1.5 stars out of 5 (terrible)
Boog (Martin Lawrence) is a bear who lives the city life. He’s a metro-grizzly. His life is usually completely perfect. He’s got a beautiful owner named Beth, who is voiced by Debra Messing and is a forest ranger, a garage home that would fit 10 animals, and an acting job.
But his life suddenly shatters when he meets Elliot, (Ashton Kutcher) a one-antlered deer who’s lashed to a truck. After Boog saves Elliot, the deer thinks that “Hey, we’re buddies,” so later he gets Boog’s attention by throwing bunnies at the window of the garage.
After he lets him in, Boog proclaims he’s not a pet, but Elliot holds up a bowl with his name written on it and says, “Righhttt.”
So what’s the point? There IS NO POINT to this story! It’s just a bunch of skits like you would see on the Amanda Show put into one big flick!
The movie is called Open Season because in the forest it’s time for open season to begin, and the animals don’t want to get killed. Boog is set free at that time with Elliot. For those of you who have seen the Spongebob Squarepants movie, they go into a candy store and get drunk on sugar like Spongebob and Patrick on ice cream, which is bad for Boog because then he acts crazy.
Then there’s this one funny scene when Elliot says “Half doe, half buck, I’m a duck!” It’s also hilarious that Boog can’t do “his business” (don’t tell you kids what that means) without his facilities-you know-the toilet!
In conclusion, this movie may amuse younger kids, younger than 5, but if they ask what the point was tell them, there was no point!
I laughed anyway.
Rated PG for some crude humor and brief language, which also stands for Pointless Goofiness.
