Garfield returns in “A Tale of Two Kitties”, a sequel to the 2004 hit.
This time Jon, Garfield’s owner (played once again by Brenken Myer), wants to propose to his girlfriend Liz (Jennifer Love Hewitt). But first she has to go to London on a business trip.
Jon follows her there to surprise her but Garfield and Odie hide in his suitcase and when Garfield gets loose in England he accidentally switches places with a British cat who looks just like him. Garfield gets to live like royalty. But he and all the other animals at the palace have to fight-off an evil man who’s looking to take over.
Even though Bill Murray does another great job as the voice of Garfield this is not as good a film as the first one. However there are several funny scenes, including when Garfield teaches all his new animal friends how to make lasagna.
When I originally saw the movie there were ladies in the back of the theater laughing very hard. I laughed medium.
On The Official Kid Critic Report Card, “Garfield 2: A Tale of Two Kitties” gets a C+.
It’s rated PG for some crude burping humor but other than that it’s o.k. for everybody.
