    Most of the resulting film is downright bizarre. Which, as it turns out, is not entirely to its disadvantage. show more

    If the other theme-park movies are as appealing, go ahead, bring 'em on. show more

    Two stars for adults -- 3 stars for kids. The under-5 set should take to The Country Bears like bears to honey - even if anyone much older will find this broad-as-a-barn-door Disney musical bear-ly tolerable. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It's hard to figure who the movie is intended for. In shape and purpose, it's like a G-rated version of "This Is Spinal Tap," but will its wee target audience understand the joke? show more

    Unfortunately, the humans only have scripts to support them. So for every bear triumph, Country Bears also features cliched jokes, corny sentiment, ludicrous shtick and the most flabbergasting set of star cameos since Martha Stewart and Michael Jackson wandered into "Men in Black II." show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    This is either one of the best “head” films of all time or one of the worst examples of Disneyfied opportunism to come down the pike in years. I'd like to think it was the former, really I would, but somehow I suspect otherwise. show more

    i have a 3 year old grandson that would rate this movie a 5 star as he watches it at least 3 times a day.The puppeteers that workl these puppets should win a award as well as the designers of them . after the multitimes i have watched this movie ,I still can't believe that they are puppets.The only probalem i have is that the movie now skips and I can't find another one for him . carolyn crowell
