Actually, I have to admit, I'm a teenager too. A teenage BOY, mind you, but still a teenager. And yes, I'm going to vote this year.

Kato has been outshining Green Hornet for years. This is partly because in the original tv show, Kato was played by Bruce Lee, and yes, it's the same Bruce Lee we know and love.

I saw the trailer and was not the least bit impressed by it. The whole time I was thinking "Wow, Seth Rogan isn't even trying any more. He's not acting, he's just being Seth Rogan as Seth Rogan in a Green Hornet outfit. When Kato, the sidekick, is outshining the hero, it's not a good thing.
Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

Yes, the original Kato overshadowed Green Hornet because he was played by action movie legend, Bruce Lee. However, that's not the case with this movie. Here, Kato is outshining Green Hornet because Kato is coming across as the smarter and more capable crime fighter of the two, while Green Hornet ... or should I say, Seth Rogan in a Green Hornet costume ... comes across as any John Q. Public guy who has no clue what he is doing and ends up making a fool of himself. It's almost like a remake of "Kick Ass", only with a lead character who is better known in pop culture.

And speaking of bad animated features, here's another one:
 
 
It just goes to show even Europe has its share of bad movies.
You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

One time, when we went to rent a game, my brother rented the X360 game, Naughty Bear, a game that got bad reviews from critics. My brother said the game looked 'Decent.' But when he played the game, he said it was terrible. He says he doesn't trust critics at all.

I'm surprised no one mentioned the Yogi Bear parody ending, a la The Godfather.

A point that has been somewhat missed above is that Bruce Lee was still comparatively unknown, at least to American audiences, at the time the old GH series aired. He was great on the show, but I'm not sure it would be fair to say that he blew Van Williams off the screen. I just looked this up too...The old series only lasted 26 episodes, which means that the Hornet and Kato were almost as well known for their appearance on Batman as for their own series. These days, since the old GH series isn't in syndication anywhere, they are probably better known for that appearance.

I just finished watching this. It's pretty bad, but not bad enough for a Worst Picture spot on the nominating ballot. All the other spots on the nominating ballot? Absolutely justified! Well, now to watch Birdemic.

That ending pretty much sums up what Hollywood has been doing to the childhood memories of anyone who grew up watching these beloved animated series, only to see them being ruined on the big screen.

I gave it a 5/10. It was okay, more on par with the first Alvin and the Chimpmunks! Although my Mother who's a big fan of Yogi Bear enjoyed it emensly!

What are people's thoughts on how this movie,regardless if you like it or not,pays respect to the cartoon?Dan Aykroyd and the director stated they intended to make YOGI's voice different on purpose,and I remember him being in serious consideration.Although the only good not bad performance here is Tom Cavanagh,he's clearly miscast.

Time to rip into a picnic basket full of sh*t!
 
The good:
 
Justin Timberlake: Timberlake sounds a lot like Boo-Boo, unlike Aykroyd, who sounds nothing like Yogi. May seem small, but you gotta appreciate the small things.
 
Ranger Smith's new park: This is one of the two parts that actually made me laugh. To explain; after he's fired from Jellystone Park, Smith's new park area is improbably small. May seem little, but you gotta appreciate the little things. The other part that made me laugh was...
 
The falling scene: To explain; Yogi, Boo-Boo, Smith, and Rachel Johnson (Anna Faris) drift down a waterfall and land safely in a tree-branch. The funny park is that Yogi doesn't seem to realize that he's safe until they tell him. May seem miniscule, but you gotta appreciate the miniscule things.
 
The bad:
 
Dan Aykroyd: As I mentioned above, he sounds nothing like Yogi. Now, if what Vits said is true, than they did this on purpose. But, if they were deliberately doing this, why cast Timberlake, who sounds exactly like Boo-Boo?
 
Anna Faris: The usually talented Faris fumbles in this. Although, maybe it's just the rating: the movies that I've liked her in (Scary Movie 1 and only 1, Observe & Report, etc.) were all R-rated. Maybe, she needs to be unleashed to work.
 
Tom Cavanagh: Vits was right about him being miscast. Watching his scenes could cause a coma in less-seasoned viewers.
 
The ugly:
 
The script: Take every crappy children's film cliche and you've got your Yogi Bear scipt. Dumb pratfalls, talking animals, needless explosions, posters that feature sodomy*, the usual.
 
The CGI: This is some Alvin And The Chipmunks sh*t right here. It's down-right disturbing in places. Expecially...
 
That f*cking turtle: The turtle is exceptionally creepy. Even worse, he's a plot-point: apparently, his weird eyes will make the government protect the park because it's endangered. While that does seem plausible, this leaves a major plot hole: no one seems to care that there's two bears talking! There's one scene, where they ask a guy for his shopping cart and he says: "Do you got chocolate?" instead of "Holy f*cking sh*t, a talking bear!" or "Man, I gotta stop doing reefer!"
 
Well, that's a crappy CGI version of a childhood chestnut. Grade: C
 
Next-up: How The Grinch Stole Christmas!

What are your thoughts on the so-called homoerotic poster?
