Chicago Tribune
Martin Lawrence and Ashton Kutcher may seem like an odd-sounding comedy team, but in some weird way, they click as voice-actors and cartoon buddies in Open Season.

The Hollywood Reporter
Despite that nagging whiff of familiarity, there are enough character quirks and inspired bits of funny business to carry this amiable if slight tale.

Variety
A witty, warmly crafted chestnut.
60
With a slick visual style similar to "Monster House", Open Season trots out tropes that recent animated classics have done with more wit and smarts.
60
An amusing if slight excursion into nature with a group of animals who turn the tables on their collective nemeses, the hunters.

Entertainment Weekly
The overfamiliar Open Season feels like just another CG 'toon in our 'toon-glutted times.

L.A. Weekly
On the plus side, Open Season enjoys a clear narrative, real rooting interest and good interspecies rapport. On the downside, there’s a surfeit of cruel bunny-rabbit gags.
50
Periodic bursts of cleverness and eye-popping imagery, further enhanced in the 3-D Imax version, can't disguise that this is just another movie full of jive-talking computer-generated animals with little new to say.
30
Little more than paint-by-numbers filmmaking, and it fails in the most important charge of any children's movie: to transport its young and impressionable audience to a world where anything is possible, rather than to one where everything’s been thought of already.
25
It's a tired rehash of animation cliches that distinguishes itself only by the extent to which it's crammed full of scatology and gleeful violence to animals, and otherwise panders to the worst instincts of its audience.
