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

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

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

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.

A story that balances gentle messages with enough goofy anarchy to please any kid.
