Box set containing three popular family movies. In 'Garfield' (2004) Jon Arbuckle (Breckin Meyer) and his pet cat Garfield (voiced by Bill Murray) live in harmony together - until Jon introduces a new member to the family: Odie the loveable pooch. Jon adores Odie, not least because having two pets means twice as many trips to visit the the vet, Dr Liz Wilson (Jennifer Love Hewitt), with whom he is totally besotted. But Garfield is less keen, and orchestrates a 'dognapping' that he hopes should get rid of his rival once and for all. 'Cheaper By The Dozen' (2004) is a family comedy based on the autobiographical book by Frank Gilbreth Jr and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey - written in the 1940s. Tom (Steve Martin) and Kate Barker (Bonnie Hunt) are hardworking parents trying to juggle careers and a household amid the chaos of raising twelve kids. When Tom gets a job in Chicago, he moves the entire family but Kate then has her memoirs published and she has to go on a book tour. This creates many problems for the children of the Baker family, who react in various ways. Finally, in 'Mission Without Permission' (2003), twelve-year old Maddy (Kristen Stewart) is an incredibly skilled mountain climber, a talent that runs in the family: her father Tom (Sam Robards) was a mountaineer who scaled Everest. But since a bad fall, Tom is paralysed from the neck down. His only hope of recovery is a pioneering new operation that costs a quarter of a million dollars - and is not available on his health insurance. Determined to help her father, Maddy enlists the help of two friends, Gus (Max Thieriot) and Austin (Corbin Bleu), to plan the heist of a lifetime: to break into a high-tech bank vault suspended 100 feet above the ground.
