Over Our Hedge

During my 4-day vacation in New Haven which I spent with my lovely friends last week I saw Over the Hedge (2006) directed by Tim Johnson and Karey Kirkpatrick. It was the best animation I have seen in the last two years. Like other animation movies it spreads a moral message: the values of family life; but it does not stop there. The story is original and it is very well done. In addition to the interesting story the voices of Bruce Willis (RJ) Garry Shandling (Verne) Steve Carell (Hammy) William Shatner (Ozzi) Wanda Sykes (Stella)… and my favorite Omid Djalili (Tiger- a Persian Cat) make it more exciting.

You should see Over the Hedge especially if you are living on the other side of the hedge like us. A week ago after midnight my adorable husband discovered this Gigantic Raccoon eating garbage from the garbage can in front of our apartment. It is a pity that our neighbors don’t bother to close the lid and believe me there is enough sign around it to inform them that they should do this. I took pictures of the raccoon and decided to call him/her GR: the Gigantic Raccoon.
