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!

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.

"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.

A Kid's Review on December 28, 2002
Format: DVD
That's rediculous that hardly anyone likes this movie! It had everything from music,jokes,etc. The DVD didn't have as much bonus materials as [I wanted], but still a great 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!!

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!

Movie shows that young people matter, can do great things with perseverance, and can influence older people to rekindle the passion of what they once loved and were good at. Family friendly. No cussing or use of God's name in vain.

My 7 year old son, who doesn't like the movies for little kids, really liked this movie! He asked to watch it again, which surprised me. He usually likes superhero shows. I think he enjoyed the humor in this one.

The way this movie was done it reminds me a lot of The Blues Brothers Movie. With Country Bear Hall about to be taken by the bank The Country Bears get on a movie length road trip to get the band back together while avoiding the police who think they kidnapped young Beary. Like The Blues Brother movie, The Country Bears often run into music celebs during their stop. Many of which break into a musical numbers.
