Life's a Pic-A-Nic
Jellystone Park has been losing business, so greedy Mayor Brown decides to shut it down and sell the land. That means families will no longer be able to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors -- and, even worse, Yogi and Boo Boo will be tossed out of the only home they've ever known. Faced with his biggest challenge ever, Yogi must prove that he really is "smarter than the average bear" as he and Boo Boo join forces with their old nemesis Ranger Smith to find a way to save Jellystone Park from closing forever.
So let’s get the positives out of the way first; it’s mercifully short.
Now on with the negatives - it is offensively unfunny and for a story about Yogi it says a lot about the film that it is at its more bearable when the bears aren’t even on screen. I used to love the cartoon series as a kid but just like The Smurfs, Garfield or Marmaduke these feature length adaptations just don’t work, at all. Even the voice work by both Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake is really bad. But of course all these recent, and very ugly, live action-CGI hybrid films based on popular cartoon series are aimed at a young undemanding audience who will laugh at literally anything. Sadly for anybody over the age of five it is best to avoid.
Yogi (Dan Aykroyd) and his sidekick, Boo Boo (Justin Timberlake), are Jellystone Park's most-notorious troublemakers, hatching countless schemes to separate park visitors from their vittles. Standing in the way of picnic perfection is their long-suffering nemesis, Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh). But when Mayor Brown announces his plans to sell Jellystone Park to loggers, Yogi, Boo Boo and Ranger Smith must join forces to save their beloved campground from closing forever.
It is like a fucking joke or anecdote a friend told you and everybody around you said that the joke suckt and every laught from the so borring joke just told.
The actors practicly suck just as the lazy modern with no new ide but save nature idea just because…
As if me giving "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" a positive rating wasn't bad enough.
Let me leave something very clear. When I saw this for the first time, I was 12 and my taste in film was in its early stages of development. But even back then I was getting sick of live-action cartoon adaptations. Stuff like "Alvin & the Chipmunks", "Underdog", hell even stuff like "The Flinstones" had me tired. They all thought they had to make the source material "cooler" and make it "hipper", and they make them these "cool and modern wise-crackers, dude!" and they end up completely destroying those characters.
What makes this different is that it actually sticks to the classics. Yeah, of course there's the obligatory…
This is where Reverse Flash now lives
Some good fun here.
Film #3 of the "Scavenger Hunt #4" Challenge!
Task #25 A film featuring a bear!
"I think Mother Nature is kind of cranky today."
I'll start this review by admitting that i am definitely not within the target audience for this film. While really i believe that a good children's film has to have something for the older generation to enjoy as well, really the film is made for children. So really, my main complaint with this film is void.
This film was way too childish for me. It was a kids film through and through. There was one, possibly two lines or jokes for adults in this film but 99% of it was childish. Not just…

Why this is my father's favourite film, I don't know...
White man wants the girl
Brown bear wants the pic-a-nic basket
the joys of babysitting
Some good fun here.
Netter Animationsfilm für die ganze Familie. Überragend, wie Yogi Bär, ein Held meiner Kindheit animiert wurde. Insgesamt ist natürlich keine große Story zu erwarten, weil man vor Allem auf die Effekte setzt, diese sind dafür überzeugend und auch die Interaktion zwischen Menschen und animierten Charakteren kommt glaubhaft herüber, auch wenn die Hupfdole aus "Scary-Movie" für mich nie eine ernsthafte Schauspielerin sein wird.
one big ol' UGH.
If only all bears could be like Yogi.......
Yogi has always relied on his quick wit and fast feet to stay one step ahead of irate campers while dodging his long-suffering nemesis, Ranger Smith. But he and Boo Boo are about to face a situation worse than anything Yogi has ever gotten them into: Jellystone Park is being sold.
Unbelievably enough, this cartoon retread was actually pretty funny. It probably helped that I'm a huge Dan Aykroyd fan (he voiced Yogi)... but seriously, it was fun for the young'uns, and relatively painless for me. That's about all you can ask from a childrens' movie isn't it?
These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
The most watched animated movies of all time according to IMDB.
