Why watch this film?

Funny and little-remembered Dreamworks movie, 'Over the Hedge' is one of those animations with somewhat obvious messages about environmentalism and ecology. However, the story of animals from a forest that find themselves surrounded by a city in post-hibernation life helps to set the tone of the movie, making it a surefire entertainment for children. The absolute highlight is the hyperactive and always desperate to have a space to talk squirrel Hammy. It's not the best and most memorable animation of the 2000s, but its simplicity helps create good memories with an important story of environmentalism.



Our suggestions

A scheming raccoon fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food, by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating...and learns a lesson about family himself.
