Open Season (2006) PG - 3½ Stars

Another cute animated story line that I' sure does more for the children than it did for me but none the less still cute. A deer gets a huge grizzly in over his head till both have to leave before hunting season. Not knowing where to go and what to do, the two befriend other creatures in the woods, to chase away the hunters when the animals take over.

Raised by the park ranger Beth (Debra Messing) in her garage ever since he was a just a cub, 900-pound grizzly Boog (Martin Lawrence) is getting too big to stay in the city. When Elliot (Ashton Kutcher) a mule deer pulls up strapped to the hood of a jeep, Boog helps free him just a bit so he can get away. The hunters are outraged and order Boog up for fair game in hunting season. Beth takes her dear friend to the top of a hillside along with Elliot so they'll be out of reach this "Open Season." But Boog doesn't know what to do by not having his food brought to him and the forest can be a scary place. The two join forces with all the other forest animals and together, turn the tables on the hunters.
