They both end up stranded together in the woods during hunting season and it's up to the duo to rally all the other forest animals and… Runtime: 86 min Release Date: 29 Sep 2006
I can't understand what everyone is fussing about this film for. I saw it on the IMAX 3D and I honestly thought it was hilarious. I caught myself laughing out loud on many occasions. Seriously, this film is not "violent" by any means. To me, I really felt relieved to see some humor and scenes similar to the old Looney Tunes cartoons that used to be considered great, but are now considered evil and horrible.I took my 4 year old daughter to see this movie as well, and she absolutely loved it. I have no reservations about any of the content in this movie, and I would highly <more>
recommend it to anyone with children. Any of the "adult" humor was tastefully done and, honestly how many small kids are gonna pick up it? The animation was well done, the cast was great, and there were some very creative action scenes in this movie. I wish all of these politically correct hypocrites would stop trying to psychoanalyze every damn film that comes out and bash it into the ground! Bottom line: This movie is outstanding, and it is incredibly funny!!!! GO SEE IT!
Are you kidding me?! 5.5?! I had so much fun watching Open Season! (by Smells_Like_Cheese)
I was very much looking forward to seeing Open Season on it's first weekend, but I was a bit worried when I saw only a 5.5 on IMDb, because normally, most of the users are right about these movies. But my friends and I still wanted to see this fun looking picture, so we saw it tonight and may I say that I am surprised by you IMDb users who didn't like this film, everyone is entitled to an opinion, I agree. But seriously, how could you not like this film? It has amazing animation, fun characters, and hilarious jokes for kids as well as adults! After a bear, Boog, saves a deer, Elliot, <more>
from becoming another trophy for an evil hunter, Shaw, they become instant friends. But since Boog is a pampered bear, Elliot wants in on the room service, but ends up getting Boog in some trouble and back into the woods, together they decide to get back to civilization, trying their best to avoid open season from other hunters as well as getting away from Shaw. My favorite character is the porcupine, he was just so cute, "Buddy!". Especially, the scene where the dame explodes causing a huge wave of water to splash over the woods destroying everything and moving all the animals away from their safe place and the porcupine sees Boog and Elliot and just smiles and happily screams "Buddy!" while getting swooped up into the wave as well! It was so funny! Seriously, people, learn to have some fun, I know this was a kid's movie, but my friends and I had a great time watching this movie. This is one of the best movies I have seen of 2006, hopefully, the rating will go up. To those who loved this movie, thank you for having a good sense of humor, to those who didn't like the movie, just give it another shot, please! :D 10/10
I saw an advance screening of "Open Season" earlier this evening the only advance screening I've ever been to that started at 6pm, which must've been done so kids could see it and still get home at a decent hour .I laughed out loud and heartily during the hour and half watching this movie than I have during all the comedies I seen in the past year. The animation is so good it's distracting during some of the close ups check out the fur on Boog the bear and the main star . And all the forest animals were fully fleshed out character wise and very funny especially the <more>
"take no nonsense" pair of female skunks . They were cute without being precious. And the script was Oscar worthy. If you don't love this film a part of you is dead inside. It's just that good.Summary: There's this bear Boog who does a circus type act in a National park who lives with a park ranger. He later frees a young deer Elliot from the hood of a hunters car the guy hit him and knocked him out before tying him to the hood who follows him home, tempts him with a candy bar, which lead to a little b & e in a convenience store where they pig out on junk food. Through a series of events they both wind up in the forest just as hunting season begins. The animal bond, give the hunters hell and all ends well especially for one of the skunks .Remember how good you thought The Incredibles was?, this movie makes that look like so much ho hum it's not even funny.And if you don't like it, go out and make your own film rather than tear this one apart.
Martin Lawrence and Ashton Kutcher strike again. (by sacoody)
I laughed so much through this movie I know I will have to see it twice because I had to have missed some of the funny parts. Very clean, which was surprising since Lawrence was in it, but so worth the time I spent watching it. It breaks your heart when Beth has to leave Boog in the woods but to see him overcome all the obstacles thrown in his path, is very amusing from the eyes of an animal. Aston Kutcher was hilarious as Eliot. I didn't realize he could be so funny and amusing. This movie I highly recommend to anyone with children regardless of their ages, if you want to spend time with <more>
your children in a clean environment. I intend to go back and take my neighbors children to see it also.
Way beyond Elmer Fudd vs. Bugs Bunny I keep reading reviews saying "been there, done that" ! Not only was it a very cute, entertaining flick, but what a wonderful message regarding animals - anti-hunting, respect their territory and don't try to domesticate what is not meant to be domesticated, even a plug for spay/neuter when they point out Mr. Weenie is "fixed". The animation was good - aside from one or two odd looking creatures the little doe , I thought they were cute. And the campiness of the scenes added a little something different. All the actors who did <more>
voices did a terrific job. I am not a Martin Lawrence fan, but he rocked as Boog. And Ashton as Elliot was hysterical. It's no "Finding Nemo" or "Toy Story" but for a cute flick one afternoon, it's better than expected. Enjoy!
Although the group I went to see this movie was actually trying to get into Jackass 2, we were not disappointed. I laughed out loud at quite a few parts, especially the ones with Elliot the one-antlered deer voice of Ashton Kutcher . He brings the same zany personality to Elliot that he does to Kelso in That 70's show. Martin Lawrence was good also, but wasn't his usual slapstick comedic self. The real scene-stealer, though, was the crazy redneck hunter Shaw voice of Gary Sinise . Although this was a kids' movie, and I suppose Shaw was supposed to be the "bad guy," he <more>
actually came off as the funniest character in the movie. So, this fall, instead of wasting 10 bucks on a poor sequel like the Grudge or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, take a shot with a movie that's sure to entertain: Open Season.
