Berenstain Bears Movie Won't Be as Thought-Provoking as it Sounds


If you were among those viewers displeased with Spike Jonze's smart, brooding and wholly original interpretation of Where the Wild Things Are, then Shawn Levy has announced just the film for you. Hollywood's resident Captain Trifle will produce a feature-length take of The Berenstain Bears in requisite live-action/CGI. Levy's approach: "I'd like the film to be un-ironic about its family connections but have a wry comedic sensibility that isn't oblivious to the fact that they're bears," he told USA Today. "The comedy comes from this bear family coexisting in a more recognizably real world." Take that, hipsters. [USA Today]

    So it's going to be The Brady Bunch Movie with bear suits.

    Inauspicious quote. But anything that insults hipsters, I can't lie...I am for it.

  • Emmett Grady says:

    So it's going to be stupid?

    It's actually Berenstein Bears, not Berenstain Bears.

    I loved these books as a kid!! I am disappointed though that they are dong live action/ CGI. I wish they could just do a cartoon. Look how well Shrek did and there wasn't any live action there!!! I don't understand this fasination in hollywood with turning what should be a cartoon fantasy into a "real life" live action movie... It doesn't work!
