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.

If you've seen the trailer, you've already seen the best parts of this movie. Honestly. "Beary Barrington" is a bear who talks and lives with a human family and realizes one day that he's different. So he runs away, hoping to find his purpose in life by reuniting a now defunct singing bear band. After each encounter we are treated to a cheesy musical number, and some silly slapstick comedy. My five year old son thought the movie was "okay", but from an adult point of view, the characters (especially the old bears) are dull, the songs ridiculous, and the humor flat. Even the cameo appearances by such stars as Elton John, Don Henley and Bonnie Raitt can't add spark to this lifeless and predictable children's film.
