Storyline

A happily domesticated grizzly bear named Boog, has his perfect world turned upside down after he meets Elliot, a scrawny, fast-talking one-horned wild mule deer. They both end up stranded together in the woods during hunting season and it's up to the duo to rally all the other forest animals and turn the tables on the hunters.

Trivia

Boog's fur is comprised of over 1.6 million hairs. Surprisingly, Elliott has more - 3.5 million. As his fur is shorter, more hair was required to cover him. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie Beth loads a large blue cooler and a smaller red one into the back of her jeep. They are nowhere to be seen when Boog jumps into the back a few minutes later. See more »

Who'd have thunk?
2 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Matin Lawrence and Ashton Kutcher rock as the big bear "Boog" and the comic sidekick deer "Elliot". Unfortunately, the story was bland and the jokes were only mildly funny, so it will not be one of the best kids movies you're going to see this year. The "Laugh out loud" index was maybe a 5-10 (laughs per movie). "Over the Hedge" was closer to 20-30 for comparative purposes. "Boog" and "Elliot" were well played. The Scottish squirrels, Beavers and Rabbits were funny, but the rest of the characters didn't make much of an impression. Although somewhat entertaining, it was quickly forgotten after we left the theater (with the exception of the Austin Powers like shadow scene behind the curtain). If you need to take the kids out to a movie, this is funny enough to make it worthwhile, but don't get your expectations up to high.
