Over The Hedge

Rated: PG Running Time: 96 Minutes Year: 2006 Boobs: Zero One Sentence: Is a turtle a forager? Over the Hedge is Dreamworks new baby, hoping for the big cash in from their previous stuff like Shrek, after a mildly weak showing with Shark Tale. Over the Hedge however is not an original idea, at least the characters are not, they are based off of a comic of the same name that is syndicated in newspapers across the country. Here is today's comic. http://www.unitedmedia.com/comics/hedge/ However don't let the animation of the scratchy quality comic turn you off from Hedge the flick. Over the hedge has quite a few shots that are pushing the limits of CG today for mainstream animation. So we have very good CG animation going on. We add to that, a ton of big names for voice work. Bruce Willis, Steve Carrell, Avril Lavigne, Shatner, and more. Yes, Avril Lavigne is it in, surprisingly subdued and not horribly annoying. The cast I felt was put together quite well and all the voices worked out. I thought that Bruce Willis sounded a bit odd for the voice he was doing, but it didn't matter after a few minutes into it. Steve Carrell did the best job however, and was quite funny throughout. So now we have good cast, and good animation, so is the movie any good? I think it was quite fun, and very well put together. It had a solid gang movie feel to it, like Toy Story, or the Bad News Bears. Where everyone had something to add and the ensemble was executed to allow everyone to shine in their own way. On top of that the story, and jokes and animation were all used very well to portray the story, insert a nice kids message about family, and entertain all at the same time. I think it is well worth the watch, and with the bad reviews coming in for the code, you might want to pick the hedge if you have kids. It is going to be a tough weekend at the box office, and I can't tell you to pick this one over the other because I haven't seen code yet, but I do have to say this one was well worth the cost. //pics.livejournal.com/the_reviews/pic/000043hh” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
