OPEN SEASON an animated action-adventure follows the fortunes of two forest-animal misfits. Boog (Martin Lawrence) is a gentle and domesticated bear Elliot (Ashton Kutcher) is an absentminded and accident-prone deer who has been shunned by his herd. Together they struggle to adapt to the ways of life in the wild and on their own. Boog longs to return to the cushy conditions he had with Beth (Debra Messing) an animal-loving park ranger who rescued him and raised him as a pet from the time he was a cub. Desperate to please his new friend who spared him from an overzealous hunter (Gary Sinise) Elliot tries to help lead Boog back to the mountainside town but instead they are met with hostility by their fellow forest creatures including a combative squirrel McSquizzy (Billy Connelly) a perfectionist beaver Reilly (Jon Favreau) and a machismo-fuelled deer Ian (Patrick Warburton) who is Elliots nemesis. Now with hunting season upon them they must all align to defend themselves against the hunters that annually plague their domain. While obviously geared toward kids OPEN SEASON covers quite a few adult themes including the comparison of man and beast. By pitting animals against hunters the film operates from a pro-animal and pro-environment stance. It also conveys the importance of getting along with those different from ourselves and encourages teamwork and acceptance of others.
