Reviews for Open Season 2 ( 2008 ) 1080p

Watchable..

By: adonis98-743-186503
Elliott incessantly parades proudly with his antlers, until unwise rock-jumping sees them crushed, and thus his new pride. Bride Giselle thinks Elliott has commitment anxiety when he rushes off to take the lead in the rescue of canine buddy Mr. Weenie, who is kidnapped by a poodle's gang of master-devoted pets determined to reconvert him. Open Season 2 is a fun and lighthearted sequel that has enough charisma and basically enough charm to make the film worth your time and even tho with it's fair share of problems it's still a pretty good sequel no doubt about it.

Franchise losing steam

By: SnoopyStyle
Elliott (Joel McHale) is getting married to Giselle (Jane Krakowski). His rack of antlers is broken once again. Dog Mr Weenie has escaped his owners to be wild. When his owners recapture him, Elliott decide to rescue him. The gang of wild animals must journey to the pet resort before Mr Weenie is completely brainwashed.

First off, they recast the voices. It's obvious that this is a franchise being downgraded. The animation hasn't changed. The level of danger is much lower. The stakes at risk seems much lower. It is full of bright colors but dull silly story. It's definitely a franchise lowering their expectations.

Hilarious Comedy With a Silly Plot

By: rannynm
Our furry friends awaken from hibernation just in time for Elliot and Giselle's spring wedding. But in the middle of the ceremony Elloit, voiced by John McHale, gets cold feet. He thinks Mr. Weenie, voiced by Cody Cameron, is being captured by an evil women, who in actuality is his former owner. Giselle suggest putting the wedding on hold to search for Mr. Weenie. Elliot and the rest of the forest gang agree. So they set out on a dangerous and exciting quest to find their friend. My favorite characters are Fifi voiced by Crispin Glover because even though he is small in size. He has a big "I'm in charge" attitude. I also like Giselle, voiced by Jan Krakowski, because she is pretty, graceful, smart and a great tracker. My favorite scene is when Giselle and McSquizzy disguise themselves as dogs to sneak into Pet Paradiso. That is brilliant! I rate this movie 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend this movie to kids of all ages. Because it is funny and it has a silly plot. Reviewed by Ny'Asia Bell, age 8, KIDS FIRST!

Rather bland if you ask me

By: TheLittleSongbird
I love animation, and while it had a few imperfections I did enjoy the first Open Season movie. But I personally didn't care for this sequel. It does have its good points, some of the animation is quite colourful and vibrant, the soundtrack is at least tolerable, the film starts off quite nicely and the voice acting is mostly good. Aside from that, Open Season 2 lacks the charm and fun the first did. While there is some nice-looking animation especially in the colours, there is the odd background that lacks finesse and some of the character designs looked blocky. The characters aren't as likable or as endearing, the story is predictable and rushed and while there are some humorous spots the writing lacks one vital ingredient, freshness. Also in regards to the latter point, most of the jokes are lame and miss the mark, some of them as well come so fast I had to re-wind the DVD(yes I rented it) numerous times to "get" them. All in all, it has its moments, but this sequel is rather bland and charmless to live up to an least watchable first film. 4/10 Bethany Cox

The original is a bit bland, but this sequel is less funny and more boring, with the same disappointing animation

By: Electrified_Voltage
"Open Season", a 2006 Sony Pictures Animation production, turned out to be one of the more polarizing computer animated efforts of the past decade, and knowing that before I finally saw it for the first time just several months ago, four years after it came out, I wasn't surprised when I found it to be a mixture of good and not so good. The quality certainly wasn't enough to make me feel the need to watch this first sequel, "Open Season 2", right away. If the original had been much weaker (or probably even just a little weaker) than it is, I doubt I would have bothered watching this 2008 sequel at all. However, I have now seen it, and unfortunately but unsurprisingly, it can't even match the quality of the somewhat bland original.

