    A runt in 2006's animated litter, Open Season is unfunny, boring, and poorly animated. The characters are relatively charming and there's some fun action scenes, but the film borrows many personalities from previous animated films. Overall Rating: 38

    Utter Failure!! The voice acting was over the top, making it childish as usual, the script was so conventional, the film had nothing to offer but some cute animated animals

    While "Open Season" strays far far away from being anything great in film animation, it isn't the worst animated film I've seen pushed in recent years but really doesn't have anything new or original to say. Let me start by saying that I wasn't feeling the voice work at all, sorry it was amateur at best and the story was all a mash-up of already worn out cliches and jokes that were done before and better too. The whole film, despite it's at times impressive visuals, was amateur and I felt like I was watching a straight to video release or for television animated feature. Guess this may explain why the next two films in the Open Season franchise were indeed straight to video. Oh well, nothing new here but it makes an entertaining and mindless flick most kids will enjoy.

    Funny but too much toilet humor for kids. If it was more mature and the jokes were better, this would've been great.
