Rotten: While the filmmakers here have provided us with a passable tale that is mildly humorous, Open Season breaks no new ground, from neither the animation nor the storytelling.
- Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times, Friday, September 29, 2006
Fresh: A little bit like Over the Hedge, and a lot like the upcoming Flushed Away, in which an animated house mouse is forced to fend for himself in the sewers of London, Open Season may sound a bit familiar, but it is never dull.
- Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News, Friday, September 29, 2006
Fresh: This debut offering from Sony Pictures Animation has a giddy energy about it and a gleeful sense of its own weirdness.

This is good for one reason only, the look and style. There seems to be a Tex Avery thing going on in there, based on those classic Warner cartoons with Wil E Coyote, Bugs, Daffy etc...it looks lovely and very different from other efforts. Thats it though, the characters are annoying, especially the squirrels and the voice cast are poor, could have been so much better.

I wish it was Open Season on whoever made this pile of crap. Honestly the mere sound of Ashton Kutcher's voice sends me into a blind, berserker rage so my opinion may be a tad skewed here. I started Open Season truly hating it. The characters were annoying, the cast was awful and Gary Sinise was playing Ted Nugent. (Nice jab at that waste of life, by the way...) The Paul Westerberg soundtrack (I know the man has children so I'm not going to begrudge the man's reasons for making the music for the movie as they're probably the same reasons I watched it) and a few legitimately funny parts thawed me out eventually. Open Season isn't particularly good but you can always say its better than Twilight.
