Yogi Bear | 2010 | PG | - 2.4.2

When a documentary filmmaker (Anna Faris) comes to Jellystone Park, she begins filming Yogi Bear (voiced by Dan Aykroyd) and his sidekick Boo-Boo (voiced by Justin Timberlake). However, when the park comes under threat, they must work with a ranger (Tom Cavanagh) to save their homes. Also with T.J. Mller, Nathan Corddry and Andrew Daly. Directed by Eric Brevig. [1:22]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A man and a woman lean in to kiss, the man hits the woman's forehead with his hat brim, he removes the hat and they kiss.
 We hear the lyrics to the first line of the song "Baby Got Back," which begins, "I like big butts and I can not lie..." as two cartoon bears dance around, shaking their behinds and a man and a woman watch and laugh.
 A cartoon bear asks a man if he wants him to kiss his forehead to feel for his temperature, and then jokes that the man has to "take his temperature differently" (presumably implying a rectal thermometer). A man jokingly tells a woman and two cartoon bears that he thinks of his bedroom as an uninhabitable wilderness. A man tells a woman he is uncomfortable around women. A man asks a woman to have dinner with him. A woman jokes with a man that people cannot scratch the behinds of humans like they do animals in order to make friends.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man, a woman and two cartoon bears ride an inflatable boat down a series of rapids, after the bear accidentally pulls the man and woman into the boat: they bounce on the rapids, one of the bears is seen being thrown around and into the air and they are all soaking wet; they approach a large waterfall and go over the edge (we hear the humans and bears shouting), they get stuck on an outreaching branch and climb to safety, unharmed.
 We see a video of a man grabbing a woman's purse; another man then punches and kicks the man to the ground. A woman grabs a man's tie, yanks his head down and shouts in his face, threatening him and saying, "I know rage." A woman jumps from a stage and lands on a man as she howls, holding up her hands like claws.
 A small scrap of flaming fabric floats onto a dock piled with unlit fireworks and a man and a woman that are standing on the dock jump into the water for safety as fireworks go off, exploding toward the beach where many men, women and children are sitting; people race for cover and a firework hits a popcorn stand (we see popcorn exploding on a man and he spits out a mouthful of popcorn) and a stage where a group of people escape just as the firework explodes (no one is harmed, but the stage is later seen collapsing after a man touches it lightly and another man is seen with soot on his face).
 A cartoon bear goes water skiing, catches the cape he is wearing on fire as he tries to juggle a flaming stick, he is thrown off the skis and the flaming stick and the bear soar over a small dock where a man and a woman are standing with piles of unlit fireworks; the man catches the flaming stick and the bear avoids the dock, crashing into the water.
 A cartoon bear shrieks, grabs his foot (we see smoke coming from his foot) and falls to the ground as another cartoon bear points out that the bear had stepped on a smoldering iron.
 A man on roller blades swerves off a sidewalk to avoid hitting a shopping cart, he rides into a construction site, we hear him shouting and moments later see him come out, covered in dust and marker tape, but presumably unharmed. A man riding a 4x4 golf cart races through a wooded area and is hit in the face with tree branches (we see him spitting out a mouthful of leaves), and he is thrown out of the 4x4 golf cart, but stands up, unharmed. A man attempts to push another man from behind the steering wheel of a 4x4 golf cart. A man and a woman jump out of the path of a cartoon bear driving a 4x4 golf cart. A man, using a staple gun, staples his finger (we do not see the staple enter his finger), and he yelps in pain as a woman watches. A wooden map stand collapses next to a man who has to side step to avoid being hit. A man accidentally knocks a woman in the forehead with the brim of his hat. A man startles another man, and he throws a handful of papers in the air.
 Two cartoon bears run alongside a train, one of the bears pitches the other into an open car, and smacks his head on a low-hanging sign as he runs along the trucks; he then smacks his head against the side of the door as the other bear pulls him up, and his behind smacks a picket fence for a few moments before pulling himself into the boxcar, unharmed.
 Two cartoon bears ride a glider off the edge of a cliff, it dives toward the ground, one of the bears leaps off, followed by the other with a bungee cord attached, and they bounce back into the glider, which loses its wings and dives towards the ground; one of the bears inflates a boat and they land in a river, unharmed.
 A cartoon bear jumps off a cliff, attached to a zip line, he zooms over a picnic table surrounded by people, he picks up their picnic basket, the line then catches on a tree branch and spins the bear around, the line snaps and the picnic basket and bear soar through the air; eventually the bear lands on the ground, face-down, but is unharmed. Two cartoon bears race down a street in a shopping cart.
 A cartoon bear stumbles off the roof of a building and crashes into a stand; he jokingly tells a man that he heard his spine crack, but moments later says he is unharmed. A cartoon bear throws a rock into a bush, we hear a man yelp in pain and see him walking out, rubbing his head; the bear denies throwing the rock.
 A cartoon bear handcuffs another cartoon bear to a small sapling after being instructed to do so, the bear panics and races around the tree, pulls at the handcuffs and tries chewing at his arm; he then pulls the handcuffs off the tree from the top and the tree snaps the bear in the face.
 A cartoon turtle is seen shooting his tongue out of his mouth and licking things on multiple occasions, including wrapping its tongue around a cartoon bear's eyes and using it as swing, licking a man's face, and grabbing a tree and pulling itself out of a car. A cartoon bear puts a grub in his mouth, we see it peeking out of one of his nostrils, he then plugs that nostril and snorts, and the grub flies out of his nose toward the audience as another cartoon bear watches. A cartoon bear spits soda, it sprays and we see it in 3-D, taking up the entire screen. A cartoon bear falls over and drags himself against a tree dramatically. A cartoon bear drops a large blanket over another cartoon bear, covering him. A cartoon bear juggles another cartoon bear on his feet, and he then drops him, unharmed. A cartoon bear is hit in the face with a pie, and he licks it off after the pie plate falls to the ground. A cartoon bear imagines himself as an astronaut floating through the air, until he clangs into a giant donut.
 A man shouts at another man. A man shouts at a group of two men, a woman, and two cartoon bears. A man tells another man that he had hung up "rabid squirrel" signs around a park. A man remarks to another man that a natural sinkhole is a great place for people to dispose of used mattresses. A man tells another man that a library had burned down. A cartoon bear tells a man to follow a woman, fighting any men that follow her and then urinate on her in order to attract her. A cartoon bear tells another cartoon bear that they should "hunt" for their food. A cartoon bear tells another cartoon bear that their days of being "beat up" are over. A man implies to a group of people and two cartoon bears that he is going to hide or kill a turtle. A cartoon bear runs for cover after another cartoon bear says a woman is going to "shoot them"; he then clarifies that she is going to shoot them with a camera. A woman tells a man that the document he is holding was written in "bird poop and spit" the man looks disgusted and puts it down. A man jokingly tells another man that he had saved him a seat by the Port-A-Potty. A cartoon bear tells a man that he thinks catching a fish with his paws is "unsanitary." A cartoon bear implies to a woman that another cartoon bear has smelly flatulence.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
