Garfield 2

(US, 2006, 75 minutes)

When his owner Jon flies to London to propose to girlfriend Liz, Garfield stows away in the luggage but, once there, is mistaken for a similar tabby who has gone missing after inheriting a vast country castle. A vast improvement over the first Garfield movie, with a more structured plot borrowed from The Prince and the Pauper and some decent gags; that the action is mostly concentrated on the animals helps enormously, and as in the first film the combination of live-action and animation is technically excellent.
