One of the most heartwarming family adventures ever, THE COUNTRY BEARS is packed with hilarious comedy, fantastic fun, and foot-stomping music for the whole family. For Beary Barrington, The Country Bears' young #1 fan, fitting in with his all-too-human family is proving im-paws-ible. When he runs away to find Country Bear Hall and his heroes, he discovers the venue that made them famous is near foreclosure. Beary hightails it over the river and through the woods to get the Bears in the Band back together for an all-out reunion concert to save Country Bear Hall. And on the way to find his place in the world, Beary learns that true families are made up of those people who love you the most!

Critics Consensus: Despite all the celebrities on hand, this spin-off from a theme park attraction still feels tired and hokey.

A dumb story about a bear adopted by humans.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that although this movie is rated G and has none of the usual parental concerns, they should be sensitive to some of the issues in the movie that may trouble children. Beary runs away, and his parents are frantic about his safety, but he doesn't let them know where he is and doesn't seem to miss them for most of the movie. Beary's human parents don't tell him the truth about his adoption. He's told about his origins very cruelly by his jealous brother. Some parents will regret having their children see a character "play" music on his armpit if it sparks some attempts at imitation.
