The Country Bears is a 2002 american family musical comedy film, directed by Peter Hastings and produced by Walt Disney Pictures, and based on the Disney theme park attraction Country Bear Jamboree.
Barry Barrington goes on an adventure to save Country Bear Hall by getting the Country Bears back together for a reunion concert.
Why It Sucks
- The idea for a theatrically released film based on a ride attraction is not a very good idea as it would have been better suited for a television special rather than a theatrically released film.
- Poor animatronics that make the bears look like sock puppets. They look even worse due to them always staring on screen and it's incredibly obvious that they're puppets.
- The movie feels like an average G-rated film, but with the bears shoehorned into it.
- Awful acting.
- Incredibly unlikable supporting characters.
- The premise is very confusing and weak, with the bears spending too much time trying to get the band back together.
- Generic soundtrack, which dosen't even fit in the story or setting.
- Awful editing, such as a scene where the bears go into a car-wash and try not to get caught by the police.
- Pathetic and dated jokes, one example is a scene where the main antagonist gets his radio smashed by a rock in his office and shouts: ″Oh, no!″, which is repeated many times throughout the movie.
- The main antagonist is very lame as he dosen't even seem to be accounted for in the film.
- Uninteresting chain of events that only serve to pad out the running time of the movie.
- The ending makes no sense and is rather tiresome to sit through.
- Pointless cameos from Wyclef Jean, Willie Jean, and Elton John
- Christopher Walken's performance can be hilarious at times, such as his line "This isn't over, BEARS!".
On RWW, the film holds an approval rating of 30% based on 32 reviews, with a critic consensus that reads: ″Despite all the celebrities on hand, this spin-off from a theme park attraction still feels tired and hokey.″ On Metacritic, the film has a score of 37 out of 100, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews," and RWW has a score of 4.1/10.
The film was a box office flop, only grossing $18 million on a $35 million budget.
