‘Bears’ Review: A Year in the Life, From Hibernation to Salmon Fishing and Back Again

3 hours ago

The adorableness factor is pretty much off the charts in “Bears,” the latest annual offering from Disney's “Disneynature” imprint.

Young viewers who found it traumatic when those Disney “African Cats” devoured zebras and gazelles may be less disturbed at the sight of bears tearing into salmon, but there are occasional moments of peril that parents might want to consider before bringing their littlest ones to this G-rated documentary. »
