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 - Furry Feline Fun

There's a ton of great animal antics throughout Garfield: The Movie - dog chases cat, cat eats mouse, cat and dog rock out to a little Black Eyed Peas. Yup, there's a really fun scene where Garfield and Odie break out on the dance floor to their fave tune, Hey Mamma. It's definitely an entertaining flick.

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? The only downside might be that the 'rents will want to tag along to this one cuz they grew up with Garfield, after all.

Garfield: The Movie - DVD Features

With the Garfield: The Movie DVD you get a ton of cool extras, including commentary from director Peter Hewitt and producer John Davis. The really neat thing about this DVD though, is that you get sneak peeks for a bunch of new flicks that are coming out. Also, the DVD comes complete with some great behind-the-scenes features.

Garfield: The Movie - Bottom Line
Garfield: The Movie is an action-packed adventure starring a fat, lazy cat and a rambunctious, eager-to-please puppy. How could you not want to see it? Check it out for a good laugh and some grooving in your seat.

I'm pretty sure the reason a lot of people read the book was because 'everyone else was reading it,' and that is the reason I looked into Hunger Games as well, I won't lie. Don't get me wrong, I liked the Hunger Games and Catching Fire, but Mockingjay was a little boring. Not much happened until the very end, and by then my brain shut down. So, no.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN NOTHING HAPPENED? So many of peoples fav characters died! Peeta gets messed up in the head! Katness is struggling! I mean how was it boring? Well ok i guess it was your opinion but still.
