AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Yogi Bear's 3D effects and all-star voice cast are cold comfort for its aggressively mediocre screenplay.

Movie Info

Everyone's favorite pic-a-nic basket-stealing bear comes to the big screen in "Yogi Bear," a new adventure, filmed in 3D, that combines live action with computer animation. Dan Aykroyd stars as the voice of Yogi, Jellystone Park's notorious troublemaker, and Justin Timberlake as the voice of Boo Boo, Yogi's faithful pal and co-conspirator in his never-ending schemes to separate park visitors from their lunches. Yogi has always relied on his quick wit and fast feet to stay one step ahead of irate campers while dodging his long-suffering nemesis, Ranger Smith. But he and Boo Boo are about to face a situation worse than anything Yogi has ever gotten them into... Jellystone Park is being sold! To cover his mismanagement of city funds and fuel his election campaign, Mayor Brown plans to sell the park to loggers. Families will no longer be able to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors Jellystone has always provided--and, even worse, Yogi, Boo Boo, and all their friends will be tossed out of the only home they've ever known. Faced with his biggest challenge ever, Yogi must prove he really is "smarter than the average bear," as he and Boo Boo join forces with Ranger Smith to find a way to save the park from closing forever. -- (C) Warner Bros

Fond memories of Yogi cartoons may get you some way through this big-screen version - but the nostalgia soon wears off.

Time Out
Top Critic

You've seen this movie before, when it was called Alvin and the Chipmunks, but the filmmakers are hoping that your kids don't remember.

The movie is the opposite of the cartoons: Everyone's body is in motion, but nobody is using his head.

This being the highly advanced 21st century, simple animation won't do, so we must suffer through mediocre, lifeless computer-generated animation of this treasured twosome.

Taking the kids to a matinee of Yogi Bear in 3-D is no picnic.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

A bland 21st-century family comedy without a single moment that captures the wit, energy or sophistication of the original, which by now dates back more than 50 years.

Cast: Dan Aykroyd, Justin Timberlake, Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh, T.J. Miller, Nathan Corddry, Andrew Daly, Josh Robert Thompson, David Stott Director: Eric Brevig Summary: When the greedy mayor (Andrew Daly) decides to close Jellystone Park to cash in by selling the land, Yogi Bear (voiced by Dan Aykroyd) and his sidekick Boo-Boo (voiced by Justin Timberlake) must team with their adversary, Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh), to save their home. Meanwhile, filmmaker Rachel (Anna Faris) follows Yogi and captures his antics. My Thoughts: "Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake deserve props for the voices. They did a great job. But the film itself was a little on the boring side bringing very few laughs. My niece's and nephew completely disagree with me, as they should considering they are the audience for which this film was intended to be made for. But us grown ups who loved this cartoon as a child will in the end, prefer the cartoon over the film."
