Starring: Brendan Fraser, Brooke Shields and Ken Jeong
Story: A live action family comedy in which an ambitious young real estate developer, Dan Sanders, faces off with a band of angry animals when his new housing subdivision pushes too far into a pristine part of the wilderness. Led by an incredibly clever raccoon, the animals stymie the development and teach our hero about the environmental consequences of man's encroachment on nature. (Summit Entertainment)
Rated: PG for some rude humor, mild language and brief smoking
Bottom Line: It’s a lightweight, sophomoric and poorly executed family comedy with a heavy-handed-pound-you-over-the-head-save-our-planet message. Now, that being said, I took my 5- and 3-year old boys to see it – and they had a good time They laughed out loud because, let’s face it, someone getting hit in the crotch is funny. Kids will eat this earth-happy movie up with an eco-friendly, bio-degradable spoon – but like the many skunks that inhabit it – FURRY VENGEANCE stinks!
