Boog, a domesticated 900lb. Grizzly bear, finds himself stranded in the woods 3 days before Open Season. Forced to rely on Elliot, a fast-talking mule deer, 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.
A scheming raccoon fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food, by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating...and learns a lesson about family himself.
Barry B. Benson, a bee just graduated from college, is disillusioned at his lone career choice: making honey. On a special trip outside the hive, Barry's life is saved by Vanessa, a florist in New York City. As their relationship blossoms, he discovers humans actually eat honey, and subsequently decides to sue them.
Simon J. Smith,
This story follows a teenage rock hopper penguin named Cody Maverick from his hometown of Shiverpool, Antarctica, where all of the other penguins think he's nothing but a surfing fool, to the "Big Z Memorial Surf Off" on Pen Gu Island. Young Cody is determined to win the most important competition in the world of penguin surfing in honor of "Big Z," a deceased surfing legend whom he has idolized since childhood. But the waves in Pen Gu are different than in Shiverpool, and the competition is steep. The current champ, egotistical Tank Evans, isn't just about to let this little penguin knock him from first place without a fight. When Cody wipes out and encounters Geek, a recluse aging former surfer, living in the jungle, he learns some important lessons about life and surfing, and even teaches Geek a thing or two. Written by

There are less than 900 shots in the movie - a relatively small amount for a big-budgeted animated film. See more »

As an old surfer, and a lover of penguins, I was totally PUMPED for
this movie! So I went out to see it last night, and I laughed several
times. One of the most awesome things to me, was how Big Z encompassed
the ideal of just having fun and letting everything go while you surf.
You've got to watch it to see that, but really, this movie is
spectacular. The animation is great, the characters develop nicely, and
the "documentary" format adds to the humor aspect of it.
I don't know about the comparisons to Happy Feet, but it seems rather
weird to get all upset because there's another penguin movie out on the
market. Bottom line, for me, is that this movie was very fun to watch,
and I thought it had some classic bits of humor. It may be a bit too
much for some younger kids, but it was great for me. I loved this
