An animated action-adventure comedy OPEN SEASON is Sony Pictures first feature-length venture and stars Boog (Martin Lawrence), as an ex-circus bear who is a happily domesticated grizzly living an idyllic existence in the tranquil mountain town of Timberline. He spends his days as the star of the town's nature show and his nights living luxuriously in the garage of Park Ranger Beth (Debra Messing) who has raised him since he was a cub.

But every town has its bully and Timberline's is the paranoid uber-hunter Shaw (Gary Sinise) who believes that animals are conspiring against humans. Screeching into town one day he parks next door to Boog's truck with a one-horned mule deer Elliot (Ashton Kutcher) strapped to the hood. Despite Elliot's pleas for help, Boog reluctantly gets involved and releases Elliot - never expecting to see him again.

Elliot however has other plans and follows Boog home hoping to return the favour when he sees him being locked up in a garage for the night. Elliot then proceeds to introduce Boog to an unfamiliar world of sweet temptations and when Boog's true instincts being to emerge they leave a trail of destruction behind them as they rampage through the usually peaceful town. Tranquillized the two troublemakers are reluctantly relocated by Beth into the wild way up in the mountains only too aware that its only three days before the start of open season - and the arrival of Shaw along with all the other hunters descending on Timberline!
