Nachdem er sich Hals über Huf in Giselle verliebt hat, muss Elliot auf seinem Weg zum Traualtar noch einen kleinen Umweg einlegen, als Mr. Weenie von einer Bande verwöhnter Schoßhunde entführt wird, die ihn unbedingt zu seinem einstigen Besitzer zurückbringen wollen. Boog, Elliot, McSquizzy, Buddy und die übrigen Waldtiere starten eine groß angelegte Befreiungssaktion, um ihren wurstförmigen Freund zu retten und finden sich bald selbst im Feindeslager wieder: in der Welt der Haustiere. Angeführt vom Pudel Fifi wollen die Stubenhocker Mr. Weenie nicht kampflos ziehen lassen. Kann ein kleiner Pudel WIRKLICH etwas gegen einen 900 Pfund schweren Grizzly ausrichten? Wird Elliot Giselle je heiraten?

Bei CS! gibt es eine Kritik (8/10)...
[...] "Open Season" is Sony Pictures Animaton's first film and they really started it off on the right foot. It was great fun for both my kids and I. First off, the movie has a twisted sense of humor. [...]
The animation in "Open Season" is also excellent. The characters are quite cartoonish, but the hair is realistic looking and the movements are fantastic. The body language adds a lot to the performances of the characters. [...]
The only time "Open Season" really drags are in the obligatory slow, weepy moments of the film where sad songs play. Unfortunately this happens several times. It seems like every animated film must have moments like these and they aren't really necessary. [...]
If you're a fan of "Shrek" or the Pixar movies, I think you'll find "Open Season" worth giving a shot. As an adult I enjoyed it and kids will most definitely enjoy it. My kids are still quoting the catch phrase of the porcupine - "Buddy!"

MovieWeb berichtet über die Comic-Con 2006...
[...] The film stars Martin Lawrence as a lovable bear named Boog, and Ashton Kutcher as a high strung mule deer.
The pair find each other in the most unusual of circumstances, but must stick together once they get lost in the forest. Oh, and did I mention they're also being hunted by a mullet-bearing lunatic, voiced by Gary Sinise.
And speaking of the mullet, we were on the panel for Sony Pictures Animation and Doug Ikeler, the visual effects supervisor for the film said, "This is the first time someone's ever had to create a mullet in an animated movie." And most likely, he's probably right.
The panel consisted of Doug, along with the director, Jill Culton and the creator of the comic strip that the film is based on, Steve Moore. We were first shown the trailer for Open Season and the three walked up right after. The trailer was ok; of course, the animation was spectacular! But now a days, if it isn't you've got a serious problem. I really couldn't tell what the plot of the movie was from the trailer. But, it was funny and there were some decent one-liners thrown in there.
Jill started off by talking about living up near San Francisco in the woods and at first didn't really want to come down to Los Angeles to start working on the film. But she said, "After page 5, I knew I was going to move to LA; this was my story."
That comic strip it's based on is called In the Bleachers; Steve actually spoke a little on creating the characters and got up and drew Elliot on a pad. He started out with the nose, then the eyes, and then the body - he joked that he did all the animation himself for the movie; obviously, he didn't, but his drawing of Elliot looked pretty darn good.
We were then treated to another sequence from the film, that was just completed two weeks ago. The scene had the reunion of Elliot and Boog - they had met once before, and Boog thought he would never have to see Elliot again. He was wrong in a big way; Boog had never stepped outside, living in the garage of a house.
Elliot forces Boog to travel outside his normal elements; their first stop - the PuniMart, a 7-11 type joint. That's where the temptation of the outside world takes over for the two; they destroy the store, and must flee the neighborhood and try and survive in the woods. Once again, the animation kicks ass! There was great attention to detail on both characters and their other surroundings.
Doug Ikeler then stood up and gave about a 10-minute presentation on what went into the process of the animation. When Gary Sinise comes into play, there's a chase sequence through the rapid waters. Doug said, "We wanted to make it like a San Francisco car chasse on water." It definitely felt like that, equipped with an 'in-camera' log shot.
Overall, I was very impressed with Open Season; I think the humor will definitely come through as kids and adults will enjoy it. [...]

