Jellystone Park is celebrating its 100th anniversary, however it may be for the last time, because attendance is down and Mayor Brown wants to close the park and sell the land. If the park is closed, Yogi Bear and Boo Boo will lose their home. They join forces with Ranger Smith to save Jellystone from closing forever. Yogi must really prove in this endeavor that he is "smarter than the average bear".Written by

The malfunctioning window on the mayor's car switches from the right side to the left side, depending on which one he's trying to open. See more »
Yogi, that's the problem, all the thinking! Hey, you know what would be great? If you didn't think, if you could just be a regular bear; you know, sit in the woods minding his own business. But nope: you're different, you're SMART, and you have to spend your days being selfish and destructive while everyone else pays the price! I'm sure it's never been enough screwing up my life. But this time, you had to go and bring down this entire park. So tell me Yogi, how smart are you now?

This version of Yogi Bear had some amusing moments and not much else
Before I start this review, let me say this: I'm only partially familiar with this iconic bear having seen clips of his '60s cartoon series on various Hanna-Barbera retrospectives. I know during the mid '80s, USA Network had aired that series on its weekday afternoon lineup but I was a teenager by then and was temporarily losing interest in animation. I have seen him on both "Scooby Doo's Laugh-a-Lympics" and "Yogi's Space Race" but neither of those really showcased his character. So it's with that that I'm saying that some of the visual humor concerning Yogi and his little buddy Boo-Boo (voices of Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake) vary from amusing to a little more than that (never completely hilarious) but the subplots concerning Ranger Smith's romance with a female nature filmmaker (Tom Cavanaugh and Anna Faris) not to mention the Mayor's attempts to close Jellystone Park down are just partially wasted time-filler to provide excuses to drive those gags. There were also some punchlines I liked. So I don't think this version of this "smarter than the average bear" was that good. Still, it's harmless and should provide some enjoyment for the kiddies and some of the 3-D imagery was impressive...
