    Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties is actually funnier and more charming than the first film.
  2. The stellar array of British talent (voicing the various farm animals) and Murray (whom one suspects has rewritten Garfield's lines to be Murray-esque) give Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties all its energy and make the human actors -- even comedian Connolly -- look and sound like square panels in a two-dimensional comic strip.
  3. 50
    Two Kitties marks a considerable improvement over its predecessor. It's faster paced and the filmmakers wisely shift the focus away from bland owner Breckin Meyer and onto a menagerie of chattering animals.
  4. This lifeless, talky, family-oriented feature never manages to rise to the occasion of its witty title.
  5. 38
    Though Murray and Curry gamely deliver some chuckle-worthy one-liners along the way, they're mostly leashed to material as moldy and uninspired as the "Jeffersons" theme song.
  6. 38
    Something about the sequel, Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties, doesn't seem nearly as obnoxious as the original.
  7. A Tail of Two Kitties couldn't care less about its human principals, and all it wants its animals to do is air-guitar to "Cat Scratch Fever" and wear silly sunglasses.

    Garfield is back. But this time, in double: it just so happens that in London, there lives another fat yellow cat, called Prince, and althoughGarfield is back. But this time, in double: it just so happens that in London, there lives another fat yellow cat, called Prince, and although he doesn't hate Mondays, he is quite pampered as well.

    Back home, Garfield's owner Jon is mustering the courage to ask the love of his life, Liz, to marry him. His pet cat doesn't feel like this should happen, and to aid Garfield in his quest to stop the inevitable from happening, something fortunate occurs: Liz is invited to London as a speaker.

    Unfortunately Jon takes off after her to pop the question, and of course Garfield tags along - Odie in tow.

    In the meanwhile, in London, Prince inherits the entire castle and estate of his late owner, and to get what is rightfully his, the late owner's closest human relative, Lord Dargis, plans on getting rid of the cat that is standing between him and his future plans for the estate.

    Garfield and Prince get mixed up, of course, and neither of them is too much in their element in their new lives at first. Prince eventually falls in love with lasagna and Jon's affection for his pets, and Garfield finds that being real royalty has its perks.

    The movie isn't all that funny, and especially near the end the humor is over the top, bordering to ridiculous.

    Garfield and Prince stand out from the rest, being the animated cats in the middle of the real animals.

    All in all the movie isn't bad, but they put a bit too much into it, especially when it comes to the animals and the chaos they create.

    I recently watched it on TV, right after the first. Not as sophomoric as the first one, nor as campy, but still lacks what makes the comicsI recently watched it on TV, right after the first. Not as sophomoric as the first one, nor as campy, but still lacks what makes the comics funny: a brain. The parody is long dated, and lacks any satire that the comics possess. The acting is retarded at best. Especially Jennifer Love Hewitt. The romance is supposed to be tumultuous and funny. Instead it makes me want to s**t and vomit at the same time. Expand

    Okay, so the first Garfield movie already sucked enough, so they come back with a second one to make the audiences feel like committing Okay, so the first Garfield movie already sucked enough, so they come back with a second one to make the audiences feel like committing suicide even more? Urgh! If I can say anything about this movie to the people who feel like seeing it, you have to be 4-10 to actually enjoy it. Expand
