Movie Review by Misty
February 15th, 2007

Is that short for Boog-er?

I just watched this animated film last night with my sister. We both thought it was cute and pretty funny in most parts.

Open Season is about a Grizzly Bear (Boog with the voice of Martin Lawrence) who's been domesticated by a very loving Park Ranger (Beth with Debra Messing's voice). She treats him like a dog, basically. He loves his comfortable life in the small mountain town of Timberline. Performing daily for children and tourists on a unicycle is fun for him too. One day his world is flipped upside down by a clumsy, but funny young Deer (Elliot with the voice of Ashton Kutcher) who comes into to town on the hood of a local menace hunter's (Shaw with the voice of Gary Sinise) truck sporting only one antler after being run down by the hunter.
Boog reluctantly helps Elliot get free from the hunter and then the madness begins, so to speak. Elliot thinks that Boog is a prisoner as well and tries to return the favor by "freeing" Boog from Beth's garage. The bear is finally coaxed out of the garage by a candy bar that Elliot found in the trash in town. From then on Boog's life is in for drastic changes, including being dropped off in the forest and having a fight everywhere he turns from other animals protecting their turfs.
Boog and Elliot have an adventure and ultimately drag the whole forest into it just trying to get home before hunting season starts in just 2 days. It's a fun-filled story with a pretty cool meaning and it does have a little bit of subtle adult humor to keep the adults into it as much as the kids are, without being too much for the kiddies. Check it out.

I thought it was really funny, too. This is one of the better animated movies in the last year.

I was actually impressed with Kutcher and thought that he did a better job than could be expected. As for the rest of the movie, it bored me silly.

I was actually very pleased with Open Season, way better than I expected and by far the best animated animal talking films of 2006 compared to Barnyard
