Critic Reviews for Furry Vengeance
Sooner or later, you might be inclined to root for hapless predators like Sylvester the Cat or Wile E. Coyote because they are the underdogs and their prey are far more obnoxious than they are.
That even the kids in the audience didn't really laugh at all the hyperactive mugging and slapsticky animal nonsense pretty much tells you what an excruciating 91-minute endurance test this is.
Here is a film that doesn't just scrape the bottom of the barrel, it demands that you lick it.
Almost as much of a relief as making it through to the end is realising earlier on that none of the creatures will be talking for the duration of the picture. This reduces the annoyance factor considerably for anyone over the age of nine.
Filled with pratfalls, slapstick and toilet humour, this furry nonsense with an eco-friendly message is harmless family fun.
Audience Reviews for Furry Vengeance
A painfull un-funny film with a paper thin plot that im sure tortured Fraser as much as it did me.
First off Brendan Fraser is a big bloated mess now. It's beyond sad. But Brooke Shields is still a babe.
This movie wasn't fun or cute. Totally boring. Even Ken Jeong who plays the perfect crazy Asian dude was still a fail. Just plain awful, the whole movie.
The title alone alerts you that this will not be a pleasant journey. It's 92 abusive minutes of watching a doughy Brendan Fraser act like he is being tortured by a conspiracy of woodland wildlife. Fraser is a land developer who wants to raze a forest to make way for houses, and nature doesn't take too kindly. Raccoons, squirrels, birds, bears, and even wild turkeys all take their turn tormenting Fraser. The slapstick is at Looney Tune levels of manic absurdity. Even worse is the ham-fisted environmental message that still manages to be cloying, preachy, and completely naive. This lame eco message may actually encourage people to chop down trees out of sheer spite. After an hour of animals trying to kill him, suddenly Fraser realizes that the forest is their home too. For their furry families. Everyone has the same facial expression of barely concealed embarrassment. Even Fraser deserves better than this family film purgatory he seems to be stuck in while he waits for a phone call confirming another dumb Mummy movie. Furry Vengeance has the rank odor of failure from every frame, and yet the movie hits a new low when the end credits come around. Just when you think you've been given your freedom back, the cast breaks out into an end credit rap with snippets of movie parodies from "Furry TV." It makes no sense except to add one last moment to hold your head in shame.
