The Oscar-nominated animated feature Brother Bear comes to DVD with this feature-packed two-disc set from Disney. The film is presented in a pair of transfers. The widescreen 2.35:1 transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of the film, while a second image is presented in a 1.66:1 aspect ratio. The supplemental materials strike a nice balance between providing fun stuff for kids and more substantive filmmaking information for movie lovers. A fairly involved making-of documentary, deleted scenes, interactive games, and a music video for the Phil Collins song "Look Through My Eyes," are all fine, but the best part of the disc is the commentary delivered by Rutt and Tuke, the moose in the film voiced by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas. They are very entertaining and will bring a smile to the viewer's face regardless of age. This is a solid release from Disney DVD.
Three viewing options: Family-friendly aspect ratio (1.66:1) enhanced for 16 x 9 televisions; original theatrical aspect ratio (2.35:1) enhanced for 16 x 9 televisions; "Rutt & Tuke's Commentary" -- watch along with the hilarious moose from the film

There are a lot of ideas that change throughout the movie.
It is a real way of life movie. As we go through life our ideals change as it does in this movie.
Good teaching tool for adults and children. Yet it keeps all interested in the movie.
