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.

[C]ertainly not the worst thing you could have sat through this year so far, but it lacks any flavour or verve; it is a hollow shade rather than the vibrant, jovial caper it should be.

Compared to quality animated alternatives such as Tangled and Megamind, Yogi is unBearable.

An aggressively awful movie that's much, much dumber than the average kiddie flick.

I found the movie quite flat and uninteresting but then, I'm a grown-up.

I couldn't help wishing the evil government types would get their act together, demolish the park and rid the world of any habitat that could spawn such an awful bastard.

Weak as they've been, the "Alvin and the Chipmunks" movies are operating on a higher plane than this.

...to damn the whole endeavor with the faintest of praise, it at least has the decency to keep the fart jokes to a minimum

Yogi Bear barely raises a grin, it's only Miller and Daly's charisma and ad-lib that goes some way to saving it.

These are "lunchbox movies," big-budget multiplex fodder -- a character who was on some studio executive's second grade lunchbox with some potty humor and boombox oldies.

"Yogi Bear" gives cheap hackwork a bad name.

If the writers had produced something that was smarter than the average script, then perhaps we would have been in business.

New York Times
December 17, 2010
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/2

Yogi Bear can claim all he wants that he's smarter than the average bear, but his latest big-screen incarnation is uncomfortably close to being a big-screen boo-boo.

The problem here is Hollywood, as ever, committing a series of safe nostalgia-fueled films that represent less risk than, say, actually making something new.

The classic Jellystone sign cries out for an edit: from "Please Don't Feed the Bears," to "Please Don't See the Bears."

A live-action/cartoon mix that's misguided in just about every way.

Genial but instantly forgettable, Yogi Bear takes the beloved Hanna-Barbera character and shoehorns him into an all-too-familiar kids' movie.
