    i think this movie was awful because of the jokes. they were sooo inapropriate. Like when they said "cookie". that has a hidden meaning.

    Not very clever and over wrought with bad jokes for older kids and not to subliminal "green" messages for the under 7 year old crowd. It tries to satisfy too large a demografic and in so doing it compromises itself. It's no Shreck that's for sure.

  1. Though the animation is solid and the writing reasonably clever, Over the Hedge is clearly more about packaging than freshness or substance.

    It's very funny, and the little woodland critters that make up the cast are a kiddie-pleasing bunch.

    Aside from having some great animation, the writing is funny and clever.
