Some of "Brother Bear" feels unfinished, but there's enough emotional heft to carry its contrived and fairly predictable narrative.

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 likeable characters and strong music.
