Storyline

Harry Davis, principal of the Burberry Elementary School, is concerned because his two little boys wish they were bears. One day, the two boys meet an old gypsy who tells them to use a magic cream and teaches them a spell to turn themselves into bears. When they find their sister's strange freckle cream, they do become bears. Unfortunately, when they turn back into boys, no one will believe their story. Written by Daniel Bubbeo <dbubbeo@cmp.com>

See It for Brenda
23 August 2004 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

The only reason to see this silly film is to see singer Brenda Lee, famous for her hits such as "I'm Sorry," "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," and many, many others. Unfortunately, she doesn't have much screen time, and she's clearly been stuck into this film as an afterthought.

There is one scene where Brenda sits by herself in her bedroom, thinking about her two missing brothers, and she sings a few sad lines of a song to a stuffed bear. It's almost a shock because, for a moment, you're actually moved. In the middle of this fantasy/comedy about the "hijinks" of two little boys who can turn themselves into bears, you're actually moved. But then, the film continues, and it's back to the nonsense.

She isn't very natural as an actress, but, give Brenda a song and she clearly knows what to do. Too bad she didn't get a better vehicle to show her talents.
