Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this broad comedy based on the Yogi Bear cartoons is age-appropriate for most elementary schoolers. There are some cartoonish, slapstick disasters (people falling, pies hitting Yogi in the face, people evacuating a campsite after fireworks start flying everywhere, etc.), and some insults (such as "stupid" and "loser"), but other than that, things are pretty tame. One couple does flirt and eventually shares a brief kiss, but there's no overt sexuality. The consumerism is also surprisingly mild, with only a few cars as product placements. Amid the silly humor, kids may learn how valuable state and national parks are and why it's fun to explore the outdoors with your family. Note: The 3-D version of the movie makes some parts feel more immediate/lifelike, but it doesn't have the "scary" factor that other 3-D flicks do.
Some flirting between Ranger Smith and Rachel, as well as one kiss at the end. Yogi makes a silly comment about how Ranger Smith should court Rachel by fighting off potential suitors and then urinating on her to "mark her" as his.
Cartoonish, slapsticky violence includes lots of messy picnic basket-nabbings, pratfalls, and minor crashes that are humorously disastrous but don't seem to really hurt (even though they should).
Insults like "dumb," "stupid," "loser," "heck," and the like.
Positive messages include taking care of state parks and discovering the fun that can be had with your family and friends in the outdoors.
Product placements aren't frequent, but a few scenes show a Lincoln Town Car and a Jeep, as well as a Ford pick-up truck.
