Kate and Humphrey are back. They are getting ready to celebrate Christmas with their pups, but when the youngest pup, Runt disappears without a trace, they must spend the Holidays protecting their family and getting Runt back.
After receiving word about The Great Games, Stinky, Claudette, and Runt decide to form a team to compete as well. However, Kate is out of town, so Humphrey becomes their coach. Will the Western team succeed, or fail?
Forced to relocate their den, Kate, Humphrey, and the pups befriend Amy, a dinosaur, who needs to stop a digging before a T-Rex's spirit emerges, just like hers did. Now, they will have to work together before it's too late.
In Jasper National Park, the wolves, Kate and Humphrey, have known each other since puppyhood, but they are on the oppose ends of the Western Pack's social structure with Kate as the energetic Alpha daughter of the pack leader and Humphrey being the good humoured Omega. That social structure forces Kate to accept an arranged marriage with Garth of the Eastern Pack to unite the packs for peace, regardless of Humphrey's hopeless attraction for her. Before that union can occur, Kate and Humphrey are captured by the park's rangers and sent to an Idaho park as part of a wolf repopulation project. Mindful of her duties, Kate is determined to return to Jasper and Humphrey offers to help with the assistance of two odd geese. However, as this disparate pair struggle through the dangers to get home, a growing mutual appreciation of their talents and then a deeper love threatens to disastrously complicate everything if they make it back.

When Marcel was dragging Humphrey through the air, he flies in such a manner to make Humphrey impact a tree branch with his stomach, causing him to let go and leaving him hanging from the tree by his front paws. In the next shot of Humphrey, he has all four paws on the tree branch and is able to leap after Marcel. See more »
What's wrong with you?
[Humphrey has his paws between his legs]
I have to go.
Can't you hold it?
No! I can't.

Alpha and Omega is a competent baby-sitter but doesn't have quite the chops to be as absorbing for adults as well, as Pixar movies do. The movie is a standard fare love story and standard fare animal animation somewhat encased in a male bashing advertisement's philosophy. Humphrey is the idiotic male whose carelessness actually is a major plot point in the story while Kate is a mature, responsible, competent hunter, pretty, yada yada and so on.
The quality of the movie is top notch, and has a beautiful 3D that creates makes the scenes look much better and vibrant, though darker like using sunglasses using the 3d glasses. The movie is reminiscent of a lot of animal movies that happen in jungles that partially cross paths with humans. The golfer geese are funny and the bears, caribou all provide a lively background for the story to unfold.
Great movie to go with your daughter if you can bear the kid directed non-Pixar movies.
