Actually, it was 2 of the past 3 holiday seasons that Hollywood gave us Alvin and the Chipmunks.  It might get a lot of families to see it, but if they know better, they will probably just see Tron: Legacy instead.  As of right now, I don't think it is favored to win any Razzies, but there is a small chance it will get nominated.  Here are the categories it is eligible for and the favorites in each of them:
 
Worst Picture
Favorites: The Last Airbender, Vampires Suck
 
Worst Actor (Dan Aykroyd)
Favorite: Ashton Kutcher in Killers and Valentine's Day
 
Worst Director (Eric Brevig)
Favorite: M Night Shyamalan for The Last Airbender
 
Worst Screenplay (Written by Brad Copeland, Joshua Sternin, and Jeffrey Ventimilia; based on the cartoons by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera)
Favorite: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (written by Melissa Rosenberg; based on the novel by Stephanie Meyer)
 
Worst Screen Couple (Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake)
Favorite: Kristen Stewart and either Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
 
Worst Supporting Actor (Justin Timberlake, Tom Cavanagh)
Favorites: Dev Patel in The Last Airbender, Jackson Rathbone in The Last Airbender and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
 
Worst Supporting Actress (Anna Faris)
Favorite: Megan Fox in Jonah Hex
 
Worst Prequel, Remake, Ripoff or Sequel (a ripoff of a cartoon series by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera)
Favorite: Vampires Suck (a ripoff of everything it rips off)
 
Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D
Top 6: Clash of the Titans (not originally filmed in 3-D), The Last Airbender (also not originally filmed in 3-D), My Soul to Take (worst wide-release 3-D box office gross), The Nutcracker (made only 0.2% of its budget back), Resident Evil Afterlife (randomly throwing weapons at the camera), Saw VII (It was dumb even without the 3-D)

What kind of talk is that?  Who's gonna see this film before they fill out the Razzie nominating ballot?  We might be preoccupied working or attending bowl games or watching Tron: Legacy and True Grit (or Razzie contenders Little Fockers and Gulliver's Travels).  And what are we going to think if we compare this film to Vampires Suck, The Last Airbender, Killers, and Grown-Ups?  Where will it rank among those and the other awful films of the past year?

You don't have kids, do you, Miguel?  Every parent not yet punished by the horrible Alvin & the Chickmumps and Alvin & the Chickmumps Makes You Squeak-uel will be hauled into seeing Yogi Bear, making it yet another awful, eye-gouging remake scoring well over $100 million at the box office.  At some point, the older population needs to point these so-called filmmakers at the Warner Brothers cartoons (as in Bug Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, etc), which were directed at the adults, and insist these so-called filmmakers don't forget about us adults as well.
 
As for comparing it to Vampires Suck, The Last Airbender, and may I add Skyline, if the A&tC movies are any indication, Yogi Bear will fit right in.  Sad to say, but Grown-Ups actually looks good compared to those other movies (but I really shouldn't use the word "good" in the same sentence as Grown-Ups).  Killers just isn't bad enough.

No,dude. YOGI is a remake, not a rip-off.Although, the intentions on making either are the same.

The first Alvin movie was stuck behind I Am Legend and the second one was stuck behind Avatar.  Tron: Legacy is also rated PG, therefore Yogi Bear is not a shoo-in to top the box office charts this weekend.  Tron: Legacy is also more highly anticipated by moviegoers than Yogi Bear.  Alvin's colossal gross was not fueled by high-grossing weekends, but by being released at a time when people have more free time than they normally would.  Yogi Bear is taking advantage of this trend, but it may be stuck behind Tron: Legacy, True Grit, and any other big movies in the near future on the charts.

So basically we're stuck choosing between a remake and a sequel?! At least TRON:LEGACY's reviews are almost as good as the first one, while YOGI already has bad word-of-mouth...

I'm recommending Tron: Legacy because it looks more appealing than its competitors.  How Do You Know is also out this week, but I don't know how critics are taking that one.  As for Yogi Bear, the character is smarter than the average bear, but reviews say the movie is not.
 
