  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. Reviewed by: Angel Cohn
    Though silly and predictable, this animated comedy has stunning visuals, a catchy soundtrack and charming characters that are family-friendly crowd-pleasers.

    A witty, warmly crafted chestnut.
  4. 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.
  5. 50
    As cartoon rip-offs go, Open Season can be surprisingly entertaining, in a made-for-6-year-olds kind of way.
  6. 33
    No one makes it out of this laughless mess unscathed.
  7. It's a tired rehash of animation cliches that distinguishes itself only by the extent to which it's crammed full of scatology and gleeful violence to animals, and otherwise panders to the worst instincts of its audience.

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

    Great fun for the kids and adults! The animation is great and the colors jump from the screen. Great family fun.

    Open Season is a very funny animated comedy. There is enough charm and funny moments to make this worth watching. The story is okay, which is the only real weak point. Expand

    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. Expand

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

    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. Expand
