What Are the Reviews for Yogi Bear Movie?

“Yogi Bear‘s 3D effects and all-star voice cast are cold comfort for its aggressively mediocre screenplay.”
Common sense media gave Yogi Bear Movie only single star and said that –
“Dumber-than-average family comedy won’t even impress kids.”
IGN gave the movie 4 out of 10 rating and gave a statement that –
“Of course, Yogi Bear is meant as a kids movie. And one supposes that it works on that level (the little ones at the press screening I attended seemed mildly amused). But we learned long ago that kids movies can operate on more than one level, and that’s not something that director Eric Brevig (Journey to the Center of the Earth 3-D) or his screenwriters are interested in. The result is a movie that’s dumber than the average bear. Though at least it has a pee joke in it.”
