Open Season: Grizzly's day out!!
Apr 22, 2007 07:29 PM 1492 Views






I love animated movies and I also love animal movies. So when an

animated movie with lot of animals comes by it immediately is within my

radar of movies to check out. So Open Season

was one of the movies that I had earmarked to see for a long time and

finally I was able to get hold of the movie and I sure enjoyed it.


Boog(Voiced by Martin Lawrence) is a domesticated Grizzly

Bear who is enjoying a very happy life. But, one good deed is going to

turn his life on it's heads. Boog helps Elliot(Voiced by Ashton Kutcher) escape from a cruel hunter, Shaw(Voiced by Gary Sinise).

Shaw sees this and vows revenge against Boog. Meanwhile Elliot sneaks

into Boog's garage and coaxes him to come out with him. Once on the

out, Boog and Elliot vandalize a shop in search of chocolates. As a

consequence Boog is banished to the woods so that for the first time in

his life, he is on his own.

Boog is shocked and decides to find his way back to the garage.

There is only one hitch, he does not know the way back. So he has to

count on the person who got him in all this trouble to take him out of

the trouble and that is Elliot. Also the Open Season is round the

corner and the hunters are getting ready to hunt the animals in the


So can Boog count on Elliot to bring him back to garage before the Open Season? Check out Open Season for a laugh riot.

Critic's Viewpoint

One of the first things that struck me about Open Season was that Sony Pictures were trying to recreate the magic of Shrek with Open Season. So we had the loud mouthed Elliot looking very suspiciously like the Donkey in Shrek

and we had the more silent and huge Boog much on the lines of Shrek.

Given that comparison, I must say that Ashton Kutcher as Elliot has

given a performance that rivalled Eddie Murphy's as Donkey. Martin

Lawrance as Boog was a nice contrast to the fast speaking Kutcher. It

seemed that at any point Kutcher was two times faster in speaking than

Martin. Gary Sinise as Shaw also has given a good background voice to

the villain in the piece.

Coming to the animation, they were simply excellent. I simply loved

the way Boog's hair used to flutter in the air and it seemed pretty

good. Another thing that hit me was the flexibility in each of the

characters and each of these were simply moving in all directions and

there did not seem to be a single bone in any animals body. All in all

the characters and their animations was excellent.

One of the most important aspects of any animated movies is the comedy in the dialogs and the dialogs in Open Season

were quite decent. Most of the comic in the dialogs were situational as

in when Elliot says he feels light headed, his antler falls off. The

combo of dialogs with the situations and the animation makes it great.

On the flip side though, the real fun part that is once the Open Season

begins has been kept very small. I expected that to be at least 30% of

the movie, but it turns out to be only a very small part. I think that

would have provided more options for laughs and great scenes, but that

sadly has been kept to a minimum.


All in all Open Season is another fun animated movie. The

movie good and enjoyable and can be seen with the whole family. But,

the movie does not reach the levels of Ice Age or Monsters Inc. or Shrek.

I would give this movie a three and half star, but as half stars are

not available here, I would upgrade it to a four star rating for the

Boogster and the Incredible Mr. E.
