The ’60s cartoon bear goes big screen, attempting to save his beloved Jellystone Park from being sold to loggers.
Any potential retro-charm is quickly rubbed out by creepy CGI, a tired reality-TV conceit and failure to grasp that Yogi’s appeal lies in his delivery and quick wit, not eye-stabbing 3D gimmicks or life-like depictions of picnic-basket heists.
Still, it’s surprisingly free of bears-pooping-in-the-woods gags, while the vocal turns (Dan Aykroyd’s Yogi, Justin Timberlake’s dead-on Boo Boo) are at least lively.
But that’s no reason to actually see it, unless you’re five.
