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.

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...

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.

A clever and fun escape from the summer blahs.

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.

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

Animação despretensiosa que, eficiente do ponto de vista técnico, substitui a originalidade pela tentativa de provocar o riso fácil. E o mais importante: consegue.

A film that's good looking, thoroughly engaging and very, very funny. Better still, it's a movie that will delight all age groups and not just the ankle biters.

You'll soon be sick of digital furballs, but there's plenty of fun here - and Hammy is up there with Ice Age's Scrat in the pantheon of lunatic movie rodents.

Manages to come up with a fun and simple premise, and then fills it with some enjoyable characters and a manic Looney Tunes style energy
June 29, 2006
Brightly animated, frequently hilarious and perfectly cast comedy from the Dreamworks stable - the best of the recent animal-themed cartoon features.

It misses the mark a couple of times but in the main, it's good clean fun.
