Product Description

A scheming raccoon fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food, by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating...and learns a lesson about family himself.

From Amazon.co.uk

The manicured lawns and overstuffed garbage cans of suburbia become a buffet for woodland creatures in Over the Hedge. A self-centered raccoon named RJ (voiced by Bruce Willis, Die Hard) steals and accidentally destroys the hoard of an angry bear (Nick Nolte, 48 Hours), who gives the raccoon a week to replace it. RJ despairs--until he meets an odd gang of foragers, ranging from a turtle named Verne (Garry Shandling, The Larry Sanders Show), a father/daughter duo of opossums (the bizarre pairing of William Shatner and pop singer Avril Lavigne), a family of porcupines (with A Mighty Wind's Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara as the parents), and a hyperactive squirrel named Hammy (Steve Carell, The 40 Year Old Virgin).

By convincing these friendly beasts that the suburban homesteads on the other side of a recently erected hedge are a mother-lode of cast-off food, RJ hopes to dupe them into doing his gathering. But when the suburban residents realise they've been invaded by woodland pests, an exterminator is called to take care of the problem. The overarching storyline of Over the Hedge is pure formula--your basic "family matters more than anything" lesson--but moment to moment, the movie is delightfully crisp and clever. The animation is topnotch, the acting is excellent (other voices include those of Allison Janney, The West Wing, and Thomas Haden Church, Sideways), and the satirical jabs at consumerism are actually funny. An above-average animated movie. --Bret Fetzer

I watched Over the Hedge with my almost-40-yr-old husband and I spent the movie doing what I usually end up doing while watching funny films.....rewinding it to hear what I'd missed while my husband was roaring laughing! And yes....it is that funny.

The movie starts with a greedy raccoon (RJ) getting caught stealing a bears stash of food. The bear gives RJ just one week to replace everything he's taken....or else. RJ stumbles upon a group of simple forest critters who he entices into a plan to go `over the hedge' into the new housing development and feast upon some of the best food they've ever tasted. What follows is a laugh a minute. It's a movie that the kids will watch over and over and not one which will have the parents going `oh no, not again' as you could watch it over and over and still find it as funny as the first time you saw it! If you enjoyed the likes of Shrek, Monsters Inc and Cars then you'll love Over the Hedge. If you didn't enjoy any of them......what's wrong with you!?!?!?!?

With stars like Bruce Willis, William Shatner and Nick Nolte you get the idea that this movie is not going to leave you disapointed...and if you thought this you would be correct.

A very enjoyable movie even though i'm not a kid. It may not have terribly much slapstick as you may look forward to and the movie can begin to slow down in parts, however it is quickly picked up again with quick, and exciting scenes.

The story line is simple and sweet, RJ a hungry Racoon steals food off a bear named Vincent, so RJ must get the food for Vincent before Full moon or Vincent will hunt him down.

An easy moral of deceit and lack of trust which is good for anyone watching it and a favourite character soon becomes one of the worst.

Make your decision, see the story, enjoy the movie and most of all...have a good laugh!

The film is excellent 10 out of 10, however the second disc in my opinion is poor for a DVD of this quality from Dreamworks. When i checked the file size when i was installing the PC hammy desktop i was shocked !! to see how little was actually on the second disk.

1. DVD Video Part it mostly Seasonal with Hammy dancing and thats about it. Hammy busting out his best moves (Dancing Hammy )

2. The second part is computer based Give hammy a home on your desktop and printable seasonal goodies. when i put it in the drive to see the computer goodies

Including pt1 and 2 there is very little on the second disc if you are only getting Over the Hedge.

In my personal opinion if you only want the DVD Film and the better extras ie the Hammys Bomerang Adventure etc then go for the One Disc version, and save the difference in money to put towards another Title

Format: DVD
A scheming squirrel gets caught trying to pinch a psycho bears stash of grub, gets one week to replace every last crisp packet or its death by bear claw. He runs in to a band of simple wood dwellers who fall for his food gathering con trick.

The story is tiny and as usual full of aww schucks moralizing as per usual but who cares when the films is this funny? The voice overs are all very good and any cartoon worth its salt will have every last hair rippling with realism and thats all very nice but far too often these sort of kiddie flicks blast out of the blocks and then fizzle out with a wimper but not this one it starts off funny and keeps it up right to the end. Whats more some of the scenes are truly inspired in paticular one, where the potty squirrel who runs away with the whole film, gets so stoked up on fizzy drink that the whole world appears to be moving in slow motion to him.

This is a nice change from the usual and stands up to repeated viewing.

You'll enjoy this and so will the nippers it's well worth getting, go on, splash some conkers on this one.

Format: DVD
When RJ the Raccoon (Bruce Willis) gets Vincent the bears food smashed up on the highway, he only has a week to get it all back. RJ comes across an family of foraging woodland creatures and cons them into stealing food from the encroaching suburbia.

The film is based on the hilarious comic strip by Michael Fry and T. Lewis, Over the Hedge is a brilliant film for all the family. The voice cast for the film include Bruce Willis, Steve Carrell and the hilarious over-actor, William Shatner.

Hammy (Steve Carrell) the cookie obsessed squirrel is the funniest of all the characters. Verne (Gary Shandling) is the constantly panicked reptile, who doesn't want RJ around and doesn't want to have anything to do with the humans.

Overall the movie is a funny one, but they could have pushed it and made it hilarious. It's a film for all ages, but the younger children will definitely enjoy it the most.

For entertainment value "Over the Hedge" is without doubt one of the funniest and likeable animation comedies i think ive seen.

The two chracters i particularly loved were Racoon and Ground Squirrel whose dialogue was superb.

Trying to keep Squirrel from drinking the caffine sports drinks because of his hyperactive behavior was the highlite for me.

The dozens of reviews written about this scream of a comedy must speak volumes of its popularity.

There was not a single dull moment from begining to end.

The animation and expressions on all the characters faces were magic.

Only a short film but for likeability and enjoyment factor i think this enchanting comedy beats the like of Shrek and others hands down.

Its the kind of film you would never tire watching again and again.

Pure Magic
