Furry Vengeance review

Furry Vengeance (PG, 91 mins)
Director: Roger Kumble
★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
In which Brendan Fraser is a developer whose company plans to tear down a forest in order to put up a housing estate. So the CGI assisted animals fight back in this abysmal excuse for a family comedy, generally involving Fraser being hit in the crotch or sprayed in the face with a variety of excreta as the raccoons, skunks and birds torment him with the aid of terrible special effects. The usually amiable Fraser becomes no more than a human punching bag and because it’s so cheap, everything is reaction shot and aftermath, as the critters use teamwork and nature to overcome their technologically superior enemies. It was irritating when the Ewoks did it in Return of the Jedi, and it sure as hell ain’t funny now.