There is one question that hasn't been answered: How many of us are going to see Yogi Bear before we fill out the Razzie nominating ballots?  That should be a factor in determining whether or not it gets nominated and how many nominations it gets.

Mr. Ranger isn't The critics aren't gonna like this, Yogi!

First we had the Flintstones (2 films), then Scooby Doo (2 films, and two made-for-TV films), and now Yogi (hopefully only one).

Incidentally, the Scooby films seemed to have a more positive reception from viewers (not the crix, of course!) and may have only made the mistake of being live action...I don't know that much, though.  Maybe it had to do with the first one's take on Scrappy or something.

Anyway, the nightmare has just begun.  In 2011, we see these blue people, but it's not Avatar 2, it's the Smurfs!  Then in 2012, meet George Jetson, his boy Elroy, daughter Judy, Jane his wife...you get the idea, a Jetsons movie!

Looks like they are going to milk the Hanna-Barbara characters for all they're worth.  I would not be surprised to see Huckleberry Hound, Snagglepuss, Galaxy Trio, Birdman, etc. get this treatment.  Once this is done, they will probably go to http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/the-mike-toole-show/2010-12-05 - anime .

No, it'll just royally piss people off as Hollywood continues to rape their childhood memories. I think I might add cartoon adaptations as the unofficial 5th movie horseman (or at least add "especially if it's based on a cartoon series, video game, or toyline" in the part about unwanted adaptations).

Actually, Miguel, it's called "you're in denial!" Hollywood has no original source material, so they are just going back in time and making movies of whatever was popular 20, 30, 40, or 50 years ago, hoping they can cash in on pre-existing audiences and fan bases. And those fan bases are disappointed time and time again because these movies aren't loyal to the source material and come across as something alien to what they remember original being like. But you just don't get it, do you?
 
By any chance, are you a spin doctor for a studio or something? That would explain your on-going defending of Hollywood's rapings of people's childhood memories.

In response to Miguel's post (see below):  

Point 1: Correct...the Mayans did not predict the end of the world. The year 2012 simply marks the end of one of their temporal cycles, and they never got around to creating another calendar.
 
Point 2: It is a bit of a stretch to contend that Nostradumbsh*t "predicted" anything. He wrote a number of long winded, virtually meaningless "quatrains" that are so vague and frankly open to interpretation that clever devotees have managed to apply them to just about everything that happens. There is also considerable evidence that when Nosty's predictions don't match expectations, his followers simply retranslate his work. I'm not aware of any specific predictions he ever made about the actual end of the world, but any reasonably intelligent study of his writings demonstrate that the guy basically did for bullsh*t what the Grand Canyon did for holes in the ground.

Busted!  Actually though, there is a rather interesting and close alliance between the scientific community and magicians. It is an alliance that has spawned numerous skeptic organizations, including the Committee for Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP). Scientists realized early on that we can be fooled as easily as the average guy on the street, but magicians are harder to fool. They can also spot how charlatans pull their gags easier too. Magicians are invaluable in paranormal investigations.

The great magician Houdini specialized in that.  I recall hearing that Arthur Conan Doyle, who was a spiritualist when he wasn't writing, would bring Houdini to mediums and such that Doyle believed were real, and Houdini busted every single one of them.

Funny you should mention magic and investigations, because there have been many cases in which police have brought in psychics to help them with unsolved mysteries, which would sometimes lead to the case being solved. But then you could then debate that like with the USA Network series "Psych", it could be that the so-called "psychic" just has a better eye for details and clues at the crime scene than the police do.

CSICOP has done extensive investigation into the claims that police departments have used psychics in their investigations. Psychics love to publicize the claim, but as far as I am aware, there isn't a single case in which the police have ultimately credited psychics with providing information that definitively led to a case being solved. Typically, psychics fail to provide any important information that hasn't already been made available to the public or that they could not have gathered from cold readings when discussing the case with investigating officers.

