Everyone's favorite pic-a-nic basket-stealing bear comes to the big screen in "Yogi Bear," a new adventure, filmed in 3D, that combines live action with computer animation. Dan Aykroyd stars as the voice of Yogi, Jellystone Park's notorious troublemaker, and Justin Timberlake as the voice of Boo Boo, Yogi's faithful pal and co-conspirator in his never-ending schemes to separate park visitors from their lunches.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Fond memories of Yogi cartoons may get you some way through this big-screen version - but the nostalgia soon wears off."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"This being the highly advanced 21st century, simple animation won't do, so we must suffer through mediocre, lifeless computer-generated animation of this treasured twosome."
‑ Jake Coyle, Associated Press
"A bland but innocuous film that fails to take advantage of its two likable leading characters."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"Smarter than your average family movie? Unfortunately not."
‑ Simon Reynolds, Digital Spy
"Adult chaperone who drew the short straw? You can settle in for an 82 minute nap. Sounds good, right?"
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"You've seen this movie before, when it was called Alvin and the Chipmunks, but the filmmakers are hoping that your kids don't remember."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Taking the kids to a matinee of Yogi Bear in 3-D is no picnic."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"It's a terrible, dumb, unimaginative film that really isn't worth the price of a cinema ticket even with ... the excellent Road Runner short that comes before it."
‑ Matt Looker, TheShiznit.co.uk
"An all out attack on the eyes and ears..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Millions of adults grew up watching Yogi Bear cartoons, but instead of playing to those memories, it does as little as possible to technically qualify as a "Yogi Bear movie.""
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"The movie is the opposite of the cartoons: Everyone's body is in motion, but nobody is using his head."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"A bland 21st-century family comedy without a single moment that captures the wit, energy or sophistication of the original, which by now dates back more than 50 years."
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"One of the worst family films I've seen since another animated adaptation: Garfield. Talking bears aside, the film lacks logic, energy and, most of all, fun."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"full review at Movies for the Masses"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"Youngsters might enjoy the movie's colorful locales, lovable if doltish bears, and intermittent slapstick comedy."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
