A truly stunning film

Truly an incredible film. The cinematography is breathtaking. This movie inspired me to be a better person. The action is incredible as well.

So dumb...

I've never felt compelled to leave a review, let alone while my children are still watching the movie, but here we are. Within the first 15 minutes of this movie, a random evil woman shows up and a lonely emperor (Jon, but on a different planet) begs her to marry him. She agrees and they get married on the spot. She immediately reveals that she is using him to gain world domination. Enter the Pet Force, led by an alternate- universe Garfield superhero, who decides for some reason he needs help from actual Garfield and his friends. The whole thing seems like it was written by a 5th grader. Too much flirting and mean language (shut up, idiot, etc) for a G movie, plus a dumb plot overall.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
