The Country Bears (2002)

The Country Bears

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Despite all the celebrities on hand, this spin-off from a theme park attraction still feels tired and hokey.


Movie Info

Like other celebrated rock-and-roll groups, the members of the legendary group 'The Country Bears'--Ted and Fred Bedderhead, Tennessee O'Neal and Zeb Zober--were torn apart by the perils of their own success: ego, jealousy and a little too much honey. Can eager young fan Beary Barrington convince the bitter ex-members of the rock band to put aside their differences and perform a benefit concert to save Country Baer Hall, the legendary venue where the band got its start?

Kids will probably enjoy the sight of huge, bumbling teddy bears... Parents will exit wondering why this piece of unnecessary cross-promotion wasn't released straight to video.

It's mildly amusing, but I certainly can't recommend it.

This ingrown mutant is easily the most bizarre children's film made in this country since 1982's lab-rat apocalypse The Secret of NIMH.

Pic as a whole is a gently and genuinely amusing treat that should bring smiles to target auds.

If you're looking to take your children to something harmless, that doesn't embarrass anyone, this light comedy ... is your next outing.

So awkward, so leaden, so virtually laugh-free that it's guaranteed to bring down the Happy Meals it's being marketed with.

Audience Reviews for The Country Bears

For a kid's movie, this was actually decent. The bears are cute and the story is okay. One of the few kids films I have seen that hasn't made me want to pull my hair out just for something else to do!

It was fun to see another Disney ride brought to life, but this was in no way a good movie. It was extremely corny and had an overused plot. It would've been better as an animated movie, because the Disneyland attraction is about singing bears.