In Columbia Pictures' new action-adventure comedy Open Season, the first feature-length animated motion picture from Sony Pictures Animation, Boog (Martin Lawrence), a grizzly bear with no survival skills, has his perfect world in the tranquil town of Timberline turned upside-down when he meets Elliot (Ashton Kutcher), a scrawny, fast-talking wild mule deer. Elliot arrives in Timberline, missing an antler, and strapped to the hood of a truck, courtesy of the paranoid uber hunter Shaw (Gary Sinise). Against his better judgment, Boog frees Elliot. Elliot attempts to return the favor by "freeing" Boog from his idyllic existence with his beloved Park Ranger Beth (Debra Messing), who raised him since he was a cub. Things quickly spiral out of control. The two troublemakers are relocated together to the wild...just three days before open season! With hunting season upon them and Shaw in hot pursuit, Boog and Elliot must learn to work together and unite the woodland creatures. In a rowdy, madcap battle, they make the woods safe once and for all by turning the hunters into the hunted.

Der "Open Season" Teaser-Trailer ist online...
Sony Pictures Animation, a division of Sony Pictures Digital, is set to begin production on its first feature length CGI motion picture, Open Season. The announcement was made today by Yair Landau, Vice-Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and president of Sony Pictures Digital.
Open Season will feature the vocal talents of Martin Lawrence, Ashton Kutcher and Debra Messing. In a classic, mismatched comedic pairing, Open Season tells the story of a 900 pound domesticated Grizzly bear named Boog (Lawrence) and a scrawny, one-horned mule deer named Elliot (Kutcher), stranded together in the woods during hunting season. Boog and Elliot must work together to rally the animals of the forest and turn the tables on the hunters. Messing will voice the character of Beth, a forest ranger who rescued Boog as a cub and raised him. Open Season is inspired by the humor of syndicated cartoonist Steve Moore (In the Bleachers). Moore will serve as executive producer along with John Carls.
Sony Pictures Animation was established in May, 2002, and is led by Executive Vice Presidents Sandra Rabins and Penney Finkelman Cox. Open Season will be the division's first release, scheduled for Spring 2006.
"Penney and Sandy have assembled a team of outstanding, innovative filmmakers," said Landau. "Open Season is just the first in a slate of technologically and artistically compelling features from Sony Pictures Animation."
"In casting the characters of Boog, Elliot and Beth, we knew we had to find actors with great comedic timing," said Rabins and Finkelman Cox. "Boog is a domesticated bear who has the town wired and Elliot is a fast-talking misfit. In Martin and Ashton, we've found a comedic duo who will truly bring to life the personalities of Boog and Elliot. Debra will bring to the character of Beth such heart and warmth, at the same time providing her own unique wit and humor."
Open Season is directed by Jill Culton, with Anthony Stacchi serving as co-Director. Culton was credited with the original story for Monsters, Inc, where she served as both Head of Story Development and as Conceptual Artist; she was on the story team for Toy Story 2, where she is credited with designing the character of Jessie. Culton's other credits include A Bug's Life (Storyboard Artist), Cats Don't Dance (Directing Animator), and Toy Story (Story). Stacchi most recently was part of the development team on Curious George. Other credits include Antz (Story artist) and James and the Giant Peach (visual effects).
The digital animation will be provided by Sony Pictures Imageworks, currently in production on the highly anticipated CGI adaptation of the beloved children's book, The Polar Express, with Robert Zemeckis; and Spider-Man 2, the sequel to the 2002 blockbuster film Spider-Man. Imageworks produced last year's Academy Award®-winning animated short film, The ChubbChubbs. [...]
