Yogi Bear (2010)

Yogi Bear's 3D effects and all-star voice cast are cold comfort for its aggressively mediocre screenplay.

Movie Info

Everyone's favorite pic-a-nic basket-stealing bear comes to the big screen in "Yogi Bear," a new adventure, filmed in 3D, that combines live action with computer animation. Dan Aykroyd stars as the voice of Yogi, Jellystone Park's notorious troublemaker, and Justin Timberlake as the voice of Boo Boo, Yogi's faithful pal and co-conspirator in his never-ending schemes to separate park visitors from their lunches. Yogi has always relied on his quick wit and fast feet to stay one step ahead of irate

Fond memories of Yogi cartoons may get you some way through this big-screen version - but the nostalgia soon wears off.

You've seen this movie before, when it was called Alvin and the Chipmunks, but the filmmakers are hoping that your kids don't remember.

The movie is the opposite of the cartoons: Everyone's body is in motion, but nobody is using his head.

This being the highly advanced 21st century, simple animation won't do, so we must suffer through mediocre, lifeless computer-generated animation of this treasured twosome.

A bland 21st-century family comedy without a single moment that captures the wit, energy or sophistication of the original, which by now dates back more than 50 years.

A bland but innocuous film that fails to take advantage of its two likable leading characters.

It's a terrible, dumb, unimaginative film that really isn't worth the price of a cinema ticket even with ... the excellent Road Runner short that comes before it.

One of the worst family films I've seen since another animated adaptation: Garfield. Talking bears aside, the film lacks logic, energy and, most of all, fun.

Adult chaperone who drew the short straw? You can settle in for an 82 minute nap. Sounds good, right?

Millions of adults grew up watching Yogi Bear cartoons, but instead of playing to those memories, it does as little as possible to technically qualify as a "Yogi Bear movie."

Youngsters might enjoy the movie's colorful locales, lovable if doltish bears, and intermittent slapstick comedy.

I couldn't help wishing the evil government types would get their act together, demolish the park and rid the world of any habitat that could spawn such an awful bastard.

Yogi Bear barely raises a grin, it's only Miller and Daly's charisma and ad-lib that goes some way to saving it.

Even the most nostalgic and forgiving Yogi fan will likely find it hard to warm to the 21st-century, computer-generated, 3D make-over he's undergone here.

Small children with low levels of expectation are the target for this blandly unimaginative mix of live-action and 3D animation.

Any potential retro-charm is quickly rubbed out by creepy CGI, a tired reality-TV conceit and failure to grasp that Yogi's appeal lies in his delivery and quick wit, not eye-stabbing 3D gimmicks or life-like depictions of picnic-basket heists.

There are some watchable 3D sequences in a boat on the rapids and a makeshift airplane, but it's pretty grim for anyone over six.

February 11, 2011 Full Review Source: Independent

[C]ertainly not the worst thing you could have sat through this year so far, but it lacks any flavour or verve; it is a hollow shade rather than the vibrant, jovial caper it should be.

Poor old Yogi has a rough time of it in this miserable 3D assault of humour-free live action and lumpy animation.

If the writers had produced something that was smarter than the average script, then perhaps we would have been in business.

Audience Reviews for Yogi Bear

Cast: Dan Aykroyd, Justin Timberlake, Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh, T.J. Miller, Nathan Corddry, Andrew Daly, Josh Robert Thompson, David Stott

Director: Eric Brevig

Summary: When the greedy mayor (Andrew Daly) decides to close Jellystone Park to cash in by selling the land, Yogi Bear (voiced by Dan Aykroyd) and his sidekick Boo-Boo (voiced by Justin Timberlake) must team with their adversary, Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh), to save their home. Meanwhile, filmmaker Rachel (Anna Faris) follows Yogi and captures his antics.

My Thoughts: "Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake deserve props for the voices. They did a great job. But the film itself was a little on the boring side bringing very few laughs. My niece's and nephew completely disagree with me, as they should considering they are the audience for which this film was intended to be made for. But us grown ups who loved this cartoon as a child will in the end, prefer the cartoon over the film."

This is about as good as a live action yogi bear movie that's gonna be made. Lot like the chipmunk movies, but no as funny. I'm sure kids will love it,i'm gonna stick with the original cartoons.

It's a different can of worms when the reviewer in question is decidedly not in the target demographic for a film. Nobody wants to come with you to watch the movie (even when you offer to pay them to come), so you trudge alone to a matinee screening and reluctantly hand the ticket seller your hard-earned $5. When you enter the theater, you are greeted by the overpowering smell of buttered popcorn and Fruit Roll-Ups. Everybody is either twice your age or a quarter of it. On the plus side, the boys are cuter ... but they don't know how to read.

With that being said, even my sticky-fingered theater brethren didn't laugh once during this live action version of Yogi Bear. And why is live action again? Why does Anna Faris continue on doing this to herself?
