Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review:
Bill Murray's voice is the only thing that's not absolutely awful about this frantic flop.

Garfield: The Movie
Garfield (with the voice of Bill Murray), is a smart-aleck cat with an appetite and an attitude. He has an extreme case of jealousy when his human best-friend, Jon Arbuckle (Breckin Meyer), adopts a dog named Odie. Garfield tries to re-establish his turf and eject the interloper, and soon causes Odie to run away. Then, overcome by guilt, he follows the dog to the big city to rescue him from Happy Chapman (Stephen Tobolowsky), a menacing cable access morning TV personality who has dognapped Odie to get a job on network television. Jon and his veterinarian girlfriend, Liz (Jennifer Love Hewitt), are in hot pursuit. There are also two dull but over-long musical interludes that are obvious time-fillers. One, is “New Dog State of Mind,” set to Billy Joel’s ode to NYC. It's never been used to such idiotic ends. There are also some trained animals in the movie, that are much better and more interesting than the cartoon cat. It’s much more fun watching a real dog dance on his hind legs than watching a digital creation do the same trick. You'll also miss Lorenzo Music's TV voice as Garfield. Bill Murray seems to be having fun, but doesn't add nearly as much to the film as Eddie Murphy did in Shrek. Only a six year old will enjoy this one.
