Excerpt: Just watched Yogi Bear. The plot was definitely written with children as the target audience, incorporating every possible cliché into the script. The dialogue was stupid. The humor wasn't funny. The characters were one-dimensional. If this movie wasn't a 3D pic-a-nic basket, I wouldn't have been able to sit through the first 15 minutes. I can now say with confidence though that Eric Brevig knows how to make great-looking 3D.
Summary: This was not very great. But it is still very entertaining and if you have a good sense of humor you will definitely love this movie. The only thing is DO NOT expect it to be a four star movie.
Excerpt: This movie at least deserves better than 4 reviews so I will add my 2 cents worth. I enjoyed this for what it was. Yogi stacks up better than most movies of the same genre. I picked up Smurfs on release day and wished i could reverse time and get my money and time back. This movie had all the right moments that make a movie of this type flow smooth and enjoyable.
Excerpt: Probably one of the worst acting movies my girlfriend and I have seen so far on 3D home blu ray. There were some total screw ups on acting from all the actors, some worst that others. However, the 3D effect was pretty good. We enjoyed watching the movie because it did have good 3D video, but the story was predictabe. The colors were good and we did not see any ghosting or blurring during playback. Just keep in mind that the acting could have been far better.
Excerpt: The Yogi Bear movie is just like the cartoon…only longer…and is certainly worth seeing for any childhood Yogi Bear fan looking for 82 minutes of lighthearted fun and pure escapism. The city is in financial trouble and smarmy Mayor Brown (Andrew Daly) sees this as a great opportunity to fund his campaign for Governor and bring in more funds to support his life style by closing down the loss-making Jellystone Park and sell it off to logging companies.
Flawless big screen adaptation of Yogi for the fans

Summary: This movie fulfilled all the expectations I had. I grew up watching dubbed Yogi Bear cartoons and I am kind of a fan of that kind of humor. Simplistic yet profound in some way, and always with a very positive attitude. That is exactly what this movie delivers. Plain old simple jokes for everybody, kids and parents. If, like myself, you're a fan of Yogi Bear you won't be disappointed. Indeed this was the best carton to big screen adaptation I've seen.
Summary: When reviewing a family movie, I look at it a few different ways: first, is it appropriate for my three kids; second, is it entertaining to me and my kids; and third, is there a decent storyline. I didn't see Yogi Bear in theaters and I am glad I didn't spend money, for a family of five, on tickets and concession items that go with taking my family to a big screen showing.
Summary: Oh please. "Yogi Bear" is terrible film with nothing useful. From acting (oh I forgot, there IS no acting) to story, everything tastes extremely bland. Just... just don't watch it. It's meaningless as hell.
