Audience Reviews for Over the Hedge

    With a surprisingly well done mix of adult satire and family charm, Over The Hedge isn't the greatest film ever made - but thanks to it's stellar voice cast and fast paced animation it succeeds.

    Over the Hedge is okay. It may not rank highly above other great animated films but is still a pretty entertaining time and an okay film to pass the time.

    Clever and funny, Over the Hedge is a wildly entertaining adventure from DreamWorks Animation. When a bunch of foraging critters come out of hibernation to find themselves blocked in from a gated community by a hedge, a street smart raccoon teaches them how to live in suburbia. The cast is excellent, featuring Bruce Willis, William Shatner, Garry Shandling, Steve Carell, and Avril Lavigne; who all deliver wonderful performances. And the animation is especially good, with incredible detail and creative designs. The music by Ben Folds is also well-done, giving a lot of energy and character to the film. Delightfully hilarious, Over the Hedge is a smartly made comedy that's good family fun.
