Garfield: The Movie

, , <h1>Garfield: The Movie ★½ 2004 (PG)</h1><p>The best thing that this escapee from the comic pages has going for it is that fat, naptaking, lasagna-loving orange cat Garfield (a CGI-creation) is perfectly voiced by the sardonic Murray. The lazy feline dominates nice guy owner Jon (Meyer) and is appalled when life in paradise is threatened by the arrival of excitable mongrel Odie, who arrives via Garfield's sexy vet, Dr. Liz (Hewitt). Naturally, Garfield does his best to get rid of his doggy nuisance until Odie winds up in the clutches of nasty TV show host Happy Chapman (Tobolowsky), who's a decidedly unhappy guy. So it's Garfield to the rescue! Despite the daily comic strip, Garfield's long past his cultural prime, so it's a mystery how he made it to the big screen, especially in this unfunny, slapstick exercise in tedium. <b>80m/C DVD</b> . <i>US</i> Breckin Meyer, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Stephen Tobolowsky, Mark Christopher-Lawrence, Evan Arnolds Christopher; <b><i>D:</i></b> Peter Hewitt; <b><i>W:</i></b> Joel Cohen, Alec Sokolow; <b><i>C:</i></b> Dean Cundey; <b><i>M:</i></b> Christophe Beck; <b><i>V:</i></b> Bill Murray, Debra Messing, Brad Garrett, Alan Cumming, David Eigenberg, Nick Cannon, Jimmy Kimmel.</p>

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
