Good for young children
27 December 2018 | by caitlinmarieangeloSee all my reviews

When I was younger, I loved this movie. I watched it on repeat all the time and it always entertained me. I found the disc today and decided to watch it again for old times sake. The experience... is not what I remembered. Watching it now, I realise how flawed it is. For a Garfield movie, the jokes fall rather flat. The animation is almost terrifying in some moments and it's rather boring overall. So, I wouldn't say it's terrible. I'd say I grew out of this film around the age of eight, so therefore this is a movie for young kids only. Pre-teens and up will find little to no enjoyment while sitting through this, but overall it's not the most unbearable thing your child can make you sit through.
