Don't expect wonders
4 August 2002 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I watched 'Gentle Ben' on the telly last night and was quite reasonably entertained. You need to rise above the movie's PC-eco-philosophical blandness and value the scenery, the acting of the boy, and the sheer marvel of being this close to a black bear. Don't expect wonders, but if you have nothing much else to do on a late weekday night, you might as well watch it.
