Day 289

movie: Open Season
starring: Martin Lawrence, Ashton Kutcher
genre: Comedy,
year: 2006
format: Shaw Video On Demand

plot: A bear that has been raised as a pet is let back into the wild after destroying a gas station mart. The other forest animals soon end up with him as they try to make it back to town before the hunters gather for hunting season.

We rented this because of babysitting and it's a kid's cartoon.  Or is it?
I was watching this wondering why on earth they would make a movie for kids under the age 10, about a hunter? 

I know the main plot seems to be about the deer and the bear's bond, but the deer is a bit of a delinquent to begin with, leading the bear on to do what he does in the beginning which gets him in trouble with the law.  And the hunter seems to be one of the most moronic and cruel characters I've ever seen in a cartoon. (Which if your hunting for something other then survival you must be)

Can you tell I really did not care for this film

what do i think i learned from this film?
This film seems at first to be all about the peer pressure, but soon comes down to morals and family. One of the plots is about how long you should stay sheltered before moving out on your own, and taking responsibility for your own actions. There is another subplot here about animal cruelty but it seems to be overshadowed by the "growing up"  part.
