Once there was a magical elf who lived in a rainbow tree....

he lived downstairs from a flatlulent dwarf
who was constantly having to pee
one day the elf could take no more´╗┐
and he went and banged on the rude dwarfs door
and what do you know they suddenly both were married.....

Well, if that doesn't turn you off or make you more curious, then you really didn't read it.  This is a funny line that is in the movie...well, really, line isn't right, but rather a funny song that was in the movie.

If you haven't heard of Open Season or know nothing about it, give me a couple of minutes to help you understand a bit about the movie.

This is an animated movie made by Sony Animations.  You have a bear that lives a cushy life (in the garage of a park ranger) and isn't really able to help himself or live in nature the way a bear should.  His cushy life is changed dramatically when a deer bounds into his life and tries telling him he needs to live in nature and be himself, enjoy all that nature can offer.

Things go south at the park ranger's house due to the deer and suddenly, they both (the deer and the bear) are transported into wilderness and have to fend for themselves.  It starts out with a rough relationship (you ruined my life) to a budding friendship with all of the benefits of working together.

Ultimately, it ends up being quite a funny movie with the hunters out in the wilderness trying to hunt for open season and the animals being teamed up to protect themselves from being hunted.  The movie is quite cute and there is a few chuckle about some of the happenings.

If you haven't seen it, it should be one to check out once with the kids, as they find it extremely funny the crazy things that the animals do against the humans coming into their homes.  The title and the beginning lines of this were a song in the movie and my daughter (and husband for that matter) kept wanting me to hit replay on the dvd and we had to listen to it a few times.  Both were rolling on the floor laughing and just singing up a storm.  What a cute little bonding time for a family movie night.

This was pretty routine for me but hey, I had fun with it. The one I really didn't like was MADAGASCAR. Thanks for the review!

A Successful Formula & an Enjoyable Experience
   Back in 2006 when Sony Animation released Open Season, the formula of talking animal animated features was pretty sure-fire.  Blue Sky was basking in the revenue the Ice Ages were bringing in, DreamWorks had Madagascar (and perhaps even more direct competition Over the Hedge) and even Disney wanted a piece of the pie with The Wild.  Sony had a pretty admirable basis with Open Season, however, one that kept it from being lumped with the others in the ideal that a domesticated …

 It was a Saturday night, there was about 30 inches of snow outside, it was cold, and I was bored. So, searching for something to do, I discovered two of my roommates about to start watching the animated adventure Open Season. I had nothing to lose, so I joined them. Unfortunately, viewing the movie ultimately only confirmed my reasons for avoiding seeing films of a similar nature in the past.               For the last …

This movie is loads of fun. We purchased this movie and watched it with our kids. We were all laughing the whole time. This is one of the best kid's movies of all time. I laughed so long that my face was sore. Kids and adults both can appreciate this movie. If your kids haven't seen it yet I am sure they would love it for Christmas.

Another kiddy cartoon   About animals gone wild   But this time it's a grizzly bear   To entertain your child     Beth found Boog when he was young   And raised him as her own   He spends his days in her garage   Now that he's fully grown     One day he meets a stubborn deer   Who's like "Donkey" from Shrek   He's tied across a truck bonnet   Until Boog saves his neck …

`Open Season' does more than provide some oddball critters from "the wild". With some spirited mischief and a fun-filled adventure, the film should be in sight for every family. We are introduced to Boog (Martin Lawrence), a huge grizzly bear, whose domestication makes him spoiled for handouts. Besides being a well-fed pet, his forest ranger owner, Beth (Debra Messing) keeps him young and harmless with her tender loving care. His world changes when he meets another misfit animal, Elliot (Ashton …
