Other mistake: Jon's Volvo back license plate number in the first half of the movie is T03-851. When he and Dr Liz are looking for Odie, his front license plate number is I35-749. As they are pulling up to the train station, the Volvo in front of them also has the plate I35-749.
Continuity mistake: When Odie comes out on the porch to keep Garfield company, his collar and tags are visible; even more so when he attempts to get back in. But when the shot pulls away to show Odie alone on the steps (before running off after the scooter), his collar is gone. Part of the plot hinges on Jon trying to find Odie, who wasn't wearing his tags.
Trivia: Bill Murray agreed to be in the film without reading the full script upon seeing the name "Joel Cohen" listed as a writer. It turns out he thought he was signing onto a film co-written by "Joel Coen" of the Coen Brothers fame. It wasn't until he began recording his lines sometime later that he realised his mistake.
Garfield: Once again, my life has been saved by the miracle of lasagna.
Garfield: I've found that if you wait long enough, everything comes to you.
Garfield: I'm banged in the nose again.
