Empire Magazine

David Hughes

Fraser’s gift for goofball comedy gets a full workout, Brooke Shields proves game for a laugh, and there’s a decent subtext about corporate eco-hypocrisy. The CG-enhanced animals don’t talk, and the comedy is as broad as a barn — no face goes unsprayed by skunks, no crotch unsplashed by sprinklers — but kids, not to mention grown-up fans of knockabout comedy, will howl like hyenas.

The New York Times

Mike Hale

Mr. Fraser and Brooke Shields, as Sanders’s wife, soldier bravely, if a bit grimly, through this assault on common sense. They appear to be having a lot more fun in the gag reels that accompany the closing credits, fondly mocking some of their previous films. It’s a bit cruel to the members of the audience, though, who will be wondering why they couldn’t have watched “Blue Lagoon” or “Encino Man” instead.

The Observer

Philip French

This crude movie revives the eco-horror pictures of the 1950s and '60s as green comedy.

Time Out

Derek Adams

Fuzzy elements of Chuck Jones’s unruly style are evident in some of the more amusing scenes and Fraser’s not overly incompetent as the butt of so much schadenfreude. But, strewth, did they have to pad it out with so many repeated pratfalls and inconsequential guff? It should play well enough with the under tens, mind.

The Sunday Times

Edward Porter

The sight of Fraser being repeatedly punched in the face by a raccoon, complete with slapstick sound effects, has a certain appeal, and the film isn’t pretending to be anything other than knockabout nonsense for small children.

Variety

Joe Leydon

Even as their parents fidget restlessly in their seats, small children easily amused by precocious animals and pratfalling grown-ups may have a dandy time with "Furry Vengeance." But there's little hope that this broadly played, lamely written and overall overbearing comedy will corral many ticketbuyers old enough for solo jaunts to the megaplex.

The script, however, stinks like the endless skunk jokes.

...frankly unendurable family comedy.

Anthony Quinn

Brendan Fraser, once a promising talent, has somehow crash landed in the comedy graveyard known as Family Entertainment.

Nicholas Barber

I don't know how many times you can bear to see Fraser splashed with coffee, water and whatever it is that skunks spray from their rear ends, but you'll see it several times more if you subject yourself to this.

The Los Angeles Times

Glenn Whipp

You'd think that if you had an up-with-the-environment family movie in the can, you would have tied it to Earth Day and opened it last weekend. Unless, of course, that movie is "Furry Vengeance," a film so exhausting in its mean-spirited unfunny business that it would prompt Al Gore to empty his recycling bin and light a match to the contents — and the plastic bin itself — in full view of news camera crews.

This is one of the few recent Hollywood movies where Botox might have improved the performances.
