When I was younger I was never a massive Yogi Bear fan, but knew the basics. Yogi lives in the park and steals pic-a-nics all the time.
So I approached the film kinds fresh. It wasn’t the greatest. I like what they did with the story, a simple wood-under-threat storyline and naturally Yogi can do something about it. The voice acting by Dan Aykroyd & Justin Timberlake was spot on however. But apart from that, the whole story lacked a certain pizzazz. It’s very much aimed at the child audience and whilst kids will love the antics, you can’t help feel that older fans of the original series might be disappointed and feel a little underwhelmed by this big screen adaptation.
