Yogi Bear (Dan Aykroyd) and his pal Boo Boo (Justin Timberlake) will stop at nothing to create the perfect picnic basket-stealing device, from a picnic table launching mechanism to the flying Basket Nabber 2000. Yogi’s schemes are doing nothing to help attract visitors to Jellystone Park, and as a result the park hasn’t made its budget in 10 years.
The Mayor’s Plans
When the corrupt and power-hungry Mayor Brown learns that his city has gone bankrupt, he realizes that his chances of becoming governor are going down the drain. He needs to come up with a money-making scheme soon, so he turns to the only remaining undeveloped land left in the city—Jellystone Park. Selling the logging rights will make him some major dough.
Yogi Strikes Out
When Mayor Brown informs Ranger Smith of his decision, the ranger asks for one week to meet their quarterly quota in order to save the park. He holds a 100 year anniversary celebration hoping to make money on season passes. But when Yogi’s stunts bring danger to the visitors, Ranger Smith’s prospects are crushed.
When all hope seems lost, a woman doing a nature documentary at the park discovers something that could save the park. If only the Mayor would listen...and abide by the law.

The Bottom Line
Yogi Bear is as corny as you would expect. But not in a bad way. Unlike most of the animated films in the last decade, this movie has more humor for kids than adults. But it’s still enjoyable for adults. It’s good, not great. So unless you’re keen on seeing the film in 3D, it might be worth waiting for the rental.
