A Bearific family film, very exciting.....the bears are amazing!
Old Harry (Richard Harris) is telling his grandchildren a campfire story out in the woods. And, what a tale it is! When Harry was young, his mother died and his father, Tyrone (Bryan Brown) was a world adventurer who took months to come back and retrieve his son. After their reunion, Tyrone suddenly announced his intent to capture a grizzly bear! Father and son, along with a ragtag team of somewhat seamy volunteers, go out in the woods and try to do the deed. But, low and behold, when the party captures two grizzly cubs, the mother bear captures young Harry! Thinking he is her new offspring, Mother Grizzly keeps close tabs on Harry, preventing an early escape. Will Harry ever see his father again? This film is just, well, bearific! The human actors do a great job but the bears in the film are beyond compare. One truly can walk hand in hand with a grizzly and experience what this young boy did every step of the way. The scenery is lovely, too, making the film a great pleasure to watch. If you have any animal lovers in your household, or even if you just want to stir up some excitement for a family film night, you could hardly do better than this movie. It is a great achievement in cinema for audiences of all ages, pawsitively marvelous. Don't hesitate to look for the film at the library or video store, today, tomorrow or very soon. Your family will clap for joy at the film's end.
