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.
