Over the Hedge Reviews

April 14, 2013
The story has a loony, slapstick verve, and the star-studded voice work is uniformly entertaining.
April 14, 2013
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!

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.

April 18, 2007
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.

As a film buff I certainly appreciated the obscure film references, but gosh, some of these are way dated

A pleasant little animated film with great graphics, strong characters and a passable story about the value of family and friends.

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.

July 6, 2006
Animação despretensiosa que, eficiente do ponto de vista técnico, substitui a originalidade pela tentativa de provocar o riso fácil. E o mais importante: consegue.
| Original Score: 4/5

Lack of a decent plot or memorable characters starts to show around the hour mark.
