Twitter Capsule: The last time a film was this incoherently, indulgently up itself, a Narf was involved. What a b<><>ndoggle.

Second Capsule: Good on Garfield for committing so fully and gamely to this misbegotten farrago, which just doesn't deserve the patience or parsing it asks.

VOR:   Hard to judge actual value of films that present as such self-consciously dense objects, begging many watches. Feels stale to me. But try, maybe?
