This time, Garfield the crotchety cat and Odie the friendly mutt secretly travel to London to surprise their master, Jon, who is in England to propose to his girlfriend, Liz. Garfield hates not being the center of Jon's life and plans to stop Jon from marrying Liz. When he gets to London, however, Garfield accidentally switches places with a look-alike cat named Prince. Prince has just inherited a castle from Lady Carlyle, who loved animals. Garfield gets the royal treatment at the castle, except for Lord Dargis, who is next in line to inherit the estate. Dargis tries to do away with Garfield so he can build a resort and feed the estate's animal menagerie to the guests. Garfield must join with the other animals to stop Dargis while Odie helps Jon find Garfield.
A TAIL OF TWO KITTIES has something for everyone. The talking animals and physical humor will please younger children. Teenagers and adults will enjoy the wisecracks from Bill Murray as the voice of Garfield. Billy Connolly is fun as the villainous Lord Dargis. The romance between Breckin Meyer and Jennifer Love Hewitt as Jon and Liz is sweet.
The new GARFIELD movie doesn't focus on sending great moral messages. There is a good message about standing up to bullies, but also a few light scatological jokes and some light foul language. For example, Odie urinates on a soldier's leg and Lord Dargis says, "Good Lord!" a few times.
Garfield is a sarcastic, demanding and disobedient cat, but he ends up doing the right thing. Most of the time.
