Yogi Bear The Movie

13 Dec

You all must have been very bad this year. Our Christmas present from Warner Bros. is a 3D installment of one of the most boring cartoon characters ever. Yogi Bear hits theatres December 17th, just in time for us to curse God right before his son’s birthday.

Yogi is a mix of live action and animation. Who Framed Roger Rabbit? it aint. Starring Tom Cavanagh , Anna Faris, Dan Aykroyd as “Yogi” and Justin Timberlake as “Boo Boo”, this movie is one that doesn’t seem to be made for kids. Sure it’s animated and filled with prat falls, but take a look at the cast. Tom Cavanagh was the quirky Ed on NBC and the quirky brother of Dr. John Dorian on Scrubs…on NBC. Anna Faris attained notoriety in Scary Movie. The last time Dan Aykroyd was relevant to kids was when he starred as “Ray Stantz” in Ghostbusters. I’m sure kids know who Justin Timberlake is, but it’s probably not from his days in *NSYNC (it’s hilarious when my nephew sings that holiday song we all love, “Dick in a Box”). The last piece of evidence that this movie was made for reminiscing older people is the TV Guide. Check it. Is Yogi Bear the cartoon on any channel? I don’t know one kid who prefers Yogi to “Yu-Gi-Oh!”

I always thought Yogi’s antics and plans to ruin pick-a-nics were blah. Ranger Smith caught Yogi and Boo Boo again…oh that Yogi. Oh look, a bear using a magnet to steal a lunch box. There he is again, this time it’s a fishing rod, or maybe he bribed some ants to walk away with the watermelon, and now he’s being tested for diabetes…oh, wait…that was the “very special episode of Yogi.”

So, Will It Suck?

….Yup. Kids aren’t impressed with Yogi. They won’t appreciate Dan Aykroyd. Justin Timberlake’s voice is unrecognizable as Boo Boo and Anna Faris is a straight to DVD Scooby Doo feature away from being out of the business all together. I do think the grown-ups will like Cavanagh. He kinda seems perfect for Ranger Smith. But, for all those who prefer the darker days of Yogi when he busted that miners’ strike or told his drunk father what he really thought, check out the video below for the alternate ending to this weekend’s release.

    As a huge Yogi Bear fan, I did not enjoy this movie at all. Had its moments but very weak, pity. It sucked.

      Anything with Anna Faris sucks. If she so good, why doesn’t she do anything beside making a fool out of herself? Simple, she can’t do good. Comedy is not the only thing out there.
