The Country Bears (2002)

Well guys, I did it. I finally did it. I found a live-action Disney movie that’s worse than Prom and Old Dogs! You don’t even need to read the rest of this review; this is the worst live-action Disney movie that I’ve ever seen for this blog so far!

“Oh well, no need to read further. Byeeeee!”

Sigh…I guess the review must go on. Released in 2002, The Country Bears was the second theatrically-released Disney film based on one of their park attractions.

But, it was the first one to be released through the Walt Disney Studios label itself! Also, Disney made a Tower of Terror TV movie back in the day, so this is technically the 3rd “based-on-a-park-attraction” Disney movie!

For many people, the Country Bear Jamboree attraction at the Disney parks, is somewhat of a cult classic. It’s a beloved must-see for many! I personally have only been on it once, despite having gone to Magic Kingdom multiple times in my life. I actually went on it last year, to be precise, and…I wasn’t a fan of it at all!

“Burn him!”

So when it came time for me to watch this movie, I was hoping it would be better than the attraction…sadly, it wasn’t. Without further ado, let’s take a look at The Country Bears.

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

You all know my feelings regarding these live-action remakes that Disney is doing of their animated films: I’m against them in principle, but if a film happens to be good, I’ll admit to it being so. Having said that, there were only 2 planned Disney remakes that didn’t irk me; I actually was somewhat open towards. One of them happened to be the subject of today’s review: The Jungle Book.

Directed by Jon Favreau, I felt that The Jungle Book was a book that had been adapted many times already, so I didn’t feel that this would be a remake of the 1967 animated film, per se. But, that doesn’t stop me from pointing out the differences between that film and this film. Without further ado, let’s take a look at this 2016 adaptation of The Jungle Book!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
