    Good movie. Very funny and cute movie. This movie will teach you some things about bears, my favorite animal. Bears like to eat much good food and lay around all day. A bear's life is the life for me.

    The Disneynature movies shouldn't be mistaken for traditional documentary, but if they act as a gateway drug for young children to learn more about the animal kingdom — and to open themselves up to more informative non-fiction cinema — then the films are serving a real purpose.

    Sincere and unexpectedly good.

    The new Disneynature film lacks the fortuitous plot turns found in previous Disney documentaries, resulting in some awkward (and possibly deceptive) editing. But the movie has a strong protagonist and impressive footage, and the educational core is unsullied.
