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.

Oh Yeah! Country Bear Hall!!!
23 September 2003 | by (Lincoln Nebraska) – See all my reviews

"Over Yonder...A Monkey...I may be chubby, but I'm quick!" How could anyone not enjoy this movie? It's a classic! I found myself laughing so hard, I actually fell off the couch (the car wash scene)...I am 21 years old, and I believe that anyone who has an open heart, and mind, will see the beauty of this film. It's a simple coming of age story, with a twist...this being the kid is a bear, and his family is not. How can you not laugh when his brother shows him the picture of when they first found him? It may be/seem ridiculous...but it's humorous and fun! The music is great, I feel like I am listening to a collection of Classic Rock favorites...I mean, don't look at these bears as bears...look at this story and put Aerosmith, or Van Halen, or the The Who in their place and it makes sense. The cameos in this movie are also great...How can you not like Christopher Walken? He was so funny! Elton John...Willie Nelson, how many big names are in it? It's good clean fun...give it a chance...let the kid out of you for a night, don't analyze, smile and laugh. Let the Country Bears warm your heart! "straight, to the heart of love!"

"They like you." -big al talking to the grass

"And boy did I feel different." Beary's dad trying to make him not feel like a bear... :)

Hurrah for Country Bears! Thank you Disney!
