Critic Reviews

  1. 60
    With a slick visual style similar to "Monster House", Open Season trots out tropes that recent animated classics have done with more wit and smarts.
  2. 60
    An amusing if slight excursion into nature with a group of animals who turn the tables on their collective nemeses, the hunters.
  3. The overfamiliar Open Season feels like just another CG 'toon in our 'toon-glutted times.
  4. 50
    On the plus side, Open Season enjoys a clear narrative, real rooting interest and good interspecies rapport. On the downside, there’s a surfeit of cruel bunny-rabbit gags.
  5. 50
    Periodic bursts of cleverness and eye-popping imagery, further enhanced in the 3-D Imax version, can't disguise that this is just another movie full of jive-talking computer-generated animals with little new to say.
  6. 50
    As cartoon rip-offs go, Open Season can be surprisingly entertaining, in a made-for-6-year-olds kind of way.

    Great and charming film. The story was original and the animation had a cool Hanna-Barbera 3-d look to it.

    Mildly funny and at least half-decent, but sooo unimportant and forgettable when there are such better, less cliched movies out there.

    Well, you know, nothing much happens...which is alright if the characters are adorable...but they seem as unimaginative as the story.
