I am a big Open Season fan, so when I found out that there was a sequel due to be released I jumped up and down with excitement.

The plot of the film is as follows:

It's one year later, and we find Elliot getting ready to marry the love of his life, Giselle. But the way to the altar takes a slight detour when Mr. Weenie is kidnapped. Boog, Elliot and all the gang take it upon themselves to rescue their German pooch from the clutches of his owners, 'Mud Flap and Wild Man'.

As the film was only released 2 years after the original, you know they haven't taken much time to perfect the story or animation. Sadly, they didn't bring back Ashton Kutcher or Martin Lawrence as Elliot and Boog. Which for me personally is a big let down. If you compare the story to the first film, it's instantly not as good. And if you compare the animation to other films which were released the same year, such as Walle and Bolt, it really is way behind.

For Pixar, it was Toy Story that made them big, so obviously it's going to be their most loved feature. Because of this they have worked on two sequels to the film. Dreamworks has Shrek, which is now on it's 4th episode and Madagascar which is on it's 2nd film. Twentieth Century Fox has Ice Age, which is on it's third feature and for Sony Animation, it has Open Season. Sadly though, it feels that Sony are releasing this film for a get rich quick scheme. If only they had worked a little harder this film could be brilliant.

Don't get me wrong though, I do like this film. Crispin Glover as Fifi is an inspired casting. He and Roberto (Steve Schirripa) provide most, if not all, of the laughs in the film.

Overall, an okay movie which the children will adore! What more do you need?

I adored Open Season. I thought it was clever and funny and would recommend it to others. So I was quite excited to find there was a sequel coming out. My excitement was dampened slightly when I discovered it was going straight to DVD (in the UK, at any rate). And yet further when I found out that Ashton Kutcher and Martin Lawrence were no longer voicing the main characters, Boog and Elliot. It didn't bode well. Still, I put my misgivings aside and sat down to watch Open Season 2.

It was a turkey right from the start I'm afraid. I'm usually a huge fan of animated films but this just didn't get me going. There didn't seem to be any chemistry going on and the characters just weren't the buzzy, crazy creatures of the first film. The plot was reasonable but not the hare-brained (pardon the pun) action seen in the previous movie. It was just flat - totally devoid of the enthusiasm the first outing was spilling over with. It did make me laugh, however. Just the once, mind. And that was right at the end when the characters completely murder The Carpenters' classic Close To You. Karen would be turning in her grave. Don't let Open Season 2 send you to yours early - give it a miss.

Words cannot express my disappointment for this movie.

Why?
I found the plot dumb founding and stupid, an insult to have the title of open season, when the first was fun for all the family.
The original legendary voices such as Martin Lawrence and Ashton Kutcher are no longer playing Boog and Elliot. This I am not surprised as they probably ran a mile after seeing the screen play.
What jokes there are, few in number, are ludicrously stupid.
So what other movies are there for you and your kids so you don't waste time with this or open season 3?
Kung Fu Panda
Over the Hedge
Shark Tale
Madagascar
A bugs life
Monsters Inc.
The Incredible's
Ratatouille
WALL-E
Finding Nemo
And my personal favourites Toy Story 1-3

Please take my advice and dont buy or download. 1* at most.

The Grand kids love any animated movie but I can assure you that this particular one was one of their best liked.

If you ever shop in Marks & Spencer and you walk by their TV's then this is the video that they are normally playing, we purchased it for the grandchildren to watch at our house and they love it, we do too!!!

Desperately poor followup to the very good original.

Extremely strung out dialogue, atrociously rendered animation, cheap even, non existent story. I cannot describe how bad this is.

In my opinion all the laughs were there, but the storyline wasn't as good as the first film.

Not one of the most famous cartoons out there compared to the likes of the Pixar films, but the kids loved it. Roared with laughter and as good as the first

I kind of vaguely remember watching the first Open Season film, but it wasn't the most memorable film I have ever seen. This is an attempt by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment to jump on the bandwagon of the success that Pixar and Dreamworks have had in producing computer animated kiddie films, which is so much cheaper and quicker than the old fashioned hand drawn method!

The trouble with the glut of computer generated kids movies is that most of them have really weak storylines. True, there are some real gems, like Shrek or Toy Story, but there are hundreds of instantly forgettable mass produced pieces of tat out there too.

The movie itself takes over where the first one left off. The first movie was about a domesticated bear who was released into the wild, made friends with a deer and had various "buddy" escapades fighting hunters (yawn). The second movie begins with Eliot the deer on his way to wed the love of his life, Gisele, full of fears about commitment. During the wedding, he sees his friend, Mr Weenie the sausage dog being "kidnapped" and decides to embark on a rescue mission. The eventuality is a face off between the wild animals and a group of domestic pets who are keen to return Mr Weenie to their ranks. The dogs are led by a psychotic poodle called Fifi, who has a deep hatred of wild animals (yes, the film really is as bad as it sounds).

I found the film banal. It tries very hard to appeal to adults as well as kids with "in jokes" for the adults, but it manages to fail on both counts. The target audience (the kids) will find it hard to understand the constant references to the "commitment issues" that the deer has, whilst the parents will just find the whole thing intensely irrtating. The makers of the film have tried too hard to create something zany and wacky, but it just doesn't work on any level. There is the odd moment in the film where something funny happens, but there is nothing that will make you laugh out loud, and these moments are few and far between.

The characters in the film are instantly forgettable. I guarantee you won't remember many of their names after you have watched the film. None of the characters are very appealing, apart from the bear, who was the focus of the first movie, and I think the producers would have done better focusing on him as a main character and furthering his story about returning to the wild.

There are no real big names voicing this production, apart from Billy Connolly, who plays a grumpy squirrel. The DVD is rated PG for mild language, innuendo and comic violence.

The DVD has some extra features, such as how to draw the characters, and a "who let the dogs out" music video. There are also five arcade games based on the character of Mr Weenie the dog.

This is a DVD you will watch once and then give to the local jumble sale. Not great.
