Take a break from work: watch a trailer…
Remember those old ads that used to ask, “Is it live, or is is Memorex?” Movies like this one make me wonder, Is it satire, or just a calculated appropriation of the notion? Razing a forest to make way for a forest-themed mall is a good idea, I guess, as a basis for a satire, but wasn’t it handled better in, like, two seconds, in Back to the Future, when in the blink of a temporally disturbed eye, Twin Pines Mall became Lone Pine Mall? Do crotch injuries and poop jokes truly add any depth to this concept?
Is Brendan Fraser this desperate? Is Brooke Shields this desperate? Could anybody be this desperate?
I haven’t seen this, and probably won’t, but I suspect that if I did, I will have liked it better the first time around, when it was called Over the Hedge.
Furry Vengeance opens in the U.S. and Canada on April 30, and in the U.K. on May 7.
