Storyline Heading
Like other celebrated rock-and-roll groups, the members of the legendary group The Country Bears were torn apart by the perils of their own success: ego, jealousy, and a little too much honey. Beary Barrington tries to convince the bitter ex-members to put aside their differences and perform a benefit concert to save Country Bear Hall.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - ADULTS: This movie isn't as hokey as it seems. The idea of human like talking bears may not seem like a movie adults would enjoy, but they make it work pretty well. You soon forget it's got talking bears and just enjoy the story. It's probably a little slow for very small children, but kids over four or so should enjoy it very much. It has five songs and one big song and dance scene. It's a feel-good movie with a happy ending.

Average

The above rating is an average of the critic reviews below.

(Close new window when finished with Full Reviews)

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Average "The whole talking-animal thing is grisly in The Country Bears, but there are some diversions. Christopher Walken delivers a singular, non-Method performance as a mean (non-bear) bank manager who performs an armpit-fart version of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Average "It's hard to figure who the movie is intended for... Anyone old enough to be interested in the music is unlikely to be interested in the bears--at least, interested in the movie's routine and wheezy plot.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Poor "...the message is...yes kids, it's okay to be different. For adults, however, this just might be a sneakily subversive anti-drug screed; fry your brain too thoroughly, the filmmakers seem to suggest, and your reality could come to resemble what's here on screen.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We were only able to collect 56 moviegoer opinions. Very few people showed up. I guess most people were like me and thought this movie looked too silly. That's unfortunate, because most people really enjoyed "The Country Bears."

Children were obviously the main audience and they rated it very high. Most teens enjoyed it, but there really weren't enough there to make an accurate prediction. Same goes for adult males.

Nearly all of the adult females enjoyed "The Country Bears." This isn't the type of movie an adult would give a real high rating to, so a rating of "Very Good" is actually quite good.

This is certainly a movie worth taking the kids to see and staying around to watch it yourself, especially if you're a female.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
First let me say that I wasn't very interested in seeing the free screening for this movie. That's how bad I thought it looked. But I was pleasantly surprised. It's fun and entertaining most of the time. It's not great, but it's certainly worth watching with the kids, making it a good family movie.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Eleven year-old Beary Barrington's favorite musical group is The Country Bears - the greatest bear rock band in history. Even though the group broke up decades ago, Beary is their number-one fan and has listened to all their old records over and over again. The Bears have their differences now, and haven't spoken to each other in years, but to Beary, nothing is more important than his quest to reunite the group for a benefit concert to save Country Bear Hall, the legendary venue where the band got it start. Featuring musical performances or appearances by real-life rock-and-roll legends Don Henley, John Hiatt, Elton John, Queen Latifah, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, and Brian Setzer, audiences will want to bring the cubs to the biggest rock 'n roll reunion in history.