Fun for the whole family! A great start for Sony Pictures Animation! (by ShmuelReuven)
What's a 'unihorn' you may ask? Well, it's a deer that only has one antler, of course. And you'll only see one in the new Sony Pictures Animation film, Open Season, starring Martin Lawrence, Debra Messing, Ashton Kutcher, Gary Sinise, Jon Favreau, and many more.Martin voices the lovable Boog in the film; he's the main attraction of a show at the zoo with his best friend, Beth Debra Messing . Boog also lives with Beth, equipped with his stuffed animal, Dunkleman. On a completely side note, what would a Sony film be without a reference to one of their own. Before Boog <more>
settles in for his comfy night sleep, he checks out Pat Sajak on Wheel of Fortune.They have a great life together doing shows for the fans, even exchanging powerful roars. But that's before Elliot Ashton Kutcher shows up, the hapless one-antlered deer who's been captured by the evil Shaw Gary Sinise . Boog helps Elliot escape and makes Boog's and Beth's life miserable, forcing Beth to send the two animals away into the forest.On his own for the first time, Boog now has to rely on himself, or be stuck with Elliot. And that means figuring out how to go to the bathroom in the wild. That's when he first runs into McSquizzy, the squirrel voiced by Billy Connolly McSquizzy is the ruler of the forest trees, and has a great and powerful squirrel Army to back him up, equipped with thousand of acorns. Without a doubt, McSquizzy is one of the highlights of Open Season! He's got wit, humor, and a ton of Scottish charm.Boog realizes having Elliot around is the only way he'll get back to Beth. So they become 'partners,' much to the dismay of Boog but the delight of Elliot, who just needs a friend. With hunting season right around the corner, the two must work together to sneak around the hunters.But when Shaw breaks the hunting season date, the animals switch their thinking instead of running away, they're going to fight back! And fight back they do! Trying to run away, Boog crosses a dam; unfortunately, his 900 pound body crumbles the wood.That's when Open Season turns into Hill Street Blues! There is one of the most amazing chase scenes I've ever seen in the movies. Boog, Elliot, and their porcupine friend try and escape the gun shots of Shaw but on water. Bobbing and weaving through the water, under water, above water, around rocks great scene! There's even a waterfall at the end to top it off! I have somewhat of a test for animated movies I've been giving myself over the past few years ever since seeing the water scenes in The Incredibles, and noticing how real it looked, I've started to take an eye to the screen. If water doesn't look real, than it doesn't pass the test. Let's just say, Open Season aced my test. This water chase scene goes on for about 5 minutes, maybe a little more; but it's so exciting and amazing to watch! It's not just the water of Open Season, it's the entire field of animation; the animals really come alive on the screen. I'm a huge fan of animation; I think it has to do with the fact that anything done with computer fascinates me. The detailed description of each character, from their eyes, nose, mouth, walk, and hair and in this movie, fur; it's just so amazing! But back to the story - after meeting back up with the group of beavers, led by Reilly voiced by Jon Favreau , some of Elliot's former deer mates Patrick Warburton and Jane Krakowski , and a few other animals, Boog and Elliot team up and go on the attack against the hunters. Bras, plungers, grills, forks, knives, spoons, and basically, anything they can get their hands on sorry, whatever they can get their paws on they use to charge the hunters with.Open Season is directed by Jill Culton, Roger Allers, and Tony Stacchi; each has a number of major credits to their name. Both Tony and Jill make their feature directorial debut on this film; however, Jill has worked at Pixar on the character development for Monsters Inc. and Toy Story. Tony worked on a number of films for ILM including Hook and Ghost. Roger Allers co-directed The Lion King, and has just recently completed The Little Match Girl a short attached to The Little Mermaid.Open Season is a fun and very enjoyable film for kids and families. It's definitely a film you'll be talking about for a long time. And don't forget, you can also check out the film in IMAX 3D, opening at major theaters across the country.
OK... I'm a hunter and I usually roll my eyes at animators with their anti-hunting stance. The ones that make the hunters look like jerks and the animals are much smarter and more in tune with nature... blah, blah, blah! So, this movie does all of that, but I laughed throughout the movie! No one should take themselves so seriously that they can't laugh at what's going on around them! Silly fun, good popcorn movie and entertaining to boot! I've got to admit, I'd never imagine Martin Lawrence as a Grizzly Bear, nor see Ashton Kucher as a one antlered deer, but someone had <more>
insight and imagination! Go and enjoy this silly movie... it has a couple of bathroom jokes, but what doesn't these days!
When I saw "Open Season", my first impression was that the film looked a bit substandard compared to the higher quality Pixar movies which preceded it. While this opinion didn't change much during the course of the movie, I was surprised that I ended up really liking it anyway. Why? Because the writing was so good...and it's worth seeing."Open Season" is the story of Boog the Grizzly who was raised by a forest ranger. When he is returned to the wild, Boog is totally out of his element and is assisted by a chatty and occasionally annoying mule deer. As the story <more>
progresses, they seem to be doing a horrible job of finding civilization and end up nearly being killed because hunting season has just opened. Can the pair and their many new forest friends manage to survive and thrive against the odds?The story is in many ways reminiscent of "Ice Age" and "Shrek" where you have a big creature who is constantly annoyed by a smaller and very chatty creature who insists on being friends. Don't expect 100% originality in this department. However, why I enjoyed the film so much are all the wonderful supporting characters--all of which were likable, funny and cute. Overall, quite a bit of fun and despite its shortcomings, a terrific story.
