5.0 out of 5 stars Color Me a Sentimentalist, but I Like BB2 Even Better than the Original, February 8, 2007
This review is from: Brother Bear 2 (DVD)
Yes, it is true that the original Brother Bear was excellent, that it was more "earthy" than Brother Bear 2, and that using the voice of Wanda Sykes as the "Sha-Woman" in this sequel was a little odd. Overall, however, I actually found this movie more moving and more enjoyable to watch--over and over again--than the original Brother Bear. I also liked the score and the songs just as well, if not better, in this wonderful sequel. (What the heck does singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge's sexual orientation have to do with anything? See review dated Oct 9, 2006.)

[Warning: Next paragraph may contain minor "spoilers."]

I have raised two sons. Now, I am raising two daughters, so perhaps I have become a sentimentalist! Well, so be it. I am touched, and I want my children to be touched emotionally, when we see the occasional examples of true love in these Disney movies; such as, when Koda is willing to let Kenai return to human form if that is what will make Kenai happy, when Kenai later refuses because his little brother needs him, or in the Tarzan movies when Kala says to Tarzan that all she wants as a mom is for him to be happy--and means it, even though it would make her very sad if he leaves. Or, when Tarzan says: "... you will always be my mother." And when Kerchak finally acknowledges Tarzan as "my son." This depth of love--true love--is also displayed by Feline in Bambi II as she is genuinely happy for Bambi to be running off with his father when she would undoubtedly prefer than he stay and play with her.

These are moments that should touch us emotionally, and perhaps the "Two Worlds - One Family" theme of the Tarzan movies is particularly meaningful to us because our two adopted girls have different racial backgrounds.

Anyway, for whatever it may be worth, I love Brother Bear 2 and enjoy sharing it with all of those close to me who can appreciate this kind of movie. Watch it. I think you will find that the strong criticisms of some are overstated and perhaps even unjustified--but that's why we have chocolate and vanilla, n'est-ce pas??!!!
