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

    Cute, even if it's bursting with cliches.

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

    This movie starts off well and ends well, it is the middle that struggles. I am uncertain how you can make a kids movie too long, but they did it. The middle drags and drags and when it finally finds its comical tune the song is over.

    Open Season is the average annoying kids movie with animals that talk. I found it to be one of those animated movies where all of the character motivations are ones you don't like, and it's one of those movies that you keep checking your watch to see when it will end.

    Open Season closes interest.
    A likeable but somewhat empty tale of a bear and a buck. There is no astounding storyline, or incredible animation. From beginning to end Open Season leaves the door open but never looks inside.

    The overfamiliar Open Season feels like just another CG 'toon in our 'toon-glutted times.

    Little more than paint-by-numbers filmmaking, and it fails in the most important charge of any children's movie: to transport its young and impressionable audience to a world where anything is possible, rather than to one where everything’s been thought of already.

    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.
