Critic Reviews

  1. Martin Lawrence and Ashton Kutcher may seem like an odd-sounding comedy team, but in some weird way, they click as voice-actors and cartoon buddies in Open Season.
  2. Given that so many people have dismissed Ashton Kutcher as a superficial pretty boy, it seems a little ironic that his best work this week is two-dimensional: He makes a passable action hero in "The Guardian," but he's downright adorable in Open Season, a cheerful animated comedy built on his winningly loose voice performance.

    Though silly and predictable, this animated comedy has stunning visuals, a catchy soundtrack and charming characters that are family-friendly crowd-pleasers.
  4. Despite that nagging whiff of familiarity, there are enough character quirks and inspired bits of funny business to carry this amiable if slight tale.
  5. Reviewed by: Justin Chang
    A witty, warmly crafted chestnut.
  6. The film wraps mindless cartoon violence and a few fart jokes around life lessons about friendship and responsibility. Kids should like it; parents won't mind it.

    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.
