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.

After Tennessee and Trixie's performance in the bar, a bar patron comments that it was better than Eagles. The patron is Don Henley, who is one of the founding members of the Eagles and who provided the singing voice for Tennessee. The female companion he says it to is Bonnie Raitt, who provided the voice for Trixie. See more »
After Beary and Henry get into the bus to go get the band, there is a shot of Beary hanging out the window of the side of the bus. In the shot, the bus is clean, but this is before the bus goes through the car wash. The next outside shot of the bus shows it dirty. See more »
"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!
