Movie Log: Open Season

Recipe for an early-fall animated movie: take two parts Madagascar, one part Cars, a sprinkling of buddy movie, and a pound of "fish out of water." Over-season, and let it half-bake for not quite long enough. Serve when the audience is exhausted, and hope you get away with it.

The boys really wanted to see Open Season, so the whole family set off to the marvelous Kinnelon Clearview Cinema on Sunday (and we weren't in the theater with the dripping ceiling!) to see it. It was a reasonable way to kill about ninety minutes, but not much more than that.

In fact, it's so generic, and so unworthy of further discussion, that I won't say anything more.
