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

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 cookie-cutter money-spinner, finely tooled for maximum profit, but utterly lacking timeless charm.

There's a moderate amount of fun to be had.

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

Can't seem to rise above to see the hedge for the trees.

This moderately amusing computer-animated comedy is torn between its zany, go-for-broke nature and the strictures of trying to be everything for everyone.

Want to take your kids to a movie that equates junk food and fun? If so, then this one's for you.

Just not different enough to be distinctive

Promising premise, but lacks follow through.
