In Sony Pictures Animation's first feature film, the animated action adventure comedy Open Season, the odd are about to get even. Boog (Martin Lawrence), a domesticated grizzly bear with no survival skills, has his perfect world turned upside down when he meets Elliot (Ashton Kutcher) a scrawny, fast-talking mule deer. When Elliot convinces Boog to leave his cushy home in a park ranger's garage to try a taste of the great outdoors, things quickly spiral out of control. Relocated to the forest with open season only three days away, Boog and Elliot must acclimate in a hurry. They must join forces to unite the woodland creatures and take the forest back!
Growing up can be a confusing journey fraught with difficult choices. Boog (Martin Lawrence) is a domesticated Grizzly Bear who leads a perfectly happy life inside of Park Ranger Beth's (Debra Messing) garage, but a chance meeting with an overly energetic mule deer named Elliot (Ashton Kutcher) quickly changes everything and lands Boog high in the forest a few days before the opening of hunting season. Devoid of even the most basic survival skills, Boog and Elliot stumble through the woods and find themselves at the mercy of every forest animal from skunks to chipmunks as well as an evil hunter named Shaw (Gary Sinise). After unintentionally inciting and endangering an entire forest full of clever animals, Boog and Elliot come to the realization that only by banding together do the forest animals stand a chance of outsmarting the hunters and ensuring their own survival. This first animated film from Sony Pictures Animation takes its inspiration from cartoonist Steve Moore (In the Bleachers) and features animals with human-like intelligence, a vibrant color palate, and skilled animation that makes everything from the wind blowing Boo's fur to the animals' wild trip down the falls simply breathtaking. While it doesn't quite live up to Over the Hedge, Open Season is an entertaining production that explores the difficult process of maturation, the universal need for acceptance, and the true value of friendship.

I pretty much purchased this movie just to add another 3D title to my movie collection. So needless to say I had it for quite a while before ever viewing it. However after viewing this movie, We wish we had watched it sooner! Our entire family found the movie very well done. The story line was whimsical and at times a real treat. I would consider this to be a great movie for the entire family, including the very young ones.
The 3D was done very well. I have seen better, but this by no means was poor. There where a few times when the 3D was a little underwhelming and I may have noticed a slight ghosting here and there but all in all a pretty decent 3D rendering is what you can expect.
I will sum this review up with this advice. If you are at all on the fence about whether you should buy this movie or not, I would suggest you do, and enjoy it.
I know we sure did!

Update*Piranhas 3D took the lead for me, followed by Resident Evil:Afterlife 3D...if you can deal with all the naked people in Piranhas its a hoot!
THE STORY: True, it isn't a new formula at work here, which should be no real surprise from the mainstream media outlets these days, but it is highly entertaining. While it wouldn't win any Academy Awards for best screenplay, the story is engagingly told and voice talent keeps it fun. If you want zany and over the top buy some Jerry Lewis movies! This movie should appeal to all age groups.
THE SOUND: I'm sure my receiver is showing its age at not be able to fully decode the new formats. It will usually default to THX, which is not the best compromise. Maybe I'll update this review after I can fully evaluate the sound, but I'm sure I'm not alone in this respect.
EXTRAS: I don't really spend time with these, unless its a Klingon Diction Seminar (jk)
Buy it! Most folks will be glad they did.
Having said that, I do have to agree, the 3D aspects in this movie was just awesome!!! If you are looking for a movie just based on 3Dness, this is a definate purchase.....
