Unfortunately, a group of alley cats led by Tom, crash Jerry’s party, kidnap the music box ballerina, and wreak havoc in the holiday kingdom. It’s up to Jerry to set things right and send those mean old cats back to the alley where they belong. With some help from a mouse named Tuffy and all his newfound friends… Jerry just might win the day!

Open Season (Widescreen Special Edition)

In Open Season, the odd are about to get even. Boog (Martin Lawrence), a domesticated grizzly bear with no survival skills, has his perfect world turned upside down when he meets Elliot (Ashton Kutcher) a scrawny, fast-talking mule deer. When Elliot convinces Boog to leave his cushy home in a park ranger’s garage to try a taste of the great outdoors, things quickly spiral out of control. Relocated to the forest with open season only three days away, Boog and Elliot must acclimate in a hurry. They must join forces to unite the woodland creatures and take the forest back.
Growing up can be a confusing journey fraught with difficult choices. Boog (Martin Lawrence) is a domesticated Grizzly Bear who leads a perfectly happy life inside of Park Ranger Beth’s (Debra Messing) garage, but a chance meeting with an overly energetic mule deer named Elliot (Ashton Kutcher) quickly changes everything and lands Boog high in the forest a few days before the opening of hunting season.

    This is absolutely the best animated feature I have ever seen and I love these things! Martin Lawrence is brilliant as the voice of Boog the Grizzly Bear. He deserves an Oscar for his touching, hilarious vocalizations. And Ashton Kutcher will blow you away as Elliott the buck with one antler. Wait until you hear Gary Sinise as the evil hunter. Incredibly funny. Other performances include Debra Messing as the park ranger who adopted Boog and Patrick Warburton (Puddy from Seinfeld) as the lead buck in the deer herd. Buy it, you will watch it again and again. Super musical soundtrack is also a must have. Highly recommended!

  2. Review by Chad Biggerstaff for Open Season (Widescreen Special Edition)
    I’ve had my Xbox HD-DVD player for 6 months and love it – hooked on HD movies. I was frustrated at not being able to get all the High Def movies available so I broke down and got the 100 dollar discounted PS3 as soon as the price break hit. For my first Blu-ray movie I selected Open Season, hoping I had made a good choice and felt comforted by the quality reviews I read on here (Amazon).

    Sure enough the reviews were true the picture is amazing in 1080P High Def. The movie was more entertaining than I expected. With the quality of the picture and the decent animation story you certainly won’t regret your purchase. I wasn’t blown away by the uncompressed audio, but it also didn’t disappoint – just didn’t really stand out where as the picture certainly did.

    I dunno if it’s because this is an animated movie, but I can say that this is the best quality High Def content I’ve seen to date, better picture than the HD-DVD movies I’ve seen.

  3. Review by Ron for Open Season (Widescreen Special Edition)
    This is a fairly safe film that the whole family can enjoy. A little bathroom humor, a beaver saying “dam”, and a fairly intense hunter are the only questionable parts of the movie. The movie involves a bear named Boog who has been taken in by a park ranger and lives in her garage like a pet. Everything is fine until he rescues a deer named Elliot who becomes his friend whether he wants it or not. Elliot gets Boog kicked out into the wild, where the movie follows the familar fish out of water plot as Boog tries to find his way into the wild. It ends with Boog leading the animals of the forest against the hunters during open season to save all of his new friends. The animation is nice, and the voice work is pretty strong. This is not quite a Pixar quality film, but it is not a cheapo movie. I think this is a good one to see with the kids.

  4. Review by R. Kyle for Open Season (Widescreen Special Edition)
    “Open Season” is the coming-of-age story of a very unlikely friendship. Boog (Voice by Martin Lawrence), the Bear, has lived a very sheltered life in the garage of Beth, the game ranger who rescued him. Elliott (voice by Ashton Kutcher), the mule deer, has had a very bad day. He’s just gotten expelled from his pack by the Alpha Buck, gotten hit by a truck, lost an antler and ended up strapped to the hood of an insane hunter’s truck.

    When Boog saves Elliott’s life, Elliott comes to join him in his garage haven–and they end up on a night on the town that gets Boog sent to the wilderness earlier than his game-ranger Mom would have preferred–and sadly, at the beginning of “Open Season.”

    To stay safe, the two must band together–and along the way, they learn a lot about friendship and teamwork. This is a great lesson film for kids as well as having some wonderful moments for adults, too.

    Plus, the making of videos are fascinating. Viewers have the chance to learn about how animation is drawn and how the directors help bring the voices to life.

  5. Review by Nicole Raymond for Tom and Jerry: A Nutcracker Tale
    This movie is great! My 4 year old saw it once on TV and loved it! I came to Amazon to find it, since it was hard to find being not one of the most popular movie/cartoon titles that are out these days. It is definitely an enjoyable classic and well worth the money!!

  6. Review by Malynda Perez for Tom and Jerry: A Nutcracker Tale
    This is a really cute, wonderfully animated holiday DVD to help kids appreciate the Nutcracker. Tom and Jerry, two staples of cartoon characters make this a wonderfully funny dvd for the whole family to watch. I would recommend this for any family to watch.
