OVER THE HEDGE is an animated film in which a group of animals come out of hibernation to find a new housing development next to their forest home.

Violence

There are action sequences including a tortoise character in dangerous situations in the human environment, dodging objects falling from a barbecue (including knives), having to dodge the blades of a lawn mower and being blown into the sky by a gas barbecue. In other scenes the animals are threatened by humans, including an exterminator who sets up various traps to catch and kill them, and a possum character who appears to have been hit by a car. But it is quickly revealed that the possum is only playing dead. In one scene some animals are caught and put in cages, with younger characters afraid that they might die. But the animals are soon rescued in an extended chase sequence.

Mild language includes use of 'butt'.

There is mild toilet humour, including a skunk character whose scent resembles flatulence, a young character who says he can burp his "A, B, Cs" and begins to demonstrate this, and a character who advises his fellow animals to "just lie down, roll over and give your privates a good licking" if they encounter humans.
