Storyline

Hoping to make enough money through an overseas employer to live comfortably, Real Estate Developer Dan Sanders manages to convince his son, Tyler, and wife, Tammy, to re-locate in a remote corner of Oregon. Tyler does seem content after he meets with lovely Amber, but Tammy is concerned about her husband when he near-hysterically claims that local creatures, including beavers, ravens, bears, fox, etc. have joined forces to sabotage his project.

Brendan Fraser and Brooke Shields elevate this film to a watchable status... But it's otherwise pretty terrible...

Ah, "Furry Vengeance"... this is a classic case of a terribly-made film, with terribly-likable actors. Brendan Fraser and Brooke Shields lead the cast with good performances, and the film does have some fun, quirky characters played well by actors including Ken Jeong, Rob Riggle and Angela Kinsey.

The film is your basic "save the rainforest" kids movie, where cute animals torment our main character (Fraser as Dan Sanders), whom is plowing down parts of a forest to make room for urban development. Shields (gorgeous and talented, and surprisingly good in this movie considering the material she has to work with) plays his wife, while Matt Prokop plays his son, whom doesn't like what he is doing.

The script is quite a mess. It's essentially "Home Alone" with animals, as Fraser, who looks like he's having fun in his role, is hit with various almost Rube-Goldberg-like traps set by the animals. It is very cartooney and outlandish.

The film also sports some abysmal special effects. The CGI for the animals is cheap and unpolished, and the animations look like generic tests. It was like the studio ripped the film away from the CG artists halfway through making the effects- they look unfinished.

I dunno... the script is awful, the effects are bad, the direction is generic, the jokes are often unfunny. But somehow, I can't give this a 1 out of 10 as I should, because I really liked the cast, and they made it just bearable to sit through.

I'm giving this a 4 out of 10. Bad movie, great cast and just a few laughs that worked.
