Wannabe Disney type film that is dull and doesn't utilize its wonderful talent., 23 April 2003
Author: gohurdler1 from Califonia

"The Two Little Bears" is an exceedingly terrible film. It's a wannabee Disney movie that was made by 20th Century Fox in 1961. The special effects are poor. It has a very good cast whose talents weren't fully realized in this production. Soupy Sales is a very funny comedian but his humor wasn't utilized in this movie as Officer McGovern. Eddie Albert as Harry Davis (the father) was good in the film. Albert was in his early 50's when he played the role so he fit well into the character. The children, Butch Patrick and Donnie Carter in the film seemed to blasé and the names Timmy and Billy were so generic it's like the writers didn't even try. The child actors probably weren't seasoned enough as actors or maybe the script wasn't good enough for them to work with as material.

The film has a cheesy story line of two children that can wish themselves into becoming bear cubs. Their power to will themselves into bear cubs causes problems for their father played by Albert who is trying to get promoted as a principle at the school district that he works at. The film has a cheesy ending which is predictable. If the film were good I could have tolerated the cheesy ending.

This isn't a film that I would advice in purchasing or renting unless you are truly bored to death or are big admirers of the actors in it.
