Storyline

Based on an attraction at Disneyland, the Country Bear Jamboree, this movie is one in a long line of live action Disney family films. The movie is a satire of "Behind the Music" rock and 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. Written by Matt Dicker

Wonderful movie!!
5 March 2003 | by j-clowncubbardSee all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Its got comedy, drama, a love story, and GREAT music. Not only have the Henson puppeteers made the most realistic bears(watch the mouths forming the words), but the suit performers bring them to life so fantastically that I forgot they were suits. The film features good family values, as Beary finds out "Its the people who love you no matter what, .. thats your family" This Disney film is for any one who has a family with kids, or anyone who is just a kid at heart. The DVD has some great extra features including an on stage concert. Forget the negative comments and give the bears a chance!
