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

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.

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

The relative lack of coarseness and snark may come as a surprising relief, even to 21st-century audiences.

"Yogi Bear" lacks even the zinging toddler anarchy of the "Alvin and the Chipmunks" movies.

Fart jokes? Check. 3-D spit takes? Check. Yogi shaking his ursine rump to "Baby Got Back"? Dear Lord, check.

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.

"Yogi Bear" gives cheap hackwork a bad name.

Yogi Bear is a big boo-boo.

Picture Timberlake in the booth recording his lines and you have the best joke in the movie. Everything else is actively painful, a frenetic, unfunny mix of action, romance, dud dialogue, and icky things popping out of the screen.

Five minutes into their feature-length Yogi Bear movie, the filmmakers have more or less run out of material, save for switching up the means by which Yogi swipes baskets, or leaving a few pies to cool on various ledges.

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.

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

Rock-bottom expectations are rewarded, sort of, in this update of Hanna-Barbera's necktied ursus.
December 13, 2010
Neither smarter nor dumber than the average family-friendly comedy.
December 13, 2010
A live-action/cartoon mix that's misguided in just about every way.
