I'll usually just flip right by a movie when I see that it's "Made-For-TV". But this one kept my interest from start to finish. I had to see how the star (the grizzly bear) was going to end up. Everyone and everything was against her, except for the new boy in town, Josh (Riley Smith). He got the chance to help her through a job with the park rangers and within 30 seconds (and the internet) he figured out why the bear was so mean and set out to help her. The really unbelievable part of this movie was the interaction between Josh and a local girl, Terry (Courtney Peldon). She was sweet, charming and polite, but poor Josh took all his anger, about having to move to a strange town and the recent death of his father, out on her every time she came near him. The amount of abuse he laid on her, and the fact that she kept coming back for more was just plain too much to make that part of the movie anywhere near believable. I guess the writer, director, or someone in charge of the script hasn't got a clue about how real teenagers interact. That person needs to get out of the singles bars where rejection is a way of life and volunteer with the boy scouts, be a big brother or something to get back in touch with teenagers.
