Brother Bear is a movie that is so close to being great that it's almost ridiculous. Had there been just a few changes made to the story, characters and dialogue, it would've been a really moving and timeless classic. As it stands though, this is interesting and beautiful to look...

Probably not up there with the best of Disney's full length features, but enjoyable all the same. Another hidden message for kids and a little adventure too.
