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

Great & Entertaining Movie
31 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie it's great to have fun with your kids or without them!!! It's a funny comedy with great music and great characters... Of course nobody it's going to receive an Oscar for the movie's plot, but I found it very entertaining.

The Bears are really well done, and I respect the fact that in these days, full of kids' graphic animated movies, Disney put effort into one of these kind. The Bears are well done, and they move very smoothly.

The humor is present and gags are all over these movie. The Country Bears were supposed to be a true country legend band that broke up a decade before, and it's great to see the way they were in their glory day! Very funny as well. There are inner messages about stars that became legends and were lost, that are very enjoyable for the grown up people, if you like music.

And speaking of music the sound track it's great... Lots of stars and quality music are all over these movie. Expect to see some famous names cameos.

Overall, good music, good humor, cute bears, a good moment for relax.
