Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (sequel to Garfield) has some crude humor. The villain makes rude comments about female bodies and behaves in a predatory fashion. He also tries to drown the (animated) cat, trains his Rottweiler to attack the cat, and schemes to gain control of an inherited estate; he wields a crossbow and an old-fashioned gun. The cat teases and abuses a smaller dog repeatedly, then draws the big dog into a trap by calling him a "girly dog." The dog bites a man in the crotch and the butt on separate occasions; a man is ravaged by animal-orchestrated hijinks. Animals take over and trash a kitchen (a ferret gets drunk). Some potty humor.
Jon yearns for Liz and they kiss at the end; Dargis insinuates sex with Abby and makes crude remark to Liz ("That makes two of you," alluding to her breasts).
Animated cats and live-action animals involved in cartoonish violence: a cat kicks and otherwise abuses a dog; a cat is dumped in a river to drown (emerges from sewer very dirty), a dog bites a man's crotch and "bottom," a dog pees on a Royal British guard (leading to a chase through the streets); slapsticky abuses of Dargis at end (he's chewed by a dog, falls, gets punched); he pulls out crossbow and gun to keep adversaries at bay.
Use of "sleaze," someone calls Dargis a "tool."
Dargis lies, cheats, and tries to kill Prince (a cat) to inherit a British estate; flatulence and potty humor.
