3D Yogi’s no Boo Boo
YOGI BEAR 3D (U)
Tom Cavanagh, Anna Faris, TJ Miller, Andrew Daly, Nathan Corddry and the voices of Dan Aykroyd, Justin Timberlake.
CREATED by Hanna-Barbera, Yogi Bear gained a cult following in the 1960s, pursuing his beloved “pic-a-nic baskets” in the fictional Jellystone Park, accompanied by dutiful sidekick Boo Boo. The character’s perseverance in the face of disaster and oft-repeated catchphrases (“I’m smarter than the average bear!”) ensured that Yogi entertained successive generations of children. Now Hollywood has given Yogi and Boo Boo a 21st century makeover in eye-popping 3D. Live action and the digital effects don’t always gel convincingly in Eric Brevig’s film, and the plot is noticeably stretched to fill the running time. However, Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake offer cheerful impersonations of the furry heroes that don’t tarnish fond memories of the cartoon duo. FAMILY WATCH: No Swearing, No Sex, Violence.
