Movie Info

It's summer in New York City, and the neighborhood bears are coming out of hibernation. A group of friends is getting ready for the annual week-long celebration of all things bear, but plans keep getting turned upside down. BearCity is Queer As Folk meets Sex in the City - only with more hair and tons of hot bear-on-bear action! Closet cub Tyler fantasizes about stuffing Santa's stocking and finding a Daddy bear to do more than cuddle. But as he dives into the bear community, he finds that it can be hard for a hairless guy to get some fuzzy loving. Scene stealers Brent and Fred are the maybe-not-so-monogamous couple who invite him to move in as they figure out how to spice things up. Southern bear-belle Michael struggles to juggle his lover, his job search and his body image issues, but an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction might solve all three. Rakish Roger is the stud-about-town, and he'll pretty much bang (on screen) anyone with facial hair. That is, until an awesomely awkward encounter at the local bowling alley challenges both his bowling prowess and his bear-loving mojo. Add to that some adorable eye-candy, an indispensable fairy-god-roommate, beer busts and "stroller meat," and BearCity makes for a beartastic summertime romp. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Bearcity

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

Of the crop of gay-centered features from TLA Releasing...the romantic dramedy BearCity certainly shows the most complexity.

Douglas Langway's middling comedy is sort of a Sex and the City for big, hirsute gay guys and the younger cubs who fancy them...

Eventually buckles under the weight of affable but unfunny camp.

Despite a schmaltzy original score and some clunky direction, the film's well-portrayed characters and spot-on depiction of the scene make this a pleasant enough romp.

...Sex in the City meets Queer as Folk in New York City's bear scene.

Full Review… | January 22, 2012

Director Douglas Langway is aware that while bear-ness could be seen as a response to a culture obsessed with gender-conformant and hairless young bodies, it can also be a rather unoriginal one.

Audience Reviews for Bearcity

Comes across as a pilot episode for a Queer as Folk come Sex & the City set in NY bear scene, but it's an enjoyable romp filled with likable characters.

I had big hopes for Bear City. But it wasn't at all what I expected. The acting was just ok, though some roles were played better than others. I was kind of let down, as the sex scenes kind of killed it for me. I think if they had left out the rampant sex, and kept things geared more to the main role landing his daddy. I would have liked it better. The audio was kind of bad as well, as the music and the moaning was often louder then the dialog. Though they certainly cast some nice looking bearded men as extras. It had it's moments, but over all, it was just ok. As usual to many stories going on to keep track of everything.
