Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Garfield Gets Real is a 2007 computer-animated feature. Despite brief instances of juvenile humor (a whoopee cushion is used, a dog is seen drinking out of a toilet bowl, a bear blows his nose and sends the tissue landing on a woman's face), this movie is best for younger children and fans of the Garfield comic strip. There also is some minor name-calling ("butt," "losers"), as well as some peril when Garfield, Odie, and their new friend Shecky hang upside down from a chandelier while the building they're in begins to burn down. Still, this is a mostly tame and fairly enjoyable movie starring the comic-strip world's most beloved cat.
