I think this is a cute movie which is comparable to the Shrek movies. If you are OK with those, you should be OK with this one. My 6 year old thought the scenes in the hunter's cabin were scary, and left the room for those, but other than that it was silly and fun for her. She has this to say: "Open Season is a very good movie, other than one part, that may be a little stressing for your child." My 10 year old loved it. People have written that the movie uses the f word in the opening menu, and for the record, I am pretty sure the little animal, who is speaking with a Scottish accent and is supposed to be a parody of Mel Gibson in Braveheart, says "get off my back you buck-tooth..." something (I can't understand the last word). I think people think he's saying "get off my back you f'ing ...." There is one scene where Boog is "drunk" from breaking into a convenience store and getting high on sugar. There are a few jokes that have sexual connotations and also some at the expense of large woman for her weight, but I did not find it offensive. I would recommend this movie for 6 or 7 and up. It has a sweet message about finding out who you really are and where you belong. It is WAY more appropriate than a movie like "Wreck It Ralph," which for me, had few to no redeeming qualities.
