Complacent, self-absorbed cat Garfield (voiced by Bill Murray) is jealous of the new addition to his household, a dog named Odie, who is now the center of his owner's attention. In response, Garfield lures Odie out of the house, but then feels guilty when he wanders away and gets lost. Discovering that Odie's in danger, Garfield springs into action with a tummy full of lasagna to save him.

Live-action cat tale has lots of cartoon violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Garfield is a 2004 live-action comedy in which Bill Murray plays the legendary comic book cat. Perhaps the biggest concern is the ridiculous amount of product placement in the movie. At least eight different products are either mentioned by name by the characters, or the products are gratuitously placed in the scenes or, in the case of Wendy's, a commercial for the product is shown on Jon's television. There some cartoonish pratfall violence. Garfield inadvertently sets off elaborate chain reactions leading to shelves and furniture falling over and getting destroyed. While locked up by Animal Control, a despondent Garfield yells to the guards, asking for shoelaces -- presumably to hang himself. A shock collar is used on pets as well as a human, causing them to flip backward and fall. Some name-calling like "butt" and "idiot."
