There’s barely a kind, friendly word from any leading critic about the big-screen version of Yogi Bear. Here are some of the descriptors: Mike Hale in the New York Times: “misbegotten;” Dan Kois in the Washington Post: “Uninspired studio product;” Ty Burr in the Boston Globe: “a frenetic, unfunny mix of action, romance, dud dialogue, and icky things popping out of the screen.” But Yogi does have at least one of the major newspaper critics on his side. Mick LaSalle in the San Francisco Chronicle writes: “This is a cute movie, a kid’s movie, and a rather good one. The computer-generated bears are adorable — it’s come to this: Computer creations can be adorable — and the movie packs a lot of amusing incidents into a nice, trim 79-minute package.”
