best movie i've ever seen.


This is one of the few movies I've ever seen where the whole audience broke into spontaneous, loud applause a third of the way in.


what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.


Yeah, I said it! This is another bad movie adaptation of a classic cartoon along with the ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNK franchise. How this ''movie'' has an overall rating of 5,0 is beyond me! Is BAD beyond words, even for animal lovers. At least the two FLINTSTONES live action movies look like THE GODFATHER compared to this abomination!All the characters are obnoxious, and in the way you want to kill 'em all rather than watching them, and what about Garfield? He is the most obnoxious character you can ever put in a 90 minute movie. He is fat, lazy, a trouble-maker, and a cat that doesn't eat mice? REALLY? YOU EXPECT ME TO BELIEVE THIS? Plus I hoped the dogs at the dog show would have eaten him, he is so unbearable! I respect Bill Murray, and loved his movies, but I'll never forgive him for THIS! (same goes with Christopher Lloyd for his appearence in THE OOGIELOVES IN THE BIG BALLOON ADVENTURE).Seriously, who taught that Breckin Meyer could act? I would have picked even a trained chimpanzee from a circus or a parrot instead of Breckin Meyer. He is not funny in the slightest, and every time Garfield does something he just stands around like a bumbling idiot! Seriously, who can stand a guy like him?This is another movie that belongs to the level of s**t, along with SON OF THE MASK, the two BABY GENIUSES, EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC, SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS and MANOS THE HANDS OF FATE. Every time you look at them you want to burn the TV (or the computer) with fire after trowing gasoline at them!I rate this pile of garbage one because IMDB doesn't allow the zero rating.All parents around the world: DON'T LET YOUR KIDS WATCH THIS PAINFUL DISASTER OF A MOVIE! IT IS THAT BAD! Instead let your kids watch something better like FINDING NEMO, THE GODFATHER or even TWELVE ANGRY MEN! Or better take your kids out for a stroll on the beach or even let them play videogames! It's better than watch this movie that deserves to be in the Bottom 100!!

This is a good example of a movie that should have never been made. I don't understand why Hollywood chooses to make movies that are just plain not funny. I guess they are able to make a quick buck off of something that takes little to no thought, however, if they would just put forth a little more effort they might have been able to come up with something really good that makes them even more money in the long run. "Garfield" has almost no story. You will sit through this film completely bored for almost all of it. But that is not even the biggest problem. The biggest problem is that it just does not work. The animated Garfield character does not flow with the rest of the live action. The characters don't work at all. John is terrible. Whoever Jennifer Love Hewitt is supposed to be is very lame. The mouse doesn't fit as he should and it is hard to find words to describe how bad Odie comes off. I mean, I am all for taking something classic, such as Garfield, and tweaking it to portray it in a different light, however this goes far beyond that.Another big flaw with this film is how unfunny it is. How many variations of the joke, "I have tags, but I left them in my other fur" have you heard in your lifetime? It really makes you cringe. And this film is peppered with that sort of thing.The transition from the comic strip to the 1990's cartoon was done so well. Why was this such a disaster? And why would Bill Murray choose to lend his voice to this atrocity? At least he recognizes the mistake he made in the film "Zombieland".Don't see this movie. Let your kids watch the old cartoon instead of this movie. If will ultimately save some of their brain cells.


Annoying for adults; boring for children. This cat movie is a real dog.There's no story, and no plot. What works in the comic strip is torturous as a movie. Garfield spends 90 minutes or so of your time spewing mocking remarks about his companions, the hapless John Arbuckle and Odie the dimwitted dog. Odie and John stand there and take it, just making dopey looks amidst the poorly rendered animation. Odie is a real animal, while Garfield is animated; this is awkward, and makes no sense. They have one thing in common, though: neither of them is interesting or endearing in any way. Jennifer Love Hewitt (before she advised dead people in Ghost Whisperer), shows up every once in a while, also doing not much of anything. There's no identity with the characters, no fun, no involvement in whatever was going on (which wasn't much). Bill Murray impersonates the late Lorenzo Music as the jaded, apathetic, and sarcastic Garfield voice pretty well. But it was a much funnier routine when Music did Carlton the doorman, an offstage character that was never seen. We all would have been better off if Garfield had never been seen, either.
