I would say watch the first 20 minutes and then find something else to do with your day!

Very cute. Lovable characters, wildly original slapstick routines, tearful heart tuggings, and most surprisingly, life-or-death dilemmas and environmental messages that will withstand repeated at-home viewings.

The story has a loony, slapstick verve, and the star-studded voice work is uniformly entertaining.

If Over the Hedge aims solely to entertain, it does so in a way that's mildly amusing but mostly hackneyed. If it aims to instruct, it weakens its own argument with the plethora of product tie-ins.

A colorful and engaging comedy of suburbia's encroachment into the wilderness and its consequences for a motley crew of animals just awakened from hibernation.

Adventure, cute and cuddly animals, and some wit make for a wonderful experience!
April 29, 2009
A surprisingly very good animated adventure that relishes in simplicity...
September 10, 2008
Caffeine freak critters, duplicitous raccoons, a highly talented cast and Bill Shatner in overacting overdrive -- it's like coming out of hibernation and waking in an animator's playground.

The story is no grabber, and the sight gags are labored, but the animation is sleekly pretty, and it goes by painlessly enough.

I watched the film with very low expectations and was pleasantly surprised by its heart and its humor.

The final showdown, in which the critters tangle with security-rigged lawn flamingos and garden gnomes, would have made Rube Goldberg proud.
March 24, 2007
A clever and fun escape from the summer blahs.
January 20, 2007
A cookie-cutter money-spinner, finely tooled for maximum profit, but utterly lacking timeless charm.
January 20, 2007
The new Dreamworks CGI animated feature ignores much of the satire and tries to cram the rest into the usual kids movie format.

The film's messages -- pro-family, pro-ecology, anti-consumerism -- sometimes feel forced. But Hedge is genuinely and consistently funny, for both children and parents.

This funny film follows the foibles of foragers forced to find food in the suburbs.
August 23, 2006
As a film buff I certainly appreciated the obscure film references, but gosh, some of these are way dated
August 11, 2006
A pleasant little animated film with great graphics, strong characters and a passable story about the value of family and friends.
July 8, 2006
Bursting with energy, excitement and humour while finding a tone that'll have kids and adults alike rolling in the aisles, Over the Hedge is the first of this year's classic animations, destined to be remembered for years to come.
