Conclusion: If you hate yourself, or hate your family, you'll watch (or make them watch) the agonizing 'Furry Vengeance.' While you might be jazzed about a movie with cute characters that openly preaches the virtues of environmentalism and general thoughtfulness, you could probably do with fewer poop jokes. Like no poop jokes, say.
Excerpt: How can you review Furry Vengeance ? You can’t be film snobbish about it. That just makes you look like a cold, heartless jerk. You can’t be hyper critical about its specific brand of nonsense, because it’s aimed at kids. It’s also not right to be sarcastic, because the film is such an easy target. This is what must be done: Total immaturity. Oh god! It’s horrible! The CG critters are utter agony!
Excerpt: Furry Vengeance is not a terrible movie because we’ve all seen it before. It’s not terrible because its two leads are indifferent and well past their primes. Hell, it’s not even terrible because it’s god-awful. Furry Vengeance is terrible because every single person involved, from initial conception to final execution, flat-out failed at the task they were assigned. Absolute debacles on this scale cannot possibly be attributed to one person.
Excerpt: A lack of vanity is generally a prerequisite for comedic actors, especially those who do any kind of physical business, but Brendan Fraser’s enthusiasm for embarrassing himself goes further than most. He’s the anti-Hugh Grant, a shameless ham with no pretense to sophistication, which is what makes him endearing in spite of his propensity for appearing in bad movies. Other actors might feel some compunction about playing a hapless Wile E.
Conclusion: What more can I say except, bar none, this is the worst movie I've seen this year. Maybe in the past five years. It's that awful. If you're thinking of buying this for a kid, don't. Kids deserve better than this, and they're smarter than this. Furry Vengeance is an insult to anyone with a cerebral cortex. Did you find this review helpful?
Excerpt: Make no mistake. Everything your instincts tell you about this movie - the title, the actors involved, the plot, even the poster in the cinema - are worth listening to. All that, and the animals 'thoughts' appear as pictures in speech bubbles... Oh yes, it's that bad, an insultingly bad environmental message presented through fervently over-enthusiastic slapstick comedy.
