Storyline

Jimmy, a young boy trying to gain acceptance from his peers, is horrified when he sees a circus trainer abusing a bear cub. One of the circus employees tells Jimmy that there is a magic cave in the hills nearby that can transport people to another time, and that maybe he can use it to help the bear. Jimmy does some exploring, finds the cave, and is amazed to find himself transported back to the early 1800's where he encounters Jeremiah, a nature-loving mountain man with a bear friend of his own. Jeremiah agrees to come to the future and help out Jimmy, but the 21st century is quite different from the 19th, and springing the bear cub will not be as easy as Jeremiah thinks. Not in any way related to the "Grizzly Adams" television series. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Simply terrible.
13 October 2008 | by (PA USA) – See all my reviews

My kids did not enjoy this garbage.

Needless to say, I had a mean laugh or two at the absolutely amateurish acting and production values and the pathetic plot and dialog. This is apparently the second of a series of Grizzly Mountain movies. How do movies like this get made and how do they get distributed? And why does my wife pick them out for Family Movie Night?!

I vaguely recollect Grizzly Adams. Despite the disclaimer, this movie is a weak attempt to capitalize on the character and memories of what was undoubtedly a low quality TV series. This movie has forever sullied what dim memories I have of Grizzly Adams.

I kept thinking of the documentary "Grizzly Man" and wishing that perhaps the same fate would befall one or more of the characters in this movie--don't they realize grizzlies are dangerous and make poor pets?!

I gave it two stars because the bear cub was cute.
