Over The Hedge

A DreamWorks animated feature (Antz, Shrek, Madagascar) about a group of forest critters coping with encroaching suburbia. Raccoon conman RJ (Willis) is in a pickle. He has one week to fill a grizzly bears cave with purloined human goods or he’s breakfast. Early in his mission RJ meets Verne the tortoise (Shandling). Verne is the cautious leader of a family of critters (possums, squirrels, hedgehogs etc), who have all just awoke from hibernation to find themselves no longer in their beloved forest – but amidst a freshly built subdivision.

Taking advantage of the critters’ naivety, RJ coaxes them into helping him gather goodies. Verne resists, but the temptation of human treats proves too great – they follow RJ into suburban trashcans, and into danger.

Very cool. Perfect for kids and the parents - I agree, the best animated film in years. We laughed our pants off.

A raucous, funny and fresh look at the 3 C's: conservation, consumerism and consumption (of the excessive and conspicuous kind)...

Not at the level of "Finding Nemo" or "Shrek," but is a lot of fun, awfully nice to look at, and filled with energy and smiles...

A backyard ecological comedy outfitted with some fine, silly slapstick and clever animal characters. This one is aimed more at a younger audience than, say, "Shrek" but has plenty of entertainment value for older family members...

Aside from having some great animation, the writing is funny and clever...

You’ll soon be sick of digital furballs, but there’s plenty of fun here — and Hammy is up there with Ice Age’s Scrat in the pantheon of lunatic movie rodents...

While the stunt casting of Avril Lavigne as Shatner's daughter results in the blandest vocal performance since Brad Pitt's in Sinbad. Thank goodness then for Steve Carell's hyperactive squirrel Hammy, easily the funniest and most appealing critter in this particular forest...
