I Have Seen the Devil, and His Name is Yogi Bear


I am extremely proud to say that I’ve never seen the “Alvin and the Chipmunks” or the “Garfield” movies, though I did somehow manage to work my way through “Furry Vengeance” without succumbing to violent fits of dementia brought on by hammy acting and inexcusably poor computer generated animals. However, despite my ability to consume just about anything and everything related to cinema, I seriously doubt my brain could handle the horror that is “Yogi Bear”. Sure, Dan Aykroyd voices the titular animal with the serious addiction to picnic baskets, but even he can’t persuade me into believing this project is anything but a serious mistake. If the potential dance sequence doesn’t convince you otherwise, the presence of Tom Cavanagh will more than likely seal the proverbial deal. Care to test your threshold for banality? Watch the trailer below.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    Hated the first one, this didn’t help. I have barely made it through “Alvin and the Chipmunks,” (thanks to my daughter) and have successfully avoided “The Squekquel.” Scratched my head when “Marmaduke” came out. Can someone please tell me why the dog talked (with one of the most annoying actors voicing him no less) when he didn’t in the comic strip? This just looks horrid though. And is it me or is Dan Aykroyd channeling Rodney Dangerfield.
