he looked like in the cartoon. Garfield gets into the broadcast tower via the air vents but he is blown around violently. A sequel, , was released in June 2006. I knew the movie would cater for the younger viewer, but i felt that it went overboard a little, and this was detrimental to the films enjoyment.
It's times like this that remind me where I got my sense of humor. At least Pooky looked the same! I love this movie because it doesn't require you to think. Though in the case of Liz it's probably a good thing, there aren't that many characters that look like they did in the comic strip. Garfield regains the respect of his animal friends as a hero. Well, I can't say that. The movie is, sadly, 10 years overdue. The film was released on a 3-disc on October 11, 2011.
However, Chapman chases them and eventually corners the two in a suitcase area. After engaging in an effort to find a good review - much harder than I ever imagined it would be - and finding the movie listed at the bottom of the barrel, I felt almost an obligation to go see this on opening day - either to prove the critics wrong, or to get fodder for a scathing letter to Jim Davis. His performance is a hit. I adored Jennifer Love-Hewitt in the film. In a film mostly involved with plot, there are two scenes that are irrelevant but charming. Jim Davis should be ashamed for allowing his wonderful creation to me made into such a lousy movie. Thye kept Odie the moronic but lovable dog.
When Odie comes out to comfort Garfield, he gets inside and locks Odie out on purpose. The problem, admittedly, is what some critics have said: Garfield is old and busted. If you liked 'The Son of The Mask', you will probably love this movie. When Garfield comes back, he accidentally hits a ball in frustration, accidentally causing a chain reaction that trashes Jon's house. However, there are several redeeming merits, the most obvious one being Oadie the dog.
The problem is with the supporting cast who look, by and large, not like their animated counterparts. None of the characters really make an impressive appearance, not even Bill Murray's voice talent can change this. The movie doesn't deserve to be ranked where it is by the critics. I think that a comedy of situations based on all Garfield's countless books could be more interesting, his loyal legion of admires will certainly agree with my point of view. They kept Liz the vet, which brings so much more to Jon.
What happened to Jon the nerd? Garfield is a 2-D medium, either on the comics page or on animated cels. It's a really Bad version of all Garfield films what ever made! So when they took this movie and turned it into a gooey, toddler pleasing fest where they all live happily ever after, what were they thinking? Bill Murray is great, his delivery is catatonically laid-back and dry. Aside from Jon, Garfield maintains an unlikely friendship with a helpful mouse,. It bought shame to Garfield and I cannot believe Jim Davis let them make it. Garfield sneaks into the train system control room and frantically switches the tracks, leading to an impending train wreck.
I think it's a very cute movie, beings that I grew up reading Garfield comic strips and watching Garfield and friends. Breckin Meyer plays the nerdy Jon very well and acts like the pet loving dork that we loved so much in the cartoon. This movie takes place when Jon first gets Odie. Nothing in the movie is something new or memorable. That part is actually in the movie, and lasts for the entire duration of the song. While I can accept the whole high-school- crush of Jon and Liz on each other something definitely not in the comic strip , the payoff might have been better had they not kissed after the dog show.
I still love the character. Finally, I went out to L. I don't know why so many people are hard against it. Like I said before, I don't see the point in making live-action versions of cartoons. Personally, as a 20-year-old adult male who enjoys kids' movies like Finding Nemo and whatnot, I thought it was alright. The computer engineered Garfield doesn't appeal and the other, real pets are badly chosen. There are some other things they have changed.
Garfield himself is a terrible copy of the comic, plus let's face it, he's as ugly as sin. In theaters, it included an short film,. He thinks maybe using a dog might bring him national exposure, tells the little old lady he is Odie's owner, and as a training strategy, gives him electrical shocks from a cruel collar. You wouldn't find Calvin and Hobbes behaving this way. The problem is with the supporting cast who look, by and large, not like their animated counterparts.
Garfield looks like neither a cartoon nor a real cat, but like something in between -- plump, squinty and satisfied. The Garfield calendar on my desk still gives me laughs. Bill Murray only took the role as Garfield because he mistook the screenplay writer's name, Joel Cohen, for Joel Coen of. Bill Murray is perfect to play him and his voice is similar to Lorenzo Music. The plot arc is not necessarily departed from all of Garfield.
