Boog and Elliot are back for more crazy adventures. After falling head over hooves in love with Giselle, Elliot's road to the altar takes a slight detour when Mr. Weenie is kidnapped by a group of pampered pets determined to return him to his owners. Boog, Elliot, McSquizzy, Buddy and the rest of the woodland creatures launch a full-scale rescue mission for their sausage-shaped friend and soon find themselves in enemy camp: the world of the pets. Led by a toy poodle named Fifi, the pets do not plan to let Mr. Weenie go without a fight. Can a toy poodle REALLY bring down an 900-pound grizzly bear? Will Elliot ever marry Giselle? Find out in "Open Season 2."
Commitment can be a scary concept, especially when it means "forever and ever." When Open Season concluded, Boog the bear and the domesticated dog Mr. Weenie had run off into the woods to join the wild animals and buck Elliot had become smitten with doe Giselle. Open Season 2 opens with a nervous Elliot and a beaming Giselle about to take their wedding nuptials, while Mr. Weenie is being enticed back to captivity by a trail of dog biscuits. Rationalizing that he's a good friend above all else, Elliot leaves Giselle at the altar and sets out to save Mr. Weenie. Boog, McSquizzy, Buddy, and the rest of the forest gang join Elliot on his quest, followed by Giselle who quickly proves invaluable to the team. New characters Roberto, Fifi, and a host of other domestic pets try to convince Mr. Weenie that sacrificing some freedom is a small price to pay for being loved, but in the end only Mr. Weenie can decide which is the right world for him. Likewise, Elliot must decide whether marriage entails more commitment than he can handle. Open Season 2 has some funny moments, but the plot is fairly weak and it's just not as good as the first movie. The kids that previewed the film found it entertaining, but preferred the original Open Season, and most parents will probably be just as happy skipping Open Season 2. Bonus features include 14-minutes of voice talent interview footage (with mostly new voice talent since few actors returned for this second film), 5 fairly basic DVD games, and a "how to draw" Boog, Elliot, and Fifi tutorial. There are also 3 storyboarded deleted scenes and Baha Men's "Who Let the Dogs Out" music video. (Ages 3 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

I think people are being a little harsh in some of their reviews. Remember this is a kid's movie. So while it may be boring to you, it may not be to the kids. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Brittani
