Garfield's: A Tale of Two Kitties
Bill Murray, voices the lasagna-loving kitty, in this latest version of Mark Twain's "The Prince and the Pauper." Garfield is the wisecracking cat who easily manipulates Jon (Breckin Meyer "Herbie Fully Loaded"), his affable but clueless owner. When Jon attempts to propose to veterinarian girlfriend Liz (Jennifer Love Hewitt "I Know What You Did Last Summer"), Garfield deftly sabotages his plans for a romantic evening. But Jon isn't easily stopped. He impulsively flies to London while Liz attends a Royal Animal Conservatory conference, to try once more to pop the question. Naturally, Garfield stows away in Jon's suitcase, with Odie, Jon's spirited but mute pet dog, also tagging along. Through a fortuitous twist of plot contrivances, Garfield winds up trading places with his exact look-alike: Prince (voiced by Tim Curry "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"), a singularly spoiled tabby who has inherited a vast fortune and palatial estate. While Prince slums with commoners Jon and Liz, Garfield enjoys a life of luxury under the dutiful care of Smithee (Ian Abercrombie "Wild Wild West"), a faithful butler, and Winston (Bob Hoskins "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"), an obsequious bulldog. Trouble is, that his luxurious life may be cut short. The snidely duplicitous Lord Dargis (Billy Connolly "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events"), next in line to inherit the estate, is plotting a catastrophic end for Prince (Garfield). Director Tim Hill ("Muppets From Space") keeps the movie clipping along at a pleasant pace, and there are even some pretty funny scenes. Younger children should be amused for an hour and a quarter. Adults, somewhat less.
