Hilarious, if shallow comedy has a group of woodland creatures awakening from their winter hibernation, surprised to see a subdivision has sprouted up just beyond a hedge. Opportunistic raccoon RJ (Willis) tells his pals, including cautious turtle Verne (Shandling), that humans equal the good life and that they should venture into this strange new world. Of course, the humans, in the form of harpie Gladys (Janney) and "Verminator" Dwayne (Church) view these new neighbors as pests. Plenty of laughs and excellent voice performances, especially from Carell and Shatner, but trades much of the satire of Michael Fry and T. Lewis's source comic strip for fuzzy sentimentality.

Over The Hedge is not just for kids. I really enjoy watching this movie. When a hungry bear wakes up to see RJ, a raccoon, steal his provisions and then accidentally throw them all over the streets, he threatens to kill him if he does not return every single item he took from him. RJ has six days to steal from every human's kitchen he can find. He then meets a group of forest animals led by Verne, a turtle, and decides to use them for his plan. But as he gets closer to getting what he needed, he realizes that he finally has what he's always wanted... a family.
