While not outstanding or deep, "Over the Hedge" is likably wacky and has so many fun characters who would be nice to see again, it's kind of a shame we never got a sequel.

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.

The squirrel was adorable but I was really distracted when Avril Lavigne would provide voice for the possum. It's a definite …
