Move over Garfield cuz you're not the only pet in town. Just as Garfield is getting his owner, Jon Arbuckle, trained to cater to his every want and need, Jon brings home a dog! Odie is cute, cuddly and he knows how to do a ton of tricks. Suddenly Jon is paying way more attention to Odie than to his old, fat cat and that makes Garfield really mad. So what happens when you throw a dog and a cat together and make them fight for the attention of their owner? Read on to find out!
Garfield: The Movie Comes to Life
If you think really far back, you might be able to remember watching the Garfield cartoon on TV. Well, Garfield: The Movie has all the same lovable characters but the only difference is they're no longer in cartoon form. The only animated character in the movie is Garfield (who is voiced by Bill Murray). Breckin Myer has stepped up to fill the shoes of Jon Arbuckle and Jennifer Love Hewitt plays Liz, Garfield's vet and the girl that Jon's been crushin' on. Even Odie is played by a real dog. It's a live action flick with all the cheesy comedy of a Saturday morning cartoon. Bring on the frying pans and anvils cuz these guys can take it.

Garfield: The Movie - Hairballs
There's really not a bad thing to say about Garfield: The Movie. There are a couple of parts that you may roll your eyes at cuz it's just so cheesy, but isn't that what old cartoons are all about?
