5.0 out of 5 starsFantastic, Underrated Movie
Verified purchase
None of the streaming services has this cute and funny movie. I remember seeing it and loving it and now that I have children, I wanted them to love it, too. Oh, Hammie, we love you. And we're so glad you are in our digital collection now. Great for our four-year-old and nine-year-old. Violence is on par with Elmer Fudd trying to get that Wascally Wabbit.

4.0 out of 5 starsStill funny after all these years, though the animation looks dated now
Verified purchase
Based on a newspaper comic strip, this movie feels a bit dated now, but is still a lot of fun for kids and kid-like parents. The characters don't animate as well as characters do nowadays and the humans look especially "off" with lip sync and details issues. The story and humor of the movie is not impacted by the apparent technological advances since this film was made. I still chuckled at the usual places (having seen this when it came out years ago) and my 7 year old son let out a couple of really deep guffaws along with the usual point-and-laugh stuff. Not violent, no bad words, nor too much crude humor; this film may still be a little too much excitement and peril for younger kids.

3.0 out of 5 starsGoofy Fun
Verified purchase
When humans build a housing development in their forest, a group of animals work together with a scheming raccoon to steal food. The animals clashing with humans they've never seen before allowed a lot of room for comedy. This is a good movie, but I'm not sure the story completely worked. It felt a bit disjointed and focused more on setting up gags than actually building the plot.

I also don't think it's held up well over the years. The animation is unique and has a sharp visual style, but looks a bit stiff compared to current animation. Of course, this is a problem with all early computer animation, but Pixar wisely avoided animating certain objects like people and fur until they had the technical skill to render it realistically. This one didn't. Everything looks stiff and a bit plastic. But the family enjoyed it, and we had a few good laughs.

4.0 out of 5 starsDreamworks can be a mixed bag..
Verified purchase
But this one is one of my favorites. AMAZING voice cast. Willis, Nolte, Shandling, Carrell, just to name a few. Pretty straightforward plot, selfish guy finds surrogate family and has a change of heart. Surprised this didn't get the sequel treatment, must not have been a huge box office hit. Couldn't get my 5 year old daughter to sit through it however.

1.0 out of 5 starsVERY POOR Quality
Verified purchase
I love this movie and bought it for my grandchildren to watch, but this DVD is such low quality that it is like watching through a fish bowl. It also has subtitles that can't be turned off. It states it was made in Mexico and I suspect from the poor quality that it is a bootleg. It's a shame that Amazon not only missed that, but has it listed as an "Amazon Choice". I am returning it and two others that haven't even been opened since they came from the same source and I suspect are just as bad.

4.0 out of 5 starsFun animated movie for adults and children, and even has some ideas
Verified purchase
Great little movie with talking animated woodland animals about selfishness vs. integrity, using people vs. family, the artificiality of suburbia, and the depletion of wild land. There's even a prediction of pandemic and the upheaval of suburban normalcy, and a Karen character. Pretty prescient for a 2006 movie! Could have been right out of 2019!

The raccoon character can't resist Spuddies, referencing the crack-addicted raccoon movie Krackoon.

5.0 out of 5 starsFINALLY ON BLU RAY, only took 14 years to reach on HD
Verified purchase
Great price and pure enjoyment of this classic super funny movie. I can't believe it took them 14 years to get it on HD on blu ray. The price is a steal for this gem of a movie. Bruce Willis is a natural in this type of character made movie. The picture is sharp and very clear and the FUR just jumps off the screen. It also has a few good extra's also. Why are you still reading this, just pull the lever and buy it!!

5.0 out of 5 starsFood, and more food!
Verified purchase
Any food lover will enjoy this awesome food heist movie.

Excellent storytelling and great character development.
Awesome group of voice actors each distinctly unique.
For as old as the movie is, it has great animation.
The widescreen version is like watching a whole new movie compared to the full screen version.
Can’t beat $5.99 for cost and prime shipping!
