It's a different can of worms when the reviewer in question is decidedly not in the target demographic for a film. Nobody wants to come with you to watch the movie (even when you offer to pay them to come), so you trudge alone to a matinee screening and reluctantly hand the ticket seller your hard-earned $5. When you enter the theater, you are greeted by the overpowering smell of buttered popcorn and Fruit Roll-Ups. Everybody is either twice your age or a quarter of it. On the plus side, the boys are cuter ... but they don't know how to read. With that being said, even my sticky-fingered theater brethren didn't laugh once during this live action version of Yogi Bear. And why is live action again? Why does Anna Faris continue on doing this to herself?

I'm not going to claim that this destroyed my childhood. Mostly because I've always hated Yogi Bear. He's a terrible character. He's stupid, arrogant, and very selfish. He has, and never will have, any redeeming features. All he does is infuriate those around him. The film in general is also an abomination. Kids films don't have to be smart or emotional, just entertaining. This film is stuck in a comedic blackhole. Jokes about farts and poo! HAHA! Bears dancing to Sir-Mix-A-Lot? Really? That song is still funny? Wasn't it overused in Friends and Shrek years ago? Did Yogi Bear EVER dance? The plot is typical, but also adds pointless 3D effects. This is also probably why the film is unbearably bright. Watching it in 2D is even more painful. Yogi and BooBoo just don't fit in with their surroundings. They didn't have to look real. But their interactions with the real world did, like Who Framed Roger Rabbit?! The actors don't even look like they know how to hug thin air. A big problem in such a movie. This is a miss on so many levels.
