More Info:
  • Michael Wilmington

    Martin Lawrence and Ashton Kutcher may seem like an odd-sounding comedy team, but in some weird way, they click as voice-actors and cartoon buddies in Open Season.

  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Given that so many people have dismissed Ashton Kutcher as a superficial pretty boy, it seems a little ironic that his best work this week is two-dimensional: He makes a passable action hero in "The Guardian," but he's downright adorable in Open Season, a cheerful animated comedy built on his winningly loose voice performance.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Angel Cohn

    Though silly and predictable, this animated comedy has stunning visuals, a catchy soundtrack and charming characters that are family-friendly crowd-pleasers.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Despite that nagging whiff of familiarity, there are enough character quirks and inspired bits of funny business to carry this amiable if slight tale.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    A witty, warmly crafted chestnut.

    Variety Full Review
  • Mark Medley

    The film wraps mindless cartoon violence and a few fart jokes around life lessons about friendship and responsibility. Kids should like it; parents won't mind it.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Kevin Crust

    An amusing if slight excursion into nature with a group of animals who turn the tables on their collective nemeses, the hunters.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    With a slick visual style similar to "Monster House", Open Season trots out tropes that recent animated classics have done with more wit and smarts.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Gregory Kirshling

    The overfamiliar Open Season feels like just another CG 'toon in our 'toon-glutted times.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Janice Page

    As cartoon rip-offs go, Open Season can be surprisingly entertaining, in a made-for-6-year-olds kind of way.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Gregg Rickman

    On the plus side, Open Season enjoys a clear narrative, real rooting interest and good interspecies rapport. On the downside, there’s a surfeit of cruel bunny-rabbit gags.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Laura Kern

    Periodic bursts of cleverness and eye-popping imagery, further enhanced in the 3-D Imax version, can't disguise that this is just another movie full of jive-talking computer-generated animals with little new to say.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    For an inaugural effort, Open Season ain't bad, but the studio shows far more promise with its gee-whiz visuals than it does in the story department.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    No one makes it out of this laughless mess unscathed.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Josh Rosenblatt

    Little more than paint-by-numbers filmmaking, and it fails in the most important charge of any children's movie: to transport its young and impressionable audience to a world where anything is possible, rather than to one where everything’s been thought of already.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    An excellent case for euthanizing the entire talking-animals genre.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    This is the animated children's film equivalent of "Another 48 Hours."

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • William Arnold

    It's a tired rehash of animation cliches that distinguishes itself only by the extent to which it's crammed full of scatology and gleeful violence to animals, and otherwise panders to the worst instincts of its audience.
