How We Determine Our Grades

Garfield isn’t the only character to feel misplaced when someone new comes along. Woody the Cowboy loses his place atop the bed when Andy gets a new action figure for his birthday in Toy Story. Fur flies when the family pets fight for world supremacy in Cats & Dogs. In All Dogs Go to Heaven 2, a devilish cat disguised as a dog tries to outwit an unsuspecting mutt into making a pact.

Home Video Extra Features

Capitalizing on the publicity opportunity, Garfield the Movie pounces onto DVD one week before his sequel Garfield’s a Tale of Two Kitties howls into theaters. If you are a big fan of the fat cat, then feast ‘til your full on the bonus features of this 2-disc Perrrfect Collector’s Edition. Tidbits include the documentaries Garfield: Bringing the Cat to Life, Garfield’s Presentation Reel and Pick of the Litter: The History of Garfield. If you’d rather frolic with the feline, check out a selection of games (like Find Odie and Lasagna From Heaven), piece together ten jigsaw puzzles, or draw and print your own strip with the Garfield Comic Creator. You can also take a peek behind-the-scenes at how the professional created the animated star, check out seventeen deleted scenes and catch the Baha Men’s music video Holla! Audio tracks are available in English (5.1 Dolby Surround), Spanish (Dolby Surround) and French (Dolby Surround), with subtitles in English, Spanish and French.
