Very enjoyable with some great character performances. Although the plot isn't that original, the character nuances are above average for an animated film and there's a lot of in-joke-type humor that I really enjoyed.

An enjoyable with likable characters, but it teaches some iffy messages to youngsters (like that stealing is okay); Steve Carell as a speedy squirrel and Wanda Sykes as a lovesick skunk get the biggest laughs in this mostly infectious toon. Final Grade: B

Cute, but disappointing for adults

"RJ" (voiced by Bruce Willis) is an opportunistic raccoon who has a huge problem -- he destroyed the food stash of a bad-tempered grizzly (voiced by Nick Nolte) who orders "RJ" to get him a new stock of food or he will kill him. In search of new food, all of which is human-made, he runs into a group of wildlife which considers each other family.

However, he never tells them what they were actually gathering the food for.

On the other side of the hedge, they find a new world -- and one mean lady (All...

Lacking Depth

I love animated films but this one seriously lacked depth so it didn't really live up to its potential. A lot of big names provided voices for this film, which I think made it more entertaining than it should have been. An hour into it, I got so bored, I wanted it to end (and it's barely an hour and twenty minutes!). When it did succeed on providing the comedy, I must admit, I felt like I was watching a smart film that's aimed for everyone, not just the kids. For instance, the particular scene when the raccoon comments about the bond that humans have for food. I did like turtle character but then, by the end of the film, he was more of a martyr than a leader. The squirrel was adorable but I was really distracted when Avril Lavigne would provide voice for the possum. It's a definite hit-an...
