Open Season ★★½ 2006 (PG)

Harmless animated flick about the plight of animals vs. man. Boog (Lawrence) is a grizzly bear, raised in captivity, who's released into the woods a few days before the opening of hunting season. He relies on the help of his friend Elliot (Kutcher), a spastic mule deer, to find his way to safety, which means returning to human civilization since Boog really doesn't like this life-in-the-wild stuff. Abounds with standard bathroom humor, with sprinkles of wit for the grown-ups. 99m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc . USD: Roger Allers, Jill Culton; W: Steve Bencich, Maurizio Merli, Nat Maudlin; M: Paul Westerberg, Ramin Djawadi; V: Martin Lawrence, Ashton Kutcher, Gary Sinise, Debra Messing, Billy Connolly, Jon Favreau, Georgia Engel, Jane Krakowski, Gordon Tootoosis, Patrick Warburton.
