Eddie Murphy reprises his role as the man who can talk to the animals. This time around, the Doc has to get sideshow bear Archie (voiced by Steve Zahn) trained up to return to the woodland life. Why? So that Archie will get it on with wild bear Ava (Lisa Kudrow), a romance that would prevent a construction firm from being allowed to level the forest.
A plodding comedy that panders to the Free Willy-esque eco-friendly kids' market and fans of fart jokes alike. There is the odd decent gag (the God Beaver, indeed), though, and the disc's extras should keep adolescents amused.
