It's got endearing characters, lots of cute animals, and gorgeously animated scenery. The moose provide comic relief, and the moral of the story is a nice lesson about maturity. Just one caveat: the hunting scenes were a little too intense for the 27-month old who saw it with me, even though there is no actual gore. Oh, and the Phil Collins songs are skippable. I actually enjoyed this more than The Lion King, which to me seemed to be trying too hard to bring the adults in with a story that nevertheless remains kiddie-level. I also liked it better than Shrek, which just annoyed me with its precocious attempt at hipness. It was more heartwarming and aesthetically pleasing than Ice Age. It didn't have the clever charm of Lilo and Stitch, but I don't think kids really need that. There's plenty of time for cleverness and snark later in life. Let kids be kids - take them to see Brother Bear. Expand

Great tale of a boy learning the ways of the wild bear after he kills one, avenging his brother's death. He learns throughout the film about the bear's point of view, accompanied by a young bear named Koda.

When a film company has made so many iconic films, anything less than "spectacular" has to feel a bit disappointing. And despite this, "Brother Bear" is still an entertaining film.

And despite this, "Brother Bear" is still an entertaining film. It's funny, it's got some nice animation, some great characters, and some nice heart. It's not a new "classic" and it definitely feels more like a "2000's Disney film" as opposed to an amazing film, but it's good fun for kids and adults alike. Expand

Brother Bear is a fun bear movie that takes life changing events and uses them to make us feel sad. The important part about Brother Bear is every part in the movie.
