Over The Hedge

January 6, 2012

Over The Hedge is a cute movie from 2006, which I had never seen before a few days ago. I had heard it was a pretty good animated movie, so I decided to watch it for myself. The movie is about a scheming raccoon who fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food to a bear. He does this by invading the new suburban neighbourhood that popped up while they were hibernating, and ends up learns a lesson about family himself.

The movie has Bruce Willis, Steve Carell, Wanda Sykes, Avril Lavigne and William Shatner as some of the voices of the animals. I believe the actors were all cast well as each voice, because they really made the characters stand out.

For anyone who loves animals, this movie has a raccoon, bear, turtle, skunk, cat, squirrel, among several others. You can’t help but love the animals and dislike the people in this movie, especially one woman who can’t stand animals and call them all pests. The movie tells a good story about how important family is and how it’s important to work together. The movie gives many laughs and cute moments.

I’d rate the movie an 8 out of 10. It’s very cute and adorable as far as animated movies go. 🙂
