I’ve never read the books and didn’t see the first film. I decided to see this sequel because of the strong reviews. It follows the little bear who lives in London with his human family, as he takes on odd jobs to buy a special present. Unfortunately, a pompous actor (Hugh Grant relishing the opportunity to chew the scenery) becomes the villain and takes the story in a dark direction (see the accompanying photo for a hint). The film unfolds with a chipper attitude and a cast of top English talent. There are flights of fantasy and a sweet earnestness that makes it appealing. It’s not an exceptional movie (damn reviewers), but it’s likable charms will appeal to family audiences looking for a traditional, subdued approach to children’s stories.
