Fraser gets to be a kid in 'Furry Vengeance'

LOS ANGELES In "Furry Vengeance," Brendan Fraser works for a developer who plans to turn a forest into a housing development.

The animals of the forest have other plans, and go to work to make sure their homes are not destroyed in the name of greed. Children are the target audience for this film.

"This picture takes advantage of what kids love -- animals and forest creatures," said Fraser. "They're really behind the idea, 'You're indignant! You can't kick them out of their own house, which is a forest.'"

Even though Fraser has kids of his own, he too still feels like a kid.

"They're like the little adults. They'll say 'Dad, it's time to go to school.' You can't condescend. You can't kid a kid. You can't," said Fraser. "I know it sounds silly to say, but they know they are the little barometer that's gonna say, 'Uh-uh, not working.'"

Fraser loved working with his movie wife in the film, Brooke Shields.

"She is a wonderful person," said Fraser. "I think she has a strand of Lucille Ball, or something, in her in this movie."

Fraser also had fun with his comedic misadventures in the movie.

"I was going to work every day thinking, 'Well, what are you going to do to me today? Being thrown against the ground?' Well, that's a light day," said Fraser.

"Furry Vengeance" is rated PG.
