Summary: When the greedy mayor (Andrew Daly) decides to close Jellystone Park to cash in by selling the land, Yogi Bear (voiced by Dan Aykroyd) and his sidekick Boo-Boo (voiced by Justin Timberlake) must team with their adversary, Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh), to save their home. Meanwhile, filmmaker Rachel (Anna Faris) follows Yogi and captures his antics.
Revoltingly unfunny in every way. Dan Aykroyds Yogi voice is just a flat impression with different words again and again with the same inflection and same cadence every time. Everything about this film is terrible and let us not even get into the philosophical and ethical dilemma of a talking fucking bear and why nobody is phased by it. The fact that I even started thinking about that just shows how far my mind wandered from the nothing that was the story.
Only a handful of brief moments in Yogi Bear evoke the spirit and tone of old Hanna/Barbera cartoons that such family-targeted film adaptations should recapture. Otherwise, Brevig's picture is woefully unfunny, smugly condescending and lamentably simple-minded. It's also perhaps the most terribly shot mainstream movie of the past 5 years.
As far as I remember Timberlake does sound like Boo-Boo though I've never liked Yogi Bear cartoons. As a kid movie this version was under any range. And it took too much time before action to keep kids interested of. Unless they drop the level of audience low... very, very low.
Not too bad for kids, and I found myself chuckling a couple of times, but they could have come up with a better story for such a great cartoon with some history. Anna Faris is wasted and she could have done something that is so much better than this.
