In Sony Pictures Animation's first feature film, the animated action adventure comedy Open Season, the odd are about to get even. Boog (Martin Lawrence), a domesticated grizzly bear with no survival skills, has his perfect world turned upside down when he meets Elliot (Ashton Kutcher) a scrawny, fast-talking mule deer. When Elliot convinces Boog to leave his cushy home in a park ranger's garage to try a taste of the great outdoors, things quickly spiral out of control. Relocated to the forest with open season only three days away, Boog and Elliot must acclimate in a hurry. They must join forces to unite the woodland creatures and take the forest back!

Synopsis

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-fueled deer, Ian (Patrick Warburton), who is Elliot's 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. The PG-rated film includes some mature references, including rude humor and mild violence, but overall offers entertainment?appropriate for the whole family. ?
