Synopsis

Double bill of family comedies. Jim Davis's self-centered, lasagne-loving cat Garfield becomes a star of the big screen in 'Garfield: The Movie' (2004), a live action/CGI feature film adapted from the popular comic strip. 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 lovable 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... In 'Dunston Checks In' (1995), the owner of a five-star hotel, Mrs Dubrow (Faye Dunaway), has discovered that a prestigious hotel guide-book is about to anonymously assess her hotel for its six-star rate. The hotel's manager had promised his two sons that they would go on a belated family holiday but is ordered by his boss to forget those plans and concentrate on making sure everything is perfect for the inspectors. Meanwhile Lord Rutledge (Rupert Everett), a jewel thief who uses an Orangutan called Dunston as his accomplice, has just checked in. When Dunston manages to get lost in the hotel and is befriended by the manager's ten-year-old son, Kyle, mayhem and chaos ensue.
