Kenai longs to complete the rites of manhood, but after his older brother drowns in a tragedy involving a bear, he hunts down and kills the animal. Unhappy with this vengeance, the spirit world decides Kenai must live life as a bear himself.
Short, sweet, entertaining and mercifully low on the musical numbers (supplied by Phil Collins and Tina Turner), this is good, old-fashioned family fun. Though Brother Bear probably won't enjoy The Lion King's share of success.
