*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This is a documentary hosted by Brad Pitt about two orphaned bear cubs, Bart Jr. and Honeybump. It tells the story of how they came to live with bear trainer Doug Suess, and also tell us about Doug's life with and passion for bears, especially his most famous bear "Bart the Bear", star of many movies such as "Legends of the Fall" and "The Bear".We also get to see the bears work on several movie sets, and Brad Pitt gets a nice wet kiss from one of the bears ( note: he looks terrified!).

If you get a chance to watch this please do, it is a wonderfully put together production, and it is quite heart warming. However be warned-you will require a box of tissue!
