Open Season


Time Out says

In yet another PETA-pleasing romp, domesticated grizzly Boog (Lawrence) is unceremoniously dropped into the woods after his manic antics jeopardize his codependent relationship with a motherly forest ranger. Initially anxious about life without plumbing or convenience stores, the bear and his sidekick, Elliot (Kutcher), soon discover a greater concern: Hunting season is just three days away, and—raising the intriguing prospect of a CGI Dick Cheney—someone must fend off the rifle-toting intruders. Not surprisingly, Boog adapts to the wild, assembling a makeshift team of forest critters for the effort, but the predictable plot is made more tolerable by the film’s clever animation.
