Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties | 2006 | PG | - 1.2.1

In the second installment of Jim Davis' comic strip as movie, Garfield follows his owner Jon to England. There, Garfield is mistaken for a noble cat that has inherited a castle. Enjoying the royal treatment, Garfield must also protect the castle from Lord Dargis who wants to turn it into a resort. With Jennifer Love Hewitt, Breckin Meyer, Lucy Davis, Billy Connolly and Bill Murray. Directed by Tim Hill. [1:30]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A man and a woman kiss and hug a few times, and a man and a woman flirt in a couple of scenes.
 A man makes a comment about drinking alcohol and then, "Salsa dancing in your knickers."
 A couple of women wear low-cut dresses that reveal cleavage, and we see statues of men and women that reveal the men's bare chests.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A dog attacks a man's trousers and pulls out the crotch (the man screams), a dog lunges at a man, he yells and we see him later with shredded clothing, and a dog bites a man on the buttocks. A man holds a woman threateningly, and a ferret crawls up his trouser leg causing him to release the woman.
 A man punches another man in the nose. A man grabs another man by the lapels and yells at him.
 A man chases a cat, a barking and snarling dog chases a cat, and a dog viciously tears up a pillow and a man orders it to kill a cat. A dog snarls and jumps through a portrait of a cat.
 A man puts a cat in a picnic basket and throws it into a river (the basket does not sink), a man traps a cat in a pillow case and tosses it into a dark basement cell, and a man with a spiked ball on a chain chases a cat.
 Animals shoot clay pigeons at a man and he is nearly struck. A man trips on a suit of armor, knocks his head on a shield and falls unconscious.
 A canopy falls on a man (he is uninjured) and a statue falls on a man (he is also uninjured). A man's finger is pinched in a mousetrap.
 A cat is nearly hit by a car, a cat jumps off a bridge, falls onto a passing boat and we hear a thud (it appears uninjured), a cat falls out a window and into shrubs, and a cat jumps and clings to the back of a moving truck.
 A bird is sucked up into an exhaust flue, a cat hits a dog with a turkey leg, a cat kicks a dog off a sofa, and a parrot is hit with a pillow and falls off a sofa. We see many pets in cages in a kennel.
 A cat slides and crashes into a table holding a vase of flowers that tips over and the vase breaks, then runs into a statue that tips over and knocks several other statues down breaking them all, and another vase falls on the floor and breaks.
 A man and a woman are sprayed with lasagna when a cat eats it aggressively, a man spills wine on his shirt and falls on the floor, and a man faints and spills a tray of food. A dog urinates on a palace guard's boot and is then chased by the guard, and a cat flatulates in a dog's face. A cat burps loudly in a couple of scenes, and a dog drools. A cat climbs into a bidet and is squirted in the face by the water. A cat makes a remark about eating someone's liver "with fava beans and Chianti."
 We hear that a woman died and see the reading of the will where a man becomes angry about what she left to him. A man talks about doing away with many farm animals and makes a veiled reference to eating some of them.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