Boog the bear and Elliot the mule deer now live in the forest together with several other animal friends. The deer has grown new antlers and is about to get married to Giselle, but before the wedding, he is very upset when he accidentally breaks those antlers. At the wedding, Elliot finds that he isn't quite sure if he wants to marry Giselle anymore. Meanwhile, Mr. Weenie, a domestic dog who escaped into the wild, has found a trail of dog biscuits left by his owners, Bob and Bobbie, and can't resist the temptation to eat them, so he eats along the trail and inevitably gets caught by his owners, who take him away in their RV! When Elliot sees this, he tells the other animals at the wedding, so the ceremony is cut off, and the deer sets out with Boog, Giselle, and several other animals that live in this forest on a mission to rescue Mr. Weenie. While they are on this mission, the dog they're looking for finds himself back with a group of other tame dogs led by Fifi, a toy poodle who hates wild animals!

When I watched the original, it seemed to me that the backgrounds looked more primitive than those of any other CGI animated feature I had ever seen. Well, the backgrounds in this sequel are the same. So, the animation is one of the flaws in "Open Season 2", but it's certainly not the only one. I didn't find the first "Open Season" THAT funny, but I hardly watched any of the gags in this sequel without keeping a straight face. Elliot takes Boog's place as the main protagonist here, and his freak-outs and such are generally not funny. That's also the case with the antics of Bobbie, Mr. Weenie's over-affectionate owner (I can see why Mr. Weenie wouldn't want to live with her), and the other characters who are supposed to be funny. The occasional toilet humour also doesn't work, though that's not to say that toilet humour is never funny. I would say the plot of this first sequel is also a bit bland, and I definitely didn't find as much excitement in it as I did in the plot of its predecessor, even if I occasionally found some of it.

This was the first movie I watched after "Monster House", another CGI film which Sony Pictures Animation was also involved in the production of, and I have to say, that film is much better than both of the "Open Season" ones I've seen. "Surf's Up", another Sony Pictures film, the one which led me to watch "Open Season" last November, also far exceeds the 2006 anthropomorphic wildlife feature from the same company in quality. Even though "Monster House" and "Surf's Up" haven't spawned any sequels and "Open Season" has now spawned two, the other two CGI animated films I've mentioned are clearly more popular, which I can understand perfectly. "Open Season 3" has recently come out, but I'm certainly in no hurry to see it, and I'm sure NEVER seeing it wouldn't be a great loss, as it seems to be even less popular than this second installment. Even if you like the first film a lot more than I do, this first sequel could still be disappointing to you, which I guess is very often the case with sequels.

This is when you don't enjoy watching a sequel

By: buddybhupender
I don't want to spend too much time on this one simply because it doesn't deserve it. Well the movie has a weak storyline and all every twist felt like we knew that it'd happen. so story is a disappointment, which ultimately let down the whole movie watching experience. Compared to its first part movie fails to capture our attention though there are some moments of laughter all because of 'Eli the goose' but lack of twists and aimless story creates a dullness so totally trash it.. it is a let down on behalf of the first part. and it is painful when you admired the first one.

why watch it??

1- if you are great fan of the first part. 2- Good for kids.. who doesn't want to meet a bear like BOOG in their childhood. 3- If you love CGI animation. 4- Your friend is letting you borrow this title then it is OK to kill one hours time viewing it. 5- if you don't bother about the story at all.

Perhaps not as good as the original, but . . .

By: Meaghan Edwards
Still damn entertaining! There as a serious shortage of Boog to go around, but the addition of a poodle with a serious Napoleon complex, voiced by Crispin Glover, almost makes up for it. Fifi steals the spotlight; speaking as a groomer's assistant, do not underestimate the power of a small dog!

As some have pointed out, the animation isn't as smooth as the original, giving the movie a rather "rushed" feel to it. All the original animal characters are back, but with a different cast for the voice work.

The storyline in a nutshell; the gang is set out to rescue Weenie from the clutches of his owners, interrupting the marriage ceremony of Giselle and Elliot.

Not a perfect movie, but one that may still be able to give you some smiles and laughter.

The worst animation movie ever

By: mahmoudelkotb
This is by FAR the worst animation movie ever created by man. its also a horrible sequel to an OK movie. i think it is a Wayan brothers movie but with animation. all the stupid jokes about food, farts, sex, homosexuality and other mind numbingly stupid stuff. in fact you can see how bad this movie by watching just the first 5 min. this is the worst way you wan spend your time either if you are a child or an adult. technically, this movie doesn't have anything to keep you watching it till the end, you do not know exactly what you are supposed to do, who should you like and how you want this movie to end. and these are the basics for any animation movie that is aimed at children, youngsters and animation loving adults.

