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.

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.

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.

...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.

"A rich, deeply felt story about self-actualization and love, as well as about learning to respect nature on its own terms. It's the new Bambi.

Skirts self-parody in its rigid adherence to the cartoon-epic template.
