Movie of the Week - Over the Hedge

Over the Hedge
Staring: Bruce Willis, Garry Shandling, William Shatner, Steve Carell, Wanda Sykes, and Nick Nolte.

Premise: RJ (Bruce Willis/raccoon) finds himself in a heap of trouble with a bear who has given him an ultimatum - replace everything that was destroyed in one week, or he will be hunted down and killed. So RJ frantically looks for someplace to get the goods which need replacing and runs across a new development. Even better, he runs across a group of foragers who are just about to start gathering food for the following winter. RJ decides to enlighten them to the ways of man and hopefully can get them to get all he needs for him.

Review: Very cute film. Lots of funny moments, especially the climax toward the end. The acting and computer animation are great. Make sure to sit through the credits! There's a little extra bit at the end! ***1/2!!
