Over the Hedge didn't live up to my movie rating standards. It wasn't as funny as hoped and the plot line was terrible! I mean, animals trying to find food? Please.

I wasn‘t aware that ‘Over the Hedge’ is based on a comic strip. I've never seen it, but I can only imagine that it would be just as good as the film, if not better. And while it's not an astonishment, I can say that Hedge is genuinely enjoyable, and great fun for everyone. The story is well written, but feels very brisk. It starts, it continues for a bit, and then it ends. It is not as short as some films, but you can't help but wonder what more could have been done if they had a little more running time. It is a much stronger film than other Dreamworks titles like Madagascar and Shark Tale, and really seems like it can stand next to the likes of Shrek 1 and 2. The voice acting is all top-notch, from Willis' take no-nonsense raccoon, to the sadly missed Shandling as a neurotic turtle. Steve Carrell also stands out as the absolutely insane Hammy the squirrel, as does William Shatner as Ozzie the possum. As I had read before seeing the film, Shatner does an absolutely fabulous job playing possum. I couldn't stop laughing any time his character did something, it's just that great. The rest of the voice cast, from Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara as parents of hedgehogs, to Wanda Sykes as a skunk, to Thomas Hayden Church as an exterminator, to Nick Nolte as Vincent the bear, all are great and well suited for their roles. They all have quite a bit of screen time, and none feel over-used at all (unlike Madagascar's blatant overuse of Ben Stiller and no one else). Of course, the random inclusion of Avril Lavinge as Shatner's daughter Heather was a little bizarre, you can see that she is at least making an attempt at voice acting here. And as usual, the animation is excellent. While not being a total improvement from the likes of other Dreamworks films, the advancements are still very noticeable. The grass, the fur, the emotions and gestures, all of them are perfectly captured, and look gorgeous on film. All the colours are great too. It's a funny movie, and a fabulous cast. It's one of the better animated films of the last few months.

A bear gives a thieving racoon one week to get his food back or he's a goner. It is a pretty funny plot line if you ask me. The characters were all funny except for the woman who was the president of the homeowner's association. Obnoxious. I am also don't know why they decided to cast Avril Lavigne in the film, which is pointless because she doesn't have any talent and is a nasty human being. Bruce Willis did a great job as well as Eugene Levy (as usual), and a fantastic job by Steve Carrell as the spunky squirrel with ADD. A great film for the family and even just plain old-fashioned fun for kids of all ages.

Hey... this was pretty good! Very entertaining, not corny, great animation, and funny story line. When I saw the previews, I didn't think it was going to be that great of a movie. I thought it was going to be dumb and somewhat pointless. I was in for a big surprise!! I could not stop laughing, and there was a lot of cute gags. I recommend it for all ages!

Great funny movie. One of those cartoons that slips under the radar coz other films come out with better hype and bigger stars at the same time, but this was a really enjoyable film.

Great voice casting. The squirrel (Steve Carell) is hilarious and definitely steals the movie. Dreamworks has definitely nailed 3d scenery, which is fantastic. While not the full-bodied must-see movie that Shrek and Monsters Inc. were, it is still a good movie and has some very funny moments.

The parodies of our human foibles is hallarious and the characters great. I haven't joyfully laughed that much at anything in a while. We had to rewatch the movie because I was laughing to much and to loud for my husband to hear it!

Haven't seen one of these type movies I really loved since Shrek and Shrek II. However, Over the Hedge was awesome. It was hilarious, Steve Carell as the squirrel totally makes the movie! My hubby and I both loved this movie, and our kids are grown up! =D Can NOT wait to own the DVD! It is a must have!
