"The Country Bears: Out Of The Woods" Mockumentary

Editorial Reviews

Disney's legendary group comes alive as The Country Bears star in their first feature film. Chronicling one of the most heartwarming family adventures ever, THE COUNTRY BEARS is packed with hilarious comedy, fantastic fun, and foot-stomping music for the whole family. For Beary Barrington, The Country Bears' young #1 fan, fitting in with his all-too-human family is proving im-paws-ible. When he runs away to find Country Bear Hall and his heroes, he discovers the venue that made them famous is near foreclosure. Beary hightails it over the river and through the woods to get the Bears in the Band back together for an all-out reunion concert to save Country Bear Hall. And on the way to find his place in the world, Beary learns that true families are made up of those people who love you the most!

4.0 out of 5 stars Me slamming the critics who slammed this movie... March 19, 2003
Format:DVD
When I found out there was going to be a film based on the now defunct Disney attraction I was looking forward to it. After reading media reviews, however, I was certain this movie was going to be a certifiable dud. Which only proves you should never listen to the media critics.
The movie is about a young bear whose favourite band (something like a cross between the Allman Brothers and the Grateful Dead, but all bears)has been disbanded for 10 years, and their iconic hall (something like the grand ole opry) is going to be destroyed by an unscrupulous landlord. The movie doesn't have the typical non-stop slapstick comedy kids films seem to think are necessary (although the carwash scene definitely made me laugh). Most of the fun parts revolve around the cameos by Brian Setzer, Queen Latifah, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Don Henley, etc and if you're a fan of country-rock and blues, you should like the film. The appeal should be there if you feel nostalgic about the old Disney country bear hall too. While young children might find the film slow, older kids and adults who recognize the value of getting back something lost and a good music soundtrack should appreciate the movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars It Won't Put You Into Hibernation April 19, 2004
Format:DVD
"The Country Bears" is a good family film. It isn't the best movie Disney ever cranked out, but it will hold your attention for about an hour and a half. It follows the story of young Beary Barrington, a boy/bear unsure of his purpose in life. He doesn't fit in with his human family(or at least that's what he thinks), so he sets out for "Country Bear Hall," where he believes he'll fit in. When he gets there, the place is about to be leveled to the ground, so he decides to reunite the band for a benefit concert. What follows is a good, clean family film about friendship, family, and tons of musical cameos.
It has a solid cast of well-known and not-so-well known actors. Christopher Walken plays the sore loser turned destructive banker bent on destroying Country Bear Hall. Deidrich Bader and "Chill" Mitchell play two goofy state highway patrolmen. Haley Joel Osment provides the voice of "Beary." Steve Tobolowsky plays the fun father figure of this film.

The film has a good overall message, but some younger kids may be turned off by the pace. It does introduce the younger lot to musicians like Don Henley, Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Elton John, Brian Setzer, and Don Was. It also has cameos by stars the youngsters will probably recognize like Wyclef Jean and Queen Latifah. I think that's what I like most about this film. It covers the Country Bear's "influence" across the board and manages to mix a number of musical genres into one. From hip-hop to rockabilly, it's all covered here. The Country Bear band has a Southern rock sound, with a little Eagles thrown in to boot.
For good family fun, I recommend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical fun for the entire family!! February 7, 2004
Format:DVD
I highly recommend this movie to anyone who has young children. My 7 year old is just in love with this movie and knows all of the words to every song. Great characters, lots of music, and appearances by many famous stars are traits that make this a top movie to own. Disney did a great job on this one!!

5.0 out of 5 stars ENTERTAINING! September 15, 2003
Format:DVD
I watched this movie with my 4 year old granddaughter who
absolutely loved it. Beary, a little bear cub has been raised in a human household with a human brother who seems to be anything but loving towards Beary. The Country Bears are Beary's
idols and after feeling that he was not a part of his 'human' family he sets off to find his destiny and through his faith in them the Country Bears, who had dismantled as a group, are brought back together.
This was a really cute movie, had some great music and dancing in it and was very upbeat. Also had a splash of humor, nice touch! Great for the family to enjoy together!

5.0 out of 5 stars Three cheers for The Country Bears. January 16, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I thought that not only was this movie cute but, full of adventure and good music. The characters; Ted, Fred, Tennessee, Zeb, Henry, Big Al and of course Beary challenged the imaginations of young and old alike. It brought out the kid in all of us, and what adult don't need that once in awhile? This was a fun movie and I reccomend it to movie goers of all ages. Three cheers for The Country Bears!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful surprise! December 17, 2002
Format:DVD
I'm 16 years old and being such a huge Disney fan I went to see this movie at the movies! I thought that it would be another "little kid" movie but imagine my suprise when the movie ended and I found myself wanting to see it again! With all the guest appearances by Elton John, Krystal etc. and that adorable Beary, this movie proved to be a wonderful film that the whole family can enjoy! I highly recommend it!
