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

Poor old Yogi has a rough time of it in this miserable 3D assault of humour-free live action and lumpy animation.
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.
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.
The movie is the opposite of the cartoons: Everyone's body is in motion, but nobody is using his head.
...a patience-testing, headache-inducing disaster with little to offer older viewers.
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.
An all out attack on the eyes and ears...
Yogi Bear ruined the show for me, it was horrible and a complete mess of a film.
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."
This is about as good as a live action yogi bear movie that's gonna be made. Lot like the chipmunk movies, but no as funny. I'm sure kids will love it,i'm gonna stick with the original cartoons.
It's a different can of worms when the reviewer in question is decidedly not in the target demographic for a film. Nobody wants to come with you to watch the movie (even when you offer to pay them to come), so you trudge alone to a matinee screening and reluctantly hand the ticket seller your hard-earned $5. When you enter the theater, you are greeted by the overpowering smell of buttered popcorn and Fruit Roll-Ups. Everybody is either twice your age or a quarter of it. On the plus side, the boys are cuter ... but they don't know how to read.
With that being said, even my sticky-fingered theater brethren didn't laugh once during this live action version of Yogi Bear. And why is live action again? Why does Anna Faris continue on doing this to herself?
