Yogi Bear

Rated 1.0

Yogi Bear (voice by Dan Aykroyd) and his pal Boo Boo (Justin Timberlake) try to save Jellystone Park from closing down. Here’s a finalist in the All-Time Unnecessary and Unwanted Movie Sweepstakes (does anyone under 40 even remember Yogi Bear?). For whatever reason, Warner Bros. has sprung for (apparently) several hundred thousand dollars and persuaded Tom Cavanagh and Anna Faris to play Yogi’s human friends, enticed perhaps by the offer of a working vacation to the New Zealand location (other roles are taken by nobodies resembling more familiar actors who had more sense than to be in this turkey). The result is 79 minutes of 3-D garbage, directed (poorly) by Eric Brevig and written (worse) by Jeffrey Ventimilia, Joshua Sternin and Brad Copeland. Theaters should keep the glasses and recycle the film.
