    I know most critics will hate this movie, but in my opinion I think Furry Vengeance is a funny movie that could teach people how animals feel and about caring for the environment.

    Say what you want about William Girdler's "Day of the Animals", the 1977 camp classic about a group of hikers confronting High Sierra critters that attack, the capricious fallout due to a thinning ozone layer as being grade-Z dreck and retroactive liberal propaganda: an environmental torture porn film, just the sort of thing Al Gore might have directed had he gone to the USC Film Say what you want about William Girdler's "Day of the Animals", the 1977 camp classic about a group of hikers confronting High Sierra critters that attack, the capricious fallout due to a thinning ozone layer as being grade-Z dreck and retroactive liberal propaganda: an environmental torture porn film, just the sort of thing Al Gore might have directed had he gone to the USC Film School instead of Harvard. At least there was a deductive axiom, albeit speculative, behind the blitzkreig of flying rats and Hitch-schlockian birds. "Day of the Animals" was a cautionary tale about the hazards of aerosol spray cans. Radiation had denatured the mountain beasts into cold-blooded killing machines, but they lacked a consciousness as to why the humans must pay. "Furry Vengeance", on the other hand, offers no such ecological explanation for the woodland creatures' aberrant comportment, in which these animal rebels display antrhopomorphic behavior without a scientific cause, still, whereas the afflicted creatures from the Girdler film ambushed its human opponents without calculation, the fierce raccoon and his furry minions are fully cognizant to the concept of home, family, and rezoning ordinances for the development of upper-class tract housing. A montage which shows the animal wars with mankind throughout he ages, rules out any possibility for a "Day of the Animals"-inspired subtext, since the fighting commenced well before the Industrial Age. "Furry Vengeance" is just a dumb kid's movie, which is far less ambitious than a dumb political one like "Day of the Animals". And it's sloppy. As Dan Sanders, Brendan Fraser plays an ambitious real estate developer who, after getting his ass kicked repeatedly by the wildlife, inevitably has second thoughts about deforestation once he learns that "animal relocation" is corporate-speak for "liquidation". But the filmmaker provides an inadequate suture for the mover and shaker's rehabilitation, since "Furry Vengeance" never deals with the beaver holocaust, in which Dan ordered the construction foreman to blow up the dam.

    Nama Brendan Fraser sepertinya akan terus diingat sebagai nama seorang aktor yang terjebak untuk selalu membintangi film-film yang ditujukan untuk pangsa pasar keluarga. Bukan sebuah masalah besar jika film-film yang ia bintangi merupakan film-film keluarga dengan kualitas yang memorable dan dapat dibanggakan. Namun dengan judul-judul seperti Looney Tunes: Back In Actions, Inkheart danNama Brendan Fraser sepertinya akan terus diingat sebagai nama seorang aktor yang terjebak untuk selalu membintangi film-film yang ditujukan untuk pangsa pasar keluarga. Bukan sebuah masalah besar jika film-film yang ia bintangi merupakan film-film keluarga dengan kualitas yang memorable dan dapat dibanggakan. Namun dengan judul-judul seperti Looney Tunes: Back In Actions, Inkheart dan Extraordinary Measures, yang tidak hanya gagal meraih perhatian para kritikus film dunia namun juga gagal meraih simpati para penonton, Fraser sepertinya harus semakin sering mempertimbangkan film yang akan ia bintangi. Dan Furry Vengeance bukanlah sebuah film yang akan merubah kenyataan itu.

    Dengan naskah yang dituliskan oleh Michael Carnes dan Josh Gilbert (Mr. Woodcock, 2007), Furry Vengeance mengisahkan mengenai Dan Sanders (Fraser), seorang pengembang perusahaan perumahan yang mendapatkan tugas dari pimpinannya, Neil Lyman (Ken Jeong), untuk membangun sebuah kompleks perumahan yang bertemakan alam dengan menggunduli sejumlah area perhutanan. Untuk melaksanakan tugasnya tersebut, Dan beserta istri, Tammy (Brooke Shields), dan anaknya, Tyler (Matt Prokop), harus mau direlokasi ke wilayah hutan selama setahun.

    Pada awalnya, Dan mendukung usaha perusahaannya untuk membangun perumahan yang ramah terhadap lingkungan. Namun ketika pemimpinnya mengungkapkan bahwa akan ada fase kedua dari pembangunan perumahan tersebut â

    It'a a little confusing if Brendan Fraser is the leading role of a horrible but average family movie. Animal Planet on steroids. But Furry Vengeance has a lot of great moments, but the acting, the music, and the environment stuff may look like a Captain Planet PSA, but it's not. Not a good movie, but I'll rent it.

    Furry Vengeance isn’t really a movie at all; it's a message provided by the good people at Participant Media.

    On the sliding critter-comedy scale, Furry Vengeance falls somewhere between the Chipmunks and the Chihuahua (the one from Beverly Hills).
  3. Maybe your kids will insist that you see Furry Vengeance. Then again, wouldn't this be the perfect time to let them test their independence and sit through it alone? Otherwise, good luck. You have my condolences.
