Over the Hedge (2006)
Just whose backyard is it, anyway? Spring has sprung, and Verne and his woodland friends awaken from their long winter's nap to discover that a large, green hedge has cropped up right through the middle of their once-natural habitat. Enter RJ, an opportunistic raccoon who explains that the world beyond the hedge is "the gateway to the good life" where peculiar creatures called humans live to eat, rather than eat to live. "For humans," RJ proclaims, "enough is never enough." Suspicious and even a little jealous of the charismatic smooth-talking RJ, the ever cautious Verne wants to keep his blended family safely on their side of the hedge. But, proving the adage that one man's garbage is another man's--or, rather, animal's--treasure, the manipulative RJ has his own reasons for convincing the woodland band that there is little to fear and everything to gain from their over-indulgent new neighbors.

Unfortunately, Lifesavers is going to be evicted so the landlord can turn the building into a condominium complex. Philip, however, remains optimistic. He always sees the light at the end of the tunnel, even though it's inevitably the headlight of the next oncoming train. Philip's Lifesavers is a place where the rescuers need help, where the lines of communication are hopelessly tangled, where anxious callers get cut off.
