"Bears" could have used a lot more science; more substantive information in the place of wacky one-liners. Still, the images trump everything.

Bonus points for all but eliminating the easy scatological humor. Does a bear (poop) in the woods? You won't find out watching "Bears."
April 18, 2014
There are grittier nature documentaries out there, but "Bears" is simple and effective, and delivered with that friendly Disney touch. Its intent is to make you say, "awww," and it does its job well.

All this is heartwarming, in a bloody, ursine-centric way.

When focused on nature, Bears is breathtaking.

With gorgeous cinematography and playful narration from John C. Reilly, it's a Goldilocks film -- one that will juuust right for mamma bears, papa bears and baby bears alike.

Despite the bracing beauty of the wilderness, and the respite provided by cubs at play, the movie is primarily a sobering treatise on survival.

John C. Reilly's friendly, Midwestern tone seems well-suited to the subject matter, as well as the whole genre, but it's the incredible pictures that make this movie stand so tall, and with so much power.

The result is an upbeat and frankly gorgeous nature documentary.

The "nature" aspects of Bears are undercut by the need to turn this into a live-action Disney cartoon, complete with cuddly heroes and nasty villains.

The devotion and persistence of these animals is a powerful reminder that family connections link all species. With this peek into their world, we are more aware of our own.

If the sight of bear cubs prancing through wildflowers doesn't make you smile, then you probably won't like the new Disneynature documentary Bears. You also probably aren't human.
April 17, 2014
As with all of Disneynature's features, there's astonishing documentary work on display in "Bears" - but a leaner, less conspicuously structured view of the wild might have had even greater impact.

An enjoyable and visually stunning romp through the scenic Alaskan wilderness with a small family of bears.

If you want to teach your kid about bears, there's probably a better PBS program you can find somewhere.

Bears, the latest of Disney's Earth Day releases, might not win any awards, but it has the bare necessities of any terrific nature-doc: stunning images, arresting voice-over and a powerful story of survival.
April 17, 2014
As with Fothergill's previous nature documentaries, "Bears" is a story of triumph and family.
April 17, 2014
The astounding footage of a mother bear and two cubs fishing, fighting and hanging tough through a challenging year of foraging transcends the folksy narration.

Whether adventurous Scout is getting his claw stuck in a clam or the fuzzball siblings are riding on the back of their mom as she fords a river, the movie is crammed with memorable images.
