This might be okay

It's hard to judge this as a movie because it's literally just a bunch of episodes of the show that were compiled into a movie. I'm still going to try to judge it as one. It starts with the Care Bears theme song and ends with the Care Bear credits. I have to admit that growing up, I was never a fan of "Care Bears". I might have seen a tiny bit when I was really little. Well, I've still seen every movie now. This really is no worse or better than any other Care Bears movie. Honestly, I thought there were some good parts. I thought the characters were represented pretty well.

I did kind of like Grumpy Bear, even though he quickly lost his grumpiness. What I didn't like was that the animation was just plain clumsy. This is like the fourth movie where they've reused that blonde girl with blue eyes design. I shouldn't think further into that. Even the villain is just cut and paste from the previous movie. Still, the film's entirely harmless. If you have kids who are fans of the Care Bears, then I suggest you watch this with them. If not, it's pretty forgettable. **
