Amid its heaping serving of cuddliness ... the film doesn't sugarcoat the harsh reality and unforgiving elements with which the bears have to contend.

The Disneynature movies shouldn't be mistaken for traditional documentary, but if they act as a gateway drug for young children to learn more about the animal kingdom, then the films are serving a real purpose.
April 17, 2014
A formulaically entertaining combination of gorgeous cinematography and unapologetic anthropomorphization.
April 17, 2014
Don't look for Disneynature's "Salmon" anytime soon.
April 17, 2014
A delightful portrait of a year in the lives of a family of brown bears.
April 17, 2014
True to its Disney lineage, Bears is a theme-park version of reality, but one built on sincere understanding of and affection for the natural world and all its creatures-especially the really cute ones.
April 17, 2014
Although Bears doesn't have a stated green message, it's hard to see the majestic natural beauty presented onscreen and not feel stewardship urges.

There's only so much editing can do to make a bear story seem like a human one, and the filmmakers (Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey directed) also go to unfortunate lengths to give human characteristics like laziness to the bears.

The movie is so slick, so well-crafted and so beautiful, it's easy to forget that it was essentially made out of found footage.

Bears works very well as an emotional story of survival and family. But at 77-minutes, it felt a little overlong.
April 17, 2014
Bears is entertaining, suitably suspenseful, and amusing, boosted by Reilly's enthusiasm and the natural appeal of its stars.
April 17, 2014
a sweet, breezy nature film that the entire family can enjoy

It may be rated G, but for the most part this is serious stuff, as potentially traumatic for younger viewers as the death of Bambi's mother.
April 16, 2014
The best thing Disney does with its theme park millions is put them into these beautiful, kid-friendly nature documentaries
April 14, 2014
Another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series.

Surely some of the film's various incidents have been creatively stitched together from stray bits and pieces of footage, but its central conflict is an entirely organic one, and rarely is any offscreen string pulling distractingly evident.
April 9, 2014
Co-directors Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey's stirringly captured movie unlocks a sincere sense of awe and reverence within viewers' hearts, even as it frustrates an audience looking for a bit more.