I really don't count Houdini as a magician. For that matter, I don't count any escape artist as a magician. Magicians do illusions using trick props and slight of hand. Escape artists deal with being able to not panic under pressure and slip their way out of locks an traps that could result in their death. Hence, David Blaine ... NOT a magician, or escape artist for that matter.

Far off topic as we may have drifted, Houdini actually did start out as a first rate stage magician on the Vaudeville circuit. His act more or less evolved into the escape artist thing that became his trademark.

Most police stations are pretty well crammed with files on unsolved cases. If the aid of psychics was of any benefit, that most likely wouldn't be the case. Not to mention that if psychic powers could actually be demonstrated, we'd all be spared those dehumanizing searches every time we go to the airport.

You do have a point about escape artists.  I would consider an escape artist to be more of a specialized magician, and in the end, many magicians incorporate some sort of escape trick into their routines.  In any case, the fact that Houdini consistently debunked and exposed those people who claimed to "call on the dead" is my main point.

Ever since the TV series way, way back, have they ever done the Green Hornet justice?  Batman came along and stole all of Green Hornet's thunder.  The trick in doing anything, TV series, TV movie or cinema movie, with the Green Hornet is distinguishing him from Batman.  Once you've made that distinction, as long as he's cool, you can then proceed with a good story, which is the other trick, which Hollywood has sucked at big time lately. . . .

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.

The Green Hornet decidedly gets the short end of the stick. The 60's TV series was actually pretty good as a counterpoint to the campy but reasonably entertaining Batman series. But I've always found the Hornet to be a rather intriguing character among the comic book heros...a good guy who poses as a villain to fight crime. The Black Beauty was way cool too. Besides, the Hornet was the Lone Ranger's great-nephew...how can that not be cool?

Oh, you got that right about how William Dozier really treated The Green Hornet. Dozier put his main effort into Batman and The Hornet was just his stepchild. Trendle and Dozier were always in disagreement about how the series would go. And I still remember the time that Green Hornet guested on Batman and the producers declared any fight between Burt Ward and Bruce Lee to be a draw. What a joke...

I agree, but let's face it.  Pulling this off is really tricky and requires genuine talent, and Hollywood doesn't put that kind of talent into much of anything lately.  I feel The Green Hornet is going to suck and tank, and that feeling comes from seeing nothing more than those stupid Burger King commercials.

And I still remember the time that Green Hornet guested on Batman and the producers declared any fight between Burt Ward and Bruce Lee to be a draw. What a joke...
The episode in which the Hornet and Kato appeared on Batman was the only 4 part episode of the old series. Most of the rest were two parts with the first episode airing on Wednesday nights, ending in a cliff hanger with the Caped Crusaders always in peril as the result of some retarded death trap. The conclusion would then air on Thursday night. The formula was: First, Batman pulls some miraculous mode of escape out of his @ss (or rather, utility belt).  Then the episode would climax with a big fight scene and the villain dispatched to Gotham prison. That particular facility must have had the worst escape record in the history of the universe, since the arch villain would inevitably return to haunt Gotham a few weeks later. During the series' final season, many of the episodes were only one part, as they attempted to cram in a lot of guest villains in order to boost sagging ratings.
 
The Hornet episode did include a couple of fights between the crime fighters. Sadly, we didn't get to see Bruce Lee clean Burt Ward's clock.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

I think the "homoerotic" poster is hilarious because it almost certainly unintentional.

Mind you, Yogi and Boo-Boo did sleep in the same bed in the old cartoon series, and Yogi need did have a real relationship with Cindy Bear. There were gay undertones before his movie existed.

It's different then Batman & Robin because I'm almost 100% sure that the hilariously inappropriate poster was unintentional. If it was intentional, then that poster's the most awesome thing ever.
 
Another key difference with Batman & Robin was that my eyes never exploded like Toht from the greatest movie ever while watching Yogi Bear.

Just look at Cracked.com. They have dozens of articles where they nit-pick movies from 30-40 years ago and point out undertones that no one thought about at the time. Of course, they're trying to be funny, so I guess they will try their hardest to find something to mock, no matter how unimportant it is.
