Garfield movie Review !

Since its creation in the 1970s, "Garfield" has become one of the most recognizable cartoons ever made; the lazy fat cat managed against all expectations to become a fan favorite thanks to his attitude and love for food and sleep, which separates him very much from many other comic strips of its age, and this success allowed the characters to have its own TV series and even his own live-action adaptation. Now, Garfield returns to the big screen with a more conventional animated movie that still has the chance to be charming and fun.

Personally, I never really liked Garfield, at least the version that was introduced to me as a child in his animated TV series; I found him annoying and just plain dull, which is why it was shocking to me that I had fun with The Garfield Movie, maybe because this version of the character is a lot less boring in general, and has a lot more personality than someone who simply just wants to eat and sleep. So, this is the first time I have had fun with Garfield.

This is not to say that The Garfield Movie is a masterpiece, not at all. In reality, it is a very standard CGI animated movie for the times, and it doesn’t push the envelope in any shape or form, but it doesn’t have to; it only needs to be fun, and that it is, even when the script uses a structure and a storyline that is very predictable and sadly doesn’t allow for any big surprises or revelations. Of course, this comes from the point of view of an adult, but for kids, the script’s development might be a lot more impactful.

Nevertheless, both kids and adults will enjoy the humor in the same manner. This is a pretty funny movie in a way that feels innocent and simple but effective, and this level of success in this aspect of the film is definitely a combination of the voice actors’ performances and the jokes themselves, which range from bright to excellent examples of physical comedy.

The Garfield Movie will take Garfield on a journey outside his home, and this development is enough to create a lot of funny situations, as Garfield is definitely domesticated, and being in the wild is just not his thing. The script introduces many funny characters along the way, and while none of them will become instant classics, they serve the movie well by changing the mood and putting Garfield into more uncomfortable situations.

The Garfield Movie is filled with stars in its voice roles, and at the center of it is Chris Pratt, who recently had fantastic success in the field thanks to the Super Mario Bros. Movie, one of the most successful movies at the box office last year. Here in The Garfield Movie, Pratt delivers a performance that is more in line with what we are used to from him, while in the Mario Bros. Movie, he was a lot more restrained; here, he is free to go into his charismatic self and give Garfield a much-needed dose of charm without sacrificing his lazy attitude.

Samuel L. Jackson also does a great job as Vic, Garfield’s father, and the other significant characters in the movie. Jackson’s presence is always appreciated; he does his best to reach Pratt’s charm and does it effortlessly. However, it is Ving Rhames in the role of Otto, a bull, who steals every scene he is in. For such a minor role, his character really makes an impression.

However, the quality of the animation feels a bit simple compared to the work done in many other animated films. It would be insane to ask for something like what has been done in Spider-Man Across the SpiderVerse, and it wouldn’t fit anyway, but the way the movie moves and is framed in every show feels very safe. It would have been interesting to see something more daring here and there, but it is a nitpick, and it won’t affect the movie’s general enjoyment.

The Garfield Movie is a fun time at the theater and will be pretty entertaining for kids and adults alike. Still, sadly, it probably won’t become a classic in the same way The Emperor’s New Groove did, not because it is terrible, but because it is too safe, and it doesn’t dare to go the extra mile to create something truly memorable, nevertheless, for the time you will be inside the theater watching it, it will be the charm and laughs to your life.
