Silly but funny

This made me and my 6yr old have a good laugh and this made it worth it. It’s definitely not Oscar worthy but was so funny 6yr old wanted to watch it again. The father apologized in the end and this was good.

My kids howled with laughter

It's 100% slapstick and the animals are the masterminds behind all of the pranks. That's it... no deep messages, role models, or incredible acting. The value of this movie is not in the message or the storytelling, but getting to spend time laughing with my kids.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (23 ):
Kids say (37 ):

This movie's filled with so many cliches, predictable sight gags, and lazily written dialogue that it's difficult to take it seriously. At the very least, the clever little animals in FURRY VENGEANCE don't talk; that's about all that can be said for it. Even the "pay attention to the animals" message is buried under a puddle of raccoon pee. While kids might giggle, there are far better choices for eco-friendly family films.

Despite co-starring usually hilarious comedians like Jeong and The Office star Angela Kinsey, most of the jokes fall flat, although Jeong is so naturally funny that sometimes just looking at him is enough to elicit a laugh or two. It's especially difficult to watch Fraser -- the former swashbuckling action hero who starred in (the first two) The Mummy films. He looks awkward and ill-at-ease in this father role (even though he has quite the large family of his own). Right about the third time the skunks trapped in his character's SUV sprayed his face, it's hard not to feel downright sorry for him.
