Movie Review by Jarrod
May 4th, 2010

'Furry Vengeance' is, without a doubt, one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Its title should be a good indication of its quality, and if that were not enough, then a summary of its core premise would probably suffice. It is simply an abomination. It is unfunny, loathsome, moronic, vile, inept, and obnoxious; to use the nicer adjectives I can think of.

The movie will forever tarnish the reputation of its stars, especially Brendan Fraser, whose involvement could perhaps have been expected; once a talented and very handsome actor, Fraser seems to have let himself go, and no longer cares either about his appearance or career. What compelled him to participate in this travesty is beyond me. I still remember him in Gods and Monsters, The Quiet American, and Crash. But then, there is Dudley Do-Right and Monkeybone. He should fire his agent, or whoever suggested that he take this role.

Hiyao Miyazaki had made numerous films with a strong ecological message; in Princess Mononoke, tribes of animals are engaged in a war against the humans seeking to destroy their habitats for the purposes of industrial expansion and resource mining. Though it pains me to mention 'Furry Vengeance' in the same sentence or paragraph as Princess Mononoke, I will only to illustrate that it follows that same basic principle; human land developer Dan Sanders (Fraser) is supervising a construction project that threatens to lead to a campaign of deforestation, and this provokes a response from the local wildlife, the skunks, raccoons, bears, and various other creatures, who decide to terrorize Dan in an effort to convince him to abandon the project.

That is all that really needs to be said about the dim-witted plot, which is comprised almost entirely of gross, cruel, and painfully inappropriate or distasteful skits that incorporate slapstick with shameful displays of racial and ethnic stereotyping (particularly when it comes to Asians and Native Americans).

The goal of the animals is to humiliate and abuse their human adversaries, and they succeed tremendously, with one persistent raccoon serving as Dan's primary rival, along with a skunk that repeatedly sprays him with its pungent musk. Dan has a family; wife Tammy (Brooke Shields) and son Tyler (Matt Prokop), who both disagree with him, and disapprove of the methods he has employed. The animals are not cute and cuddly, but rather vicious and mean. A total disaster.
