Rough rule of thumb: the more an animated movie drones on about the Great Spirit, the less likely it is to have any great spirit.

While the animation itself (from the same team as Mulan) is charming and at times beautiful, the script is banal and uninspired.

...often just as dull as it is engaging...

If "the CEO wants to sell teddy bears" isn't going to inspire writers to do their best work, what on Earth possibly could?

Compared to the Disney classics, this is a lazy and forgettable misfire.

Modest but guileless.

A sweet family film about love and tolerance.

It also seems to want to have a message, but it's a little tougher to spot than the usual "Be true to yourself" or "Face up to your destiny."

Brother Bear is a very mild animated entry from Disney with a distinctly recycled feel.

Another watchable, old-fashioned, uninspired Disney animation.

Predictable? Yes. Corny? Sure. But Brother Bear is still good, family fun.

A lame duck of a movie.

'Es una de esas joyitas que no pueden faltar en ninguna colección personal y cuyo valor seguramente será reconocido en los años por venir.'

The movie isn’t as witty as Monsters, Inc. and the storytelling isn’t as sharp as in Tarzan, but the theme of environmental kindness is priceless.

I still don't understand how Brother Bear got an Oscar nomination for Best Animated film, but there are plenty of worse movies out there.

It's another must-have for Disney fans.

...for all its earnestness, its wholesomeness, and its uplifting moral values, Brother Bear is formula Disney.

Great music from Phil Collins and a couple of familiar moose make Brother Bear an animated film worth checking out with the whole family.
