IT WILL DO PRETTY GOOD IN THE BOX OFFICE BUT IT CAN'T BE THAT GOOD

LOL! I'm holding out about as much hope for this one as I did for Cat in the Hat. Breckin Meyer + J Love + Bill Murray = all the earmarks of a disaster.
On the flip side, it could be better than Scooby-Doo, which isn't saying much.

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.

I love the Garfield comic strip but I don't see how it can transulate well into a movie.

Cartoon-to-Real conversions are bound to fail - and rather pointless, imho. Just leave the stuff in cartoon style and deliver a good story instead of trying to sell the movie over the 1337 new SFX or that "look we can do it with real people, too" effect - it just gives me the creeps most of the time.

i think it will be a flop....
they gotta stop trying to bring nostlagic cartoons to the screen...
ie Scooby Doo, Cat in the Hat, Casper...

WANT TO PLACE A BET ON THAT ??? THIS MOVIE WOULD HAVE DONE WELL ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO WHEN GARFIELD WAS HOT, BUT THE PROPERTY HAS LONG LOST ITS FIRE. THIS MOVIE WILL BOMB.

i agree with dayv, and i doubt that it will be anything good.

Two weeks of semi-decent box office. Then it will drop off into film hell.

I've got my money on that situation.

I don't even give it two weeks. Watch Scooby Doo 2 tank this weekend, and you'll see a subsequent drop-off in live action films based on cartoon animals. And DAYV is absolutely right: Garfield is so 20 years ago!

Does Garfield still run in newspapers?

Yeah, and it's intermittently funny. I generally have a better appreciation for cartoonists who knew when to pack it in, like Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes) and Gary Larson (The Far Side).

Then you have great cartoonists like Berkeley Breathed who had a great strip in Bloom County. One of the best IMHO. Until he trampled all over its memory with Outland and his most recent incarnation which I think is just called Opus.

I was going to mention Berke Breathed, but then I remembered Outland and Opus 'n' Bill.

He's actually got a new one just called Opus. Have you seen it?

No. None of the local papers are carrying it.

Be happy you don't have to read the latest bastardization of Opus. This time sans old BC pals.

I WENT TO SCHOOL WITH GARY LARSON'S LITTLE SISTER. FOR GRADUATION HE DID CHARACATURES OF EACH OF US. I STILL HAVE MINE.
