  • Nothing really works here, and nobody seems to have put in a huge amount of effort, except maybe the marketing department -- there are many product placements. show more

  • However terrific Murray is, if Antonio Banderas, mellifluous voice of Puss-in-Boots in "Shrek 2," went paw to claw with Garfield, Puss would definitely triumph. show more

  • Thanks to that dog-torture element, Garfield may be too upsetting for younger kids. Meanwhile, older kids (let alone parents) will want to put this movie behind them like yesterday's hairball. show more
