Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)


Over The Hedge is about a group of animals who wake up from hibernation to discover that, during the winter, an entire town has been built where their wood had previously been. So they have to pool all their individual natural skills to adapt to life foraging for the humans’ leftovers.

Like many of today’s cartoons, this starts slowly but never stops accelerating. Garry Shandling plays well against-type as an old conservative, and Bruce Willis plays David Addison as usual, while William Shatner… well, he’s always played himself, hasn’t he?

This was brilliant, funny and I even learnt stuff watching it. Apart from the absence of the traditional “Khaaan!” joke in the closing credits, I’m at a loss as to how to wish this were any better.
