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.

Smarter than your average family movie? Unfortunately not.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The new Yogi Bear is survivable. That's as far as I'll go.

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.

[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.

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