OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 103 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: THEY LOVED "OPEN SEASON!
TEENS:The few teen females gave high reviews to "Open Season."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The half dozen females of this age rated it "Very Good," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. This is quite good considering "Open Season" is an animated kids movie.
ADULTS:All the adults, both male and female, enjoyed "Open Season" very much and no one rated it low. While these are not fantastic opinions, they're certainly high for an animated kids movie and easily high enough to recommend "Open Season" as A GREAT FAMILY MOVIE.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Boog (Martin Lawrence) is living the perfect life. In the tranquil town of Timberline, the genial grizzly bear enjoys all manner of creature comforts, courtesy of his surrogate mother, Beth (Debra Messing), the kindhearted forest ranger who rescued him as a cub. Boog relishes the perks of fame as the star of Beth's nature shows in the town's amphitheatre; and in Beth's converted garage, Boog watches his favorite tv shows, eats eight square meals a day and nestles in a comfy bed each night with his teddy bear, Dinkelman. Yes, Boog seems to have the perfect life — until Elliot appears.

Elliot (Ashton Kutcher) is a scrawny, fast-talking mule deer who arrives in town unconscious, missing an antler and strapped to the hood of a truck belonging to fanatical hunter Shaw (Gary Sinise). When Elliot awakes, he begs Boog to untie him. Boog finds Elliot's rapid fire pleas hard to ignore, and he releases the hapless mule deer. However, as if to prove that no good deed goes unpunished — Elliot tracks Boog down to his home and lures him out for a crazy night on the town—a bender which results in both of them being relocated to the forest.

Boog awakens in the wilderness, panicked to find himself far from the comforts of home. When Elliot promises to help Boog find his way back to Timberline in exchange for space in Boog's cushy digs, the bewildered bear with no survival skills has no choice but to agree to the unlikely partnership. With open season upon them, Boog and Elliot must first work together merely to survive. The odd couple embarks on a hilarious journey, enlisting the aid of some helping hands— er, paws—along the way as they join forces with the denizens of the forest to turn the tables on the hunters, and once again make the forest safe for its four-legged inhabitants.
