Garfield goes back to his roots
This is a great story that really takes Garfield back to his humble beginnings in an Italian restaurant.

Garfield is separated from Jon after a battle NOT to visit the vet. Pretty soon he finds himself stranded in the middle of an urban jungle, filled with dangers hitherto unknown to him.

After running into a gang of surly alley cats, Garfield hides out in an old building, where he meets his long, lost mother! After a brief reunion and a trip down memory lane, he meets his large family, who are known for being "mousers" (not Garfield's type).

Later on, the evil cat gang finds Garfield, and a large fight ensues. The good cats win, and Garfield is faced with a dilemma: stay with his newfound family or go home. It has a good ending.

I give this movie a 7 out of 10. Go Garfield!