For the longest time, I've been a fan of the original Open Season movie, but this sequel kills it! One year after the first one, Elliot and Giselle are about to get married, but their wedding ceremony has been hold off when Mr. Weenie is capture by his owners and hold hostage by a group of dogs and cats. It's up to them to save Mr. Weenie before it's too late! This sequel doesn't stand up to the first movie that well. Story was too rushed, characters didn't act like their normal selves (most of them didn't) and the animation was okay, but the dialogue grew pretty bland.

Open Season is no Disney movie, but I think Sony Pictures could of try to do better if it wasn't in a hurry to be made. Lots of animated take time to be made, but sequels shouldn't if the fans want more. Parts in it were a little bit boring but not so much interesting. I thought I was watching more of a quick short than to be focusing on a one single movie. The time in it was too fast! I would suggest renting if you guys know what's best for you. Don't buy! You don't need to waste money on it even if you're a fan of the original like I am

Very disappointing

By: rjr_uk
I loved the first open season, for me its not just for kids, there was a sense of intelligence about the whole storyline, I found it funny and very easy to follow, Ashton kutcher being Elliot made it even better! There is just something about his voice that's funny. But after watching this, its like a totally different sort of film, the whole thing is all over the place with scenes cutting in quickly, different sorts of music accompanying the script, its just makes it so hard to follow, a complete mess in my opinion. There was nothing intelligent about this film at all and yes maybe a kid may enjoy the colour and the silliness but its a complete let down from my prospective. The actual script itself is just so silly and makes no sense, the one other major huge let down is that Ashton Kutcher is no where to be heard, the character Elliot is no longer funny, the voice is just a bit flaccid and has no edge or likability factor. One other thing I must mention is also the animation quality seems to have suffered as well, there is just something off about the scenes where it doesn't seem no where near enjoyable visually then the first one.

My advice would be if you enjoyed for the first one like I did then don't bother watching this and just keep the memory of the original.

nothing for children or adults

By: eagleroost
With Open Season 1 being so original and full of laughs, this sequel is such a sad disappointment. We laughed ten times during the 60 second preview scenes from Open Season 1 and maybe three times in all of #2. The plot is a very trite adult theme of fear of commitment before getting married. Kids don't care about this theme and adults have seen it a million times. Blah, blah, boring. Lets see, a but* crack joke- so funny, never seen it before. What passes for humor in the other plot line is some sort of play on military torture- is this funny for anyone- especially kids? There was a creative pet paradise setting-umm that's it. What a wasted evening.

Most disappointing sequel of my entire life!

Excellent! Huge fun!!!

By: Luka Boshkovic
Well, I can't say that the story is something to talk about, but the characters are INCREDIBLE, every single one of them is unique, funny, and fits perfectly in the movie. If you didn't like Open Season 1 and you find that a reason not to watch Open Season 2, think again! From hundreds of reasons it is worth of a watch even only to see a cat named Roger, I think that is the most original and the funniest animated character I ever saw in a cartoon! I cant really remember the name of that cat breed that it represents, but in moment I saw the cat I knew what were they trying to say. Every animal in the movie is represented just like it's appearance speaks, but much more deeply and originally.

Rent don't buy

I'm an animator myself... so thereby an animation geek. I really liked the first open season movie. Didn't love it.... but liked it. When I saw it again a couple of weeks ago I thought it didn't feel as good as it did the first time. The story isn't just good enough to watch more then once... maybe twice. But I absolutely loved the look and design of the film. So when Open Season 2 was lying in the shelfs at the local DVD store I bought it right away. Hoping it would be as good or hopefully better then the first one. Just a nice animated film with some humor. I expected nothing more nothing less. But Open season 2 is a real let down. All I can say is that it feels like the just didn't rewrite the script. Stuck with all there first ideas and just rushed it out the door. Even the animation doesn't feel as solid as the first movie. It had some funny moments and some really nice characters. But it wasn't worth the money I paid for it. Maybe kids will love this... but as an adult... just don't expect to see a movie that will have the extra layer so you to can enjoy it as much as your kid would. Still... Boog the bear... for me is one of the best designs of a bear ever.
