Movie Info

When ambitious real estate developer Dan Sanders (Brendan Fraser) relocates his family to rural Oregon to supervise the construction of a massive new subdivision, one resourceful raccoon rallies his woodland friends to fight back and shut down the project. As the battle between man and beast heats up, the hapless real estate developer realizes there are some natural environments that are better left untouched. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Did they have to pad it out with so many repeated pratfalls and inconsequential guff? It should play well enough with the under tens, mind.

Furry Vengeance is a collection of feeble jokes in the service of green themes. Sustainability never looked so stupid.

Furry Vengeance is billed as a comedy, but I doubt it'll make you laugh. It might, however, cause you to weep for Brendan Fraser.

The paradox here is that the message of respect for animal life is outweighed by the lack of respect for human beings.

Furry Vengeance is unbearable. (Actually, the bear's performance is pretty good.)

Even the obligatory blooper reel that runs during the closing credits is painful in its desperation to generate laughs.

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.

September 23, 2010 Full Review Source: Moviedex

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.

If there's an award for taking a great idea and strangling it to death with mediocre execution, this should get it.

Is there really such a paucity of live-action family films on offer that Furry Vengeance needs a release at all?

Fraser merece créditos pelo esforço e por não temer o ridículo. Por outro lado, isto não é desculpa para a atrocidade representada por este filme racista, mal dirigido e sem a menor graça.

People often ask reviewers to choose the worst film of the year so far. At last I have a cast-iron candidate.

A feeble family comedy that really tests your patience.

Daily Express

Even by the low standards of live action funny animal movies, Furry Vengeance is a pretty bad film, the sort of low gag rate family flick that aims for generic suitable-for-all fun and satisfies no-one in the process.

May 10, 2010 Full Review Source: Scotsman

Seemingly written to the tastes of underachieving five-year-olds, director Roger Kumble ("Cruel Intentions") is hamstrung to create an even mildly entertaining children's comedy.

May 8, 2010 Full Review Source:

There is an environmental message delivered along with the goofy mayhem involved in catching the fuzzy culprits. But fair warning: once inside the theater, the audience is trapped.

May 7, 2010 Full Review Source:

One of those sad little movies upstaged by its own vastly superior trailer.

May 7, 2010 Full Review Source: Cinefantastique

Shields is not a natural comic performer, to say the least. Her face has the comic mobility and expressiveness of an Easter Island statue.

May 7, 2010 Full Review Source: Guardian

The film is hectoring enough to put the green movement back 100 years, and you end up wondering how many trees have been felled and air-miles flown to make this abject excuse for slapstick comedy.

The best thing you can say about Furry Vengeance is that it's kid friendly -- provided, that is, the kids are under five and a touch slow.

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.

It was entertaining to watch and for some people this might be a hilarious movie but to me it was normal. Just don't expect too much of this movie.

Hoping to make enough money through an overseas employer to live comfortably, Real Estate Developer Dan Sanders manages to convince his son, Tyler, and wife, Tammy, to re-locate in a remote corner of Oregon. Tyler does seem content after he meets with lovely Amber, but Tammy is concerned about her husband when he near-hysterically claims that local creatures, including beavers, ravens, bears, fox, etc. have joined forces to sabotage his project.
