Talk about an underrated Disney film- I mean, it's not on the same level as The Lion King or anything like that, but it's still a reasonably good movie with likable characters and strong music.

Oh brother, this movie is 'bear'ly watchable. The setup for the story seemed different, but after the main character turned into a bear I completely lost interest. Cue the annoyingly unfunny side characters and little kid and the by-the-numbers pastiche of Disney 101 and you have a flick that plays out like a direct-to-DVD Disney sequel.

Clearly made for kids and feels, sometimes, like an after-school special with its preachy pro-nature message (no arguments with the message, just the sappy way in which it is presented.) Some fun moments from the wise-cracking moose, but unremarkable animation and characters make this strictly a vehicle for kids to enjoy.

Way More Fun Than You'd Think!

The movie starts out with a young Indian named Kenai (voiced by Joaquin Phoenix) about to go through the ceremony with his tribe in which he will receive his totem, and become a man. He receives the totem of love, which is a source of humiliation to him, because his brothers received totems of guidance and wisdom - more manly things.

Now with young cub Koda who lost his mother, Kenai will learn lessons about tolerance, acceptance and understanding of others.

The music by Phil Collins and Tina Turner is admirable and the moose brothers, played by those "M...

Review - Brother Bear (2003)

After Sitka (D.B. Sweeney) died saving his brothers’ lives from a bear, Kenai (Joaquin Phoenix) decided to get revenge for his sibling’s death. Through this, the spirits of the world transformed him into a bear. Now he must learn about love and brotherhood in “Brother Bear.”

I remember seeing this in theaters and not liking it too much, but I really enjoyed it the second time around. There’s a really good story here that goes along with the spirit of Disney. The characters are also very lovable and understandable. You also have people like Phoenix and Rick Moranis (as Rutt) doing voices, so it’s entertaining at the least.

I did have a little problem with acting at first, but it picked up once Sweeney was out of the picture. He sounded like he should have been doing a video game voic...
