Storyline

Based on an attraction at Disneyland, the Country Bear Jamboree, "The Country Bears" (2002) is one in a long line of live action Disney family films. The movie is a satire of Behind the Music rock & roll bands. Beary, a young bear raised by a human family in a world where humans and talking bears coexist, attempts to trace his roots. He meets up with the Country Bears, a long-since broken-up band, a parody of bands like the Eagles. Beary helps the Country Bears reunite for one final concert, while searching for who he truly is.

Just Plain Fun
4 August 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We saw this sort of by accident: there weren't any good seats left for SIGNS and we were determined we were going to see a movie. This was on at 5:15. this is what we saw.

It's funny, it doesn't take itself too seriously, and it's fun for the whole family. It's nice to see a movie where the writer and director make entertainment their top priority. It doesn't happen a lot these days.
