thumbs up

"What Furry lacks in originality it makes up for in cleverness. The script boasts sharp dialogue, nimbly executed sight gags and a few well-placed jabs at those corporations that use their alleged greenness for marketing purposes."

- Chris Hewitt

thumbs down

"Even by the standards of movies intended to make 5-year-olds laugh... Furry Vengeance is unbearable... The jokes wouldn’t pass muster on the Disney Channel, the story consists of an escalating series of critter attacks, and the previously mentioned special effects are surprisingly cheap-looking."

- Mike Hale
