Furry Vengeance is a 2010 American comedy film directed by Roger Kumble and written by Michael Carnes and Josh Gilbert. It stars Brendan Fraser, Brooke Shields, and Ken Jeong with Dee Bradley Baker as vocal effects for the animals. It was theatrically released on April 30, 2010.

Plot

When Dan Sanders takes a job overseeing the construction of a supposedly "green" housing development in the Oregon woods, he thinks his greatest challenge will be helping his urban-oriented family adjust to country life while simultaneously trying to keep his demanding boss happy. But, when the local animals learn that Dan is in charge of their habitat's destruction, the fur flies in an all-out battle between man and nature.

Why It Sucks

  1. Dan Sanders (Brendan Fraser's character) gets tormented by the animals throughout the entire movie.
    • He gets flung into a bee's nest and sprayed on by skunks in his car. He also gets covered in feces after falling down a hill in a Porta potty (thankfully we don't see him covered in feces.)
  2. The movie tries to portray the animals as the heroes, but they are constantly torturing Mr. Sanders which makes them impossible to root for.
  3. Horrible acting, especially from Ken Jeong and Brooke Shields.
  4. Although this is a family film, the humor is extremely unfunny, mean-spirited, nonsensical and disgusting.
  5. Furry Vengeance killed the careers of its cast and crew.
    • Director Roger Kumble (the director of the 1999 film Cruel Intentions) hurt his career so badly that he didn't direct another film until 2019.
    • Brendan Fraser only makes small supporting roles in live-action and animated movies and TV series due to the failure of this film, until he was announced as part of the main cast of Darren Aronofsky's upcoming film The Whale.
    • Alice Drummond essentially retired from acting before her death on November 30, 2016.
    • Writer Michael Carnes hasn't written another mainstream film.
    • It severely damaged Robert Simonds' career as a producer, being relegated to an executive producer.
  6. Overuse of cartoon sound effects, which is irritating.
  7. Terrible CGI effects, especially on the animals.
  8. Lackluster and bad musical score from Edward Shearmur.
  9. Abysmal editing. For example, after Dan's face is swollen from the bee stings, in the very next scene the bee stings are gone.
  10. The DVD cover has a dumb, it had "best movie ever" review on it with five stars when it almost got universally panned by critics and audiences.
  11. The end credits is so unspeakably desperately atrocious.

Reception

Upon its release, Furry Vengeance was universally panned by critics and audiences. The film currently holds a 7% "rotten" rating on Rotten Tomatoes with an average score of 2.53 out of 10 and a critics consensus that reads, "A thin premise stretched far beyond serviceable length, Furry Vengeance subjects Brendan Fraser - and the audience - to 92 minutes of abuse." It also holds a 23 out of 100 on Metacritic. It was the lowest rated film of 2010, until the release of The Last Airbender, which scored a 6%.

Box Office

The film only grossed $36.2 million worldwide against a budget of $35 million. It was declared a box office disaster, despite it barely making it's money back.

Awards and Nominations

The film earned a Worst Picture nomination from the Houston Film Critics Society. It was nominated for two Golden Raspberry Awards for Worst Actress and Supporting Actor.

Trivia

  • Brendan Fraser admitted that he was ashamed of being in this film.

I personally think the movie would've been a lot more funnier and better if they had actual furry's instead of the terrible CGI animals.

To add to that, a better film where Brendan Fraser interacts with animals was the first George of the Jungle and I remember seeing that in the theater when I was a kid. I am grateful I never saw this in the theater or on home media.

At least, Brendan Fraser is returning to main cast with upcoming film of Darren Aronofsky's The Whale.

I love how they just stamped the "Very Funny" sticker on the poster in desperation
