Well that looks way more entertaining than it probably has a right too. It also looks like "Inspired by" is in the loosest sense of the phrase.

This looks great... I'm sure there are Hollywood liberties being taken but I'd love to know how much of this spree is true because I don't remember this story at all as a kid.
To no surprise pretty much all of it is Hollywood liberties except the Bear did consume cocaine.

This totally paves the way for Cocaine Shark, right?

Variety did a big piece on the movie and Banks.

It is ridiculous how badly my kids want to see this movie.

They can handle - and really enjoy - movies with over-the-top thrills and/or gore played for laughs like Psycho Goreman, Evil Dead II, or Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. But those are all at home in a controlled environment where we can pause, mute, skip, and process in real time.

I'll see this first and make a judgment call for a theater outing.

I have my doubts, but wow, do I have my hopes!

It's the feelgood family movie of the year. Not since Scarface has a cocaine fueled outburst be so cherished.

Nope. That was a cocaine fueled mess of a movie.

Well, in reality the time between the cocaine being dropped from the plane and the bear being found dead next to said packets is open for speculation
Saw the red band in the theater yesterday and this looks like the Citizen Kane of coked out animal movies. Need to see this.

Might catch it at AMC afternoon. Premium price doesn't apply then. There's a Texas Roadhouse by there. I have a giftcard I've been waiting to use there.

I thought I had heard some positive buzz about this as the release date was approaching, but the fact that it's coming out tomorrow and there are no reviews on RT as of this moment is very concerning. That's almost always a bad sign

What are you hoping to see from reviews? The movie is called Cocaine Bear. You either want to see it based on the premise or you think it's stupid. I can't imagine reviews swaying anyone from either side.

That's exactly what I was hoping (and expecting) to hear!
Will probably have to wait until next weekend, but will definitely watch this.

I hope this film is as entertaining as Banks' excuses will be if it bombs.
