Furry Vengeance
Brendan Fraser vs mother nature


submit to reddit


Plot
A real estate developer (Fraser) goes to war with a bunch of furry critters who object when his new housing development impinges on their pristine Oregon forest.


Review
Furry Vengeance
Brendan Fraser continues his physical transformation into Rodney Dangerfield in this slapstick live-action comedy, playing a hapless property developer who falls foul of woodland wildlife while trying to build homes in their natural habitat — with, it must be said, the proverbial hilarious consequences.

Fraser’s gift for goofball comedy gets a full workout, Brooke Shields proves game for a laugh, and there’s a decent subtext about corporate eco-hypocrisy. The CG-enhanced animals don’t talk, and the comedy is as broad as a barn — no face goes unsprayed by skunks, no crotch unsplashed by sprinklers — but kids, not to mention grown-up fans of knockabout comedy, will howl like hyenas.


Verdict
Goofball fun that will have kids - big and small - rolling in the aisles.

Furry Vengeance

Children might might get something out of it, but with clumsy directing and lazy writing, most will find Furry Vengeance devoid of laughs, interest, or commentary. ... More

Funny, One To See.

Furry Vengeance is a very funny yet touching movie to check out with the whole family. Brendan Fraser is his usual goof ball comdey genius, Brooke Sheilds looks like she's having fun and the animals are very cute. Why it should be given three stars by Empire is beyond me, a four is worthy enough if there's nothing negative to be said. ... More

RE: The only good review for this film

Three stars? Jesus it's the apocalypse! The trailer looked like the worst film ever made and it's been panned by just about every other reviewer. ... More

The only good review for this film

That's quite left-field considering it's only got 2% on Rotten Tomatoes ... More
