America’s favorite fat cat is back, and this time, he’s giving England the royal treatment! It’s a British invasion of a different kind when Garfield, along with pals Jon and Odie, travels to London and meets his mirror-image in Prince, an aristocratic kitty who has inherited a fabulous castle. he two trade places, and soon Garfield is living large as only he can! There’s just one problem: the dastardly Lord Dargis wants him out of the picture. A Tail of Two Kitties is twice the laughs and double the fun for the whole family… It’s good to be the king!
Directed by Tim Hill, Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties stars Breckin Meyer, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Billy Connolly, Bill Murray, Tim Curry, and Bob Hoskins.
