Over the Hedge Box Office: $155,019,340
The big theme of these films is actually kind of sad when you think about it: animals having to band together against the humans threatening their environment. In Open Season, the animals are trying to avoid hunters and Over the Hedge has en entire ecosystem in danger when a suburban neighborhood pops up while the animals were hibernating. At their core, both movies are telling us one big thing: humans are the biggest threat to animals that there is. Which is totally messed up! Neither have really gone down in the kids-movie hall of fame and maybe that’s for the best with these dark plots!
