Brother Bear [Special Edition] [2 Discs] [DVD] [2003]

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.

Synopsis

Brother Bear
In the Disney-animated adventure Brother Bear, Joaquin Phoenix provides the voice of Kenai, a young Native American boy whose brother, Sitka (voice of D.B. Sweeney), is killed by a mother bear protecting her cubs. With revenge in mind, Kenai sets out into the woods only to find himself magically transformed into a bear himself. Seeing the world through the eyes of his prey, Kenai is forced to learn a lesson about nature and life. On a comic footnote: Brother Bear also features the voices of Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas as Rutt and Tuke, moose characters reminiscent of their beer-guzzling McKenzie brothers from SCTV and Strange Brew; because this is a family-oriented cartoon - and it would be inappropriate for the moose to quaff beer -- the two moose express a fondness for eating wheat hops instead. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
