'Over the Hedge'

This animated film will have the kids laughing out loud as it tells the tale of a group of forest friends led by a mischievous raccoon, RJ (voiced by Bruce Willis), as a suburban housing development threatens their forest. Ken Fox of described the movie this way: "A sly satire of American 'enough is never enough' consumerism and blind progress at the expense of the environment."
