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.

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.

Brother Bear probably won't crossover to adult moviegoers without kids [but] it's an intelligent and entertaining addition to the Disney catalog.

Os animadores da Disney fazem mais um trabalho excepcional e repleto de preciosismos.

"Brother Bear" eschews computer animation in favor of the traditional, hand-painted, 2-D variety. As such, it's almost a museum piece.

Brother Bear isn't a marvel in terms of screenwriting urgency, but it proves the theory that if formula is handled with care and enthusiasm, it can still work delightfully.

A New Age-y tale that doesn't quite rank as a Disney masterpiece, but which is enjoyable nonetheless.

By investing in conventions faithfully, it expands the impact of its recycled tropes.

These beasts are beautiful, but "Brother Bear" is no "Beauty and the Beast."

an admittedly uneven but reasonably enjoyable mix of Inuit legend, broad comedy and anthemic Phil Collins tunes...

Brother Bear ups the usual Disney ante by affording the viewer the demise of a brother and a mother before this latest offering is a reel old.

While not a masterpiece along the lines of The Lion King, and not a super-smart witticism-fest like Lilo & Stitch, Brother Bear is deeply heartfelt, touching, and beautiful.
