...the movie just might be worth a rental if only for the sight of watching Christopher Walken belt out a musical number using only his hand and his armpit.

It's like an all-star salute to Disney's cheesy commercialism.

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.

Functions more as a product than a movie.

By turns numbingly dull-witted and disquietingly creepy.

It's fitting that a movie as artificial and soulless as The Country Bears owes its genesis to an animatronic display at Disneyland.

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

The movie left me feeling that I never wanted to see another movie in my life. Yes, it's that bad. It's worse than that bad.

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.

How on earth did Disney manage to convince these talented people to get involved in this monumental suck-fest?

Good music, creative twists and a moving performance by freaky Christopher Walken saved this potentially stinky kiddie film

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

...a plotline that's as lumpy as two-day old porridge...the filmmakers' paws, sad to say, were all over this "un-bear-able" project!

Stuart Little, on a neighboring screen, realizes his situation for what it is. Are mice smarter than bears?

Despite yet another endearingly eccentric turn by Christopher Walken, this is as bad as anyone could possibly imagine.

The Country Bears wastes an exceptionally good idea. But the movie that doesn't really deliver for country music fans or for family audiences
