I'm the king of the cul-de-sac. That's what I'm talking about. Jon and I have everything I could ever want. Food in the fridge. Cable and satellite. And don't forget, lasagna. That's right. It's good to be king.

If you like Garfield, you'll enjoy it, otherwise...
This is nothing more and nothing less than a typical sequel. Meaning it is very similar to and also slightly worse than the original. Having said that, I cannot but repeat what I mentioned in my review of 'Garfield 1': This is an entertaining movie that doesn't aspire to be anything else. Garfield's characterization is very good, albeit rather simplistic. Bill Murray is the one who actually gives Garfield his soul, he once again does such a great job with the voice, it's perfect! On the other hand, once again I found the main flaw of this film to be in the fact that the director concentrated on making a movie for kids, rather than for adults which would be more befitting for a Garfield movie. The plot is so simplistic it borders on retarded, and so is most of the "humans" acting.
Thankfully though, Garfields' character and his gags and lines (as well as the excellent computer animation) lift the movie up just enough for it to be on an acceptable level of decent, watchable entertainment.
