Garfield movie debuts at #7; takes in $7.2 million

Jim Davis’ second “Garfield” movie opened over the weekend with little acclaim and much less revenue.  “Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties” was number 7 over its opening weekend and only took in $7.2 million according to The Numbers.

Most reviews that I read thought the script was less than stellar, but I’m sure as a parent, if I had a choice between Pixar’s “Cars” and “Garfield,” I’d take the former. “Cars” is in its second week at number 1 and took in $31.2 million over the weekend for a growing total of $114.5 million.

Here are a couple of more reviews: The Patriot News in Harrison, PA thinks it wasn’t too bad, but the VUE Weekly hopes Garfield doesn’t have nine lives; The Boston Globe wasn’t impressed as well.
