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.

Brother Bear 3.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 18 reviews.

This is the first animated movie since The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast that had heart. You catch a glimmer of what made the original Disney movies great. Subject may be a little too scary and serious for young kids, but the movie is entertaining and enjoyable.

The lesson I learned from watching this movie is to ALWAYS PREVIEW first. My 3 1/2 year old has been playing very aggressively since watching this movie and incessantly asks why the boy killed the bear. Despite my answers, it is hard for him to understand why the brothers played so violently. I do not recommend this movie for young children.

It teaches you not to label animals as monsters and all that. While it doesn't match FernGully, it's a wonderful and meaningful story for all ages.

Very disappointing. After a bad experience bringing my child to the theater to see Lilo and Stitch my wife and I desided to start previewing all Disney videos. We are so glad we did this one. NOT FOR YOUNG CHILDREN!! It is violent and disgusting. The opening has two brothers fighting with one going to spit in the other's face. Goats yelling 'shut up' at their own echo. Moose based on the McKenzy brothers taking about eating 'hops'. A beer reference I would guess. Bears in love told to 'find a cave'. All in all Disney has tried to target too large an age range. I 'might' let a 12-14 year old see this on the edge of puberty, but not my 4 year old. The death of too many characters, leaving lots of room for children's questions about where the mama bear is, is just too in your face. The entire movie was like the horrible opening of Finding Nemo where the mother dies. This is not a feel good movie, has little to give it moral value, overall very disappointing. Why can't Disney learn to use the values they proport their characters are learning?

There are so few movies that appeal to both young, adult and older adult audiences, Disney has seized the genre. "Brother Bear" is a bittersweet story of coming of age and understanding. I enjoyed this movie and hope others will too.

This movie proves that humans and animals have to learn to understand each other. A must-see for animal lovers of all ages!!

'Brother Bear' is defiantly one of my favorite movies.The animation is so beautiful,it looks like a moving painting.The first act was so intense,I could almost feel my heart pounding.The best part though was when the Northern Lights transformed Kenai into a bear.It was pure magic!The actors really brought a lot of humor and heart into their characters.My favorite character was Koda because-unlike most recent animated youngsters-Koda's adoreable,loveable, innocent,and loyal.'Brother Bear' also has morals of judgement,loss,deep friendship(or brotherhood),and respect for life.The movie's only flaw is the music.The score is alright but most of the songs are really sappy.The film should have had better songs like Train's 'When I Look to the Sky',Avril Lavigne's 'Falling Down',or even Ashanti's rendition of 'Colors of the Wind'.But other than that,'Brother Bear' is an amazing movie. It's the best!

A hard movie to rate because it IS rather violent and makes references that are inapropriate for children, but that doesn't mean it doesn't also have it's good side. This movie teaches people that animals have feelings too. It is a wonderful lesson in empathy and respect for our fellow creatures. While I think Disney could have portrayed this theme in a better way, it doesn't deplete the fact that the moral IS THERE.

I grew up with the old Disney movies and they really inspired me throughout my life so far. Brother Bear was just as good as any of the oldies! Even though I am 16 if was as intertaining for me as if I was 5 again. I LOVED IT!!! I am buying copies for everyone I know.

I loved this movie so much I saw it 3 times in the theaters. But a few corrections to the movie review. The boy's name is spelled Kenai, not Kenoia. It's the boy's oldest brother who is slain by the mother bear, not his father. And who forgot to mention Koda, the glue that makes the movie so entertaining! It is a must for any parent of a child who loves animals!

Oh my god, this movie is the best animated movie (apart from Finding Nemo)! It's quite a sad movie, and a funny movie. Some reviewers are just CRAZY if they give this movie below 4-stars!

I cannot seem to get any service from B&N. One simple problem and I have had ha dto invest 8 emails and talked to 6 persons for 5.5 hoors minimum and still I cannot get a resolution. Maybe they read the reviews. They don't seem to care about the many books I have purchsed.
