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.

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...
