Product Description

Over The Hedge ~ Over The Hedge

Amazon.ca

The manicured lawns and overstuffed garbage cans of suburbia become a buffet for woodland creatures in Over the Hedge. A self-centered raccoon named RJ (voiced by Bruce Willis, Die Hard) steals and accidentally destroys the hoard of an angry bear (Nick Nolte, 48 Hours), who gives the raccoon a week to replace it. RJ despairs--until he meets an odd gang of foragers, ranging from a turtle named Verne (Garry Shandling, The Larry Sanders Show), a father/daughter duo of opossums (the bizarre pairing of William Shatner and pop singer Avril Lavigne), a family of porcupines (with A Mighty Wind's Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara as the parents), and a hyperactive squirrel named Hammy (Steve Carell, The 40 Year Old Virgin). By convincing these friendly beasts that the suburban homesteads on the other side of a recently erected hedge are a mother-lode of cast-off food, RJ hopes to dupe them into doing his gathering. But when the suburban residents realize they've been invaded by woodland pests, an exterminator is called to take care of the problem. The overarching storyline of Over the Hedge is pure formula--your basic "family matters more than anything" lesson--but moment to moment, the movie is delightfully crisp and clever. The animation is topnotch, the acting is excellent (other voices include those of Allison Janney, The West Wing, and Thomas Haden Church, Sideways), and the satirical jabs at consumerism are actually funny. An above-average animated movie. --Bret Fetzer

I wasn`t aware that `Over the Hedge' is based on a comic strip. I've never seen it, but I can only imagine that it would be just as good as the film, if not better. And while it's not an astonishment, I can say that Hedge is genuinely enjoyable, and great fun for everyone.

The story is well written, but feels very brisk. It starts, it continues for a bit, and then it ends. It is not as short as some films, but you can't help but wonder what more could have been done if they had a little more running time. It is a much stronger film than other Dreamworks titles like Madagascar and Shark Tale, and really seems like it can stand next to the likes of Shrek 1 and 2.

The voice acting is all top-notch, from Willis' take no-nonsense raccoon, to the sadly missed Shandling as a neurotic turtle. Steve Carrell also stands out as the absolutely insane Hammy the squirrel, as does William Shatner as Ozzie the possum. As I had read before seeing the film, Shatner does an absolutely fabulous job playing possum. I couldn't stop laughing any time his character did something, it's just that great. The rest of the voice cast, from Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara as parents of hedgehogs, to Wanda Sykes as a skunk, to Thomas Hayden Church as an exterminator, to Nick Nolte as Vincent the bear, all are great and well suited for their roles. They all have quite a bit of screen time, and none feel over-used at all (unlike Madagascar's blatant overuse of Ben Stiller and no one else). Of course, the random inclusion of Avril Lavinge as Shatner's daughter Heather was a little bizarre, you can see that she is at least making an attempt at voice acting here.

And as usual, the animation is excellent.

this film was hyped so much and heaped with praise.even a good
friend of mine told me it was hilarious.imagine my surprise in finding
out it is not hilarious at all,barely even comical.there are a couple
of "light chuckle" moments,but that's it.i know it is an animated movie
and maybe i'm being too sensitive here(or,maybe i'm just out to
lunch),but i actually think the movie is mean spirited in some parts.
as an animated movie goes it is about average,certainly nothing more.as
an animated comedy,it is lower than average.so,i'll give "Over the
Hedge" 2/5

I don't think it's quite worth of the 5 stars I gave it, but it's closer to a 5 than it is a 4.

Anybody can enjoy this one, but particularly if you have young children with you. First rate animation, and a first rate story as well, with plenty of laughs. The only disappointing character of the bunch was the skunk played by Wanda Sykes. Don't get me wrong, she's not bad in it, but she's MUCH funnier than what they let her do in the film.

Good balance of humour and story, and of course has the happy ending that everyone expects.

I was just as eager as my kids to see this movie, only to be just as disaffected as they were. It had great voices, great potential...it just somehow missed. A nice fuzzy, warm message, but with no zip to push it past a dozen other kid-oriented flicks. The only great part was William Shatner's self-parody as the play-dead opossum, and my kids aren't old enough to see the humour in that! An average movie, with thwarted possibilities.

I actually really liked this. Amazing animation (especially in the background), great cast, laugh out loud funny on multiple ocasions. I wasn't expecting much and was very happily supprised. A good mix of adult humor, which I always apreciate in a kids movie. It's no Shrek but best animated I have seen since Shrek 2. It looses .5 for the the lamest Shrek 3 add ever. 4.5/5.
