Boog is forced to rely on Elliot, a fast-talking mule deer, and the two form an unlikely friendship and must quickly rally other forest animals if they are to form a rag-tag army against the hunters.

Open Season follows the fortunes of two forest-animal misfits. Boog is a gentle and domesticated bear; Elliot is an absentminded and accident-prone deer who has been shunned by his herd.

Together, they struggle to adapt to the ways of life in the wild and on their own. Boog longs to return to the cushy conditions he had with Beth, an animal-loving park ranger who rescued him and raised him as a pet from the time he was a cub.

Desperate to please his new friend, who spared him from an overzealous hunter, Elliot tries to help lead Boog back to the mountainside town, but instead they are met with hostility by their fellow forest creatures.

The creatures include a combative squirrel, McSquizzy; a perfectionist beaver, Reilly; and a machismo-fueled deer, Ian, who is Elliot's nemesis.

Now, with hunting season upon them, they must all align to defend themselves against the hunters that annually plague their domain.

This movie is rated PG for some mature references, including rude humor and mild violence, but overall offers entertainment appropriate for the whole family.
