This is the sort of film that most hard-bitten critics will refuse to like.

Watchable cartoon-to-live-action adaptation that earns points for a great Yogi impersonation by Dan Aykroyd and some surprisingly decent dialogue...

There's no real reason for this live action/animation hybrid version of the classic cartoon besides the fact that digital effects allowed them to do it. But at least it's rather undemanding good fun while it lasts.

Slapstick comedies are rare nowadays, especially ones that viewers of all ages can enjoy. So three cheers for this part-animated redo of the old Hanna-Barbera cartoon.

Kudos to director Eric Brevig and his team of digital animation artists for a rendering of Yogi that, for all its wonderful detail, remains faithful to the lovable cartoon bear of yore.

Kids will love it while adults will find it un-bear-able!

It's not without its faults, but this is refreshingly faithful to the original cartoons.

Yogi Bear is a good-hearted, delightful story that captures the spirit of its original, leaving its audience smiling (and possibly hungry).

"Yogi Bear" resurrects the long-hibernating title character with a fair amount of skill.

This is a cute movie, a kid's movie, and a rather good one.

Compared to some kid flicks, "Yogi Bear" is rather sweet.

There's nothing particularly inventive in the plot or grade-school humor, but the movie skates by on the timeless, undemanding charm of watching a tie-wearing bear try to steal people's lunches.

Rock-bottom expectations are rewarded, sort of, in this update of Hanna-Barbera's necktied ursus.

A bland but innocuous film that fails to take advantage of its two likable leading characters.

It's a terrible, dumb, unimaginative film that really isn't worth the price of a cinema ticket even with ... the excellent Road Runner short that comes before it.

One of the worst family films I've seen since another animated adaptation: Garfield. Talking bears aside, the film lacks logic, energy and, most of all, fun.

Smarter than your average family movie? Unfortunately not.
