Animated animal buddy flick is crude but funny.

[A] beautifully animated and funny, if formulaic, odd-couple comedy.

The animation is pleasing and Billy Connolly gives a hilarious turn as a loud-mouthed, bossy squirrel, who has never heard the notion that size intimidates

Lawrence proves much less irritating as an animated bear than he does in his real-life performances.

I have to say that the humour here (some of it Pythonesque) is mostly spot on and, at times, mischievously dark.

Sony Pictures bags a warm and furry comedy stocked with cute critters and gentle lessons about leaving the nest.

...a computer-animated tale best suited for the pre-teen demographic, yet there are enough genuine, high-energy laughs to amuse viewers of just about any age.

It's convention and cliches that drive the new computer-animated movie "Open Season," an overly familiar yet nevertheless likable film that could have been exceptional had it attempted something fresh within the genre.

Now that we've made one of the best computer-generated talking-animal-on-an-odyssey movies in the brief but busy history of the genre, can we please, please move on?

A little bit like Over the Hedge, and a lot like the upcoming Flushed Away, in which an animated house mouse is forced to fend for himself in the sewers of London, Open Season may sound a bit familiar, but it is never dull.

The tale, is very familiar but is freshened by amusing dialogue, with laughs for both the youngsters and the adults who accompany them.

The Guardian is a tribute to the grit and courage and, moreover, the blessed competence of the Coast Guard pilots and rescue swimmers.

September 29, 2006

A fun story thanks to animals going 'wild' in a convenience store, cagey squirrels, and the wacky things you can do with rabbits. If it's open season on laughs, this movie bags almost the limit.

It's not deep and not totally original. But Open Season is whiplash quick with the gags and spot-on with the funny voices.

Open Season is a rambunctious blast. It's Sony Pictures Animation's first full-length feature film and no effort was spared getting it right.

What elevates Season is the wit and enthusiasm of its voice actors -- particularly Kutcher and Sinise. They both sound like they're having a fantastic time, and it's hard not to be swept along with them.
