The sane among us recognise there’s only so much you can do with a ginger cat suffering from an eating disorder, as far as innovative storylines go. This time, the writers have decided to shame Garfield into action by throwing in a super cat named Garzooka, who claims he needs the tubby tabby’s help to save the world (really?). It also speaks volumes about a film when there’s one actor voicing nine different parts, as in the case of Weller, who not only takes charge of Garfield’s vocals, but also those of the computer voice, a dog, Keith, a Kung Fu Guard, a lawyer, a monster, a guard and the narrator, against Wingert’s comparatively slack role, voicing Jon Arbuckle (Garfield’s owner).

If the studios weren’t going to spend their dollars investing in a few more actors, we’d advise against spending your dirhams on 73 minutes of what we’d bet is just as unentertaining as the first two instalments in the grossly over-stretched franchise.
