    Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties is actually funnier and more charming than the first film.

    When the humans have the sense to keep quiet, and the animals are doing their shtick, there's great fun to be had.
  3. To borrow and slightly emend the words of Shakespeare: That cat will mew, but this dog will have the day.

    Murray's gift for imperious indifference is the only reason to sit through a second for-kids-only movie about Garfield the lasagna-loving cat.
  5. In a town as status-conscious as Hollywood, the embarrassment of two "Garfield" movies on your résumé must sting like the Dickens.

    It comes off like a coughed-up furball: a wan rehash with too many elements of the hard-to-swallow 2004 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 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 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 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
