    One of my favorite childhood movies. I still love it for nostalgic reasons when I watch it. I honestly still find myself singing the songs from it at work. Country Bears left a big impression on me no matter how dumb it is.

    I LOVE this movie so much and was obsessed with it when I was a kid. I've always enjoyed it because I never once tried to take it seriously. It's extremely weird and when I was growing up, I didn't understand half of what was going on but that made it all the more entertaining. It was just so random and wacky. And also, the "OH NO! COUNTRY BEAR HALL HAS BEEN CRUSHED" moment has always been my favorite.

    Country Bears is one of my favorite movies. And I'm not ashamed to say that nostalgia plays a heavy factor. The first time I watched it, I was in a "bear phase" where I was reading books about bears and watching every movie and documentary about bears I could get my hands on. So, to my weird bear-loving 12-year-old self, The Country Bears was everything I could've asked for.

    I'm not sure if it's been mentioned in the comments, but Walken was a lion tamer. Like legitimately a circus lion tamer, him being in a cage with five large predators, and being the boss is in his resume. Hell that might be why he's more comfortable with the bear suits than he is with people.
