A scheming raccoon fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food, by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating...and learns a lesson about family himself.

On a special trip outside the hive, Barry's life is saved by Vanessa, a florist in New York City. As their relationship blossoms, he discovers humans actually eat honey, and subsequently decides to sue them.

Near the very end of the credits the conversation about which comes first, the chicken or the egg??, comes up again. The two rodents want to take an egg or a chicken and make a chicken farm to make their own eggs. However, they cannot deside if they need a chicken or an egg. Finally, Rocky the Rooster pipes in and says to "please pipe down". See more »
Now, knowing what's in store for us this summer, I am probably not out on a limb saying this, but this should be the best film this summer, if not this year.
Full of wit, sight gags, homage to prison escape movies, yet completely adorable and exciting to even very young children, this movie has everything you would want in a movie. I was lucky enough to catch it at a sneak preview while on vacation with my 19-year-old son while in San Francisco, and even at the price of NINE BUCKS, it was worth it.
All this and voices from two Ab Fab actresses!
