It Ain't the Cat in the Hat.

Genre: Comedy / Animation / Family

Distributor: 20th Century Fox

Cast: Liz Wilson, Bill Murray, Breckin Meyer, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Stephen Tobolowsky

Life couldn't be sweeter for Garfield, everyone's favourite feline. Parked on a comfortable chair in front of the television, feasting on his favorite dish, lasagna and hurling insults at his beleaguered owner Jon, Garfield is the master of his universe. When Jon takes Garfield to visit beautiful veterinarian Liz Wilson, she gives Jon a pepped-up, tail-wagging, panting creature that represents everything that Garfield loathes. Enter Odie, a lovable, dim-witted dog. The wise cracking cat is, for the first time in his nine lives, left speechless. The clueless Odie chases his tail till he's dizzy, crashes into walls, and barks without cause, all to the unbridled delight of Jon who eagerly welcomes Odie into his home. Odie turns Garfield's perfect world upside down. Garfield's solution: OUT, DARN DOG. But when the dog goes missing, Garfield feels that he is to blame for what happened and sets off to find the crook and get Odie back.

The further adventures of Riddick (Vin Diesel) continue five years later, as the escaped convict with the ability to see in the dark finds himself caught in the middle of a galactic war between two opposing forces. The key figure of them is the Lord Marshal (Colm Feore), the leader of a sect called the Necromongers waging the "10th Crusade" in the 26th century. Helping Riddick is Aereon (Judi Dench), the Ambassador of the "Elemental" race, who helps Riddick unearth the secrets of his origin and Kyra (Alexa Davalos), who has grown up since Riddick knew her as a preteen girl in the first movie. Attempting to free himself and Kyra from a subterranean prison, Riddick ends up on board the Necromonger flagship, where he gets his chance to face off against the Lord Marshal in a battle over the future of all beings in the galaxy, both living...and dead.
