The "forest side" of the hedge is based on the hedge in front of DreamWorks. The exterior of the hedge is based on the vines growing in their parking garage. The hedge is approximately seven feet tall. See more »

At the end of the rolling credits, RJ (the raccoon) is seen demonstrating to his new family how to operate/hack the same vending machine shown at the beginning of the film into delivering all product. Unfortunately his efforts at obtaining product was stifled by the now vended product blocking the access door. See more »
There's nothing not to like about this fantastic, engaging film--other than the fact that Avril Lavigne is lackluster in her big-screen debut. But her role has little impact on the bigger picture, so it's easy to skip over. Kids and adults will get an equally big kick out of OTH--it provides astute commentary on Americans' gluttonous relationship to food and precarious understanding of the animals that live on the outskirts of our lives; kids will love the brilliant animation, lovable characters and simple yet clever plot. It's a film about good vs. evil, and yes, lessons are learned. But it's far more than just a good way to fill two hours with your kids. I think it'll rank up there as one of Dreamworks' best films to date.
