great movie. Informative, funny, entertaining and beautiful. The perfect family movie, my five year old loved it.

While working in Richmond Va a few years ago, some idiot father lifted his infant boy over the railing of the bear compound, and the child was injured. The keepers were forced to execute the bear! It is hoped that this film might enlighten other potentially irresponsible parents.

Very cute movie. Of course it has a happy ending! It's Disney. I enjoyed it very much.

This just shows how horrible movies have been lately when they put a documentary about bears at your local theater. Something you can see on TV about once a month. Sad.

Do any of the babies die or mom? Want to know before I take my little grand kids..

Bears also features nearly wall-to-wall voiceover, but this time it comes courtesy of John C. Reilly. His inherently likable, goofy sweetness shines through, making the material, um, bearable, if you will. Full Review

It has lighthearted moments, but is also suspenseful at the right times. Full Review

The "nature" aspects of Bears are undercut by the need to turn this into a live-action Disney cartoon, complete with cuddly heroes and nasty villains. Full Review

This is one of those nature documentaries that’s pretty much solely interested in being entertaining, and so is cleverly edited to look like the linear story of a mother (dubbed Sky) and her newborns (Scout and Amber). Full Review

Some of the most striking moments in Bears are during the film’s closing credits, when we see how alarmingly close the camera crew was to the animals. We’re reminded us that while the movie Bears is both sweet and humane, the real bears are neither. Full Review
