Hey, Boo-Boo! What’s in you picnic basket? Is it a half cgi, half live action Yogi Bear movie? No? It’s a steaming pile of your waste? How’s that different?
This latest Yogi Bear Movie tells the tale of a documentary filmmaker who goes to Jellystone Park, and runs across Yogi Bear, Boo-Boo, and Ranger Jones. No doubt the filmmaker’s lunch goes missing, and then the bear, being a heartless killing machine, eats him, all the while the Ranger watches and does nothing.

What’s Good About It?
Well, I do like Yogi Bear. And Dan Aykroyd was a Ghostbuster. And Anna Faris is adorable. Of course, it’s just her voice in the film.
What’s Bad About It?
Justin Timberlake is playing Boo-Boo. Oh, COME ON!!
Our Clever Prediction
Get me my gun. It’s bear hunting season. You know, it would be the most legendary film ever if Yogi did end up eating someone. Awesome prank of the day: halfway through the opening night screening, you switch the reels with the second half of The Edge. Enjoy children’s cries as Anthony Hopkins kills the bear.
But seriously, this is depressing. I’d rather see Little Fockers.
