Rarely have critters frolicked more hilariously than in Over the Hedge, a movie that should amuse all but the newborn or dead.

This first animated release from the marriage of DreamWorks and Paramount has animals that will appeal to the young, humor that will appeal to adolescents, tongue-in-cheek sophistication that will endear itself to adults and an appreciation of its animated predecessors that should warm the hearts of veteran moviegoers.

Over the Hedge (DreamWorks) Starring the voices of Bruce Willis, Garry Shandling, Wanda Sykes, William Shatner. Directed by Tim Johnson and Karey Kirkpatrick. Rated PG. Time 96 minutes.
