The show `Brigsby Bear Adventures’ is a children’s television programme produced for an audience of one: James Pope. When the series abruptly ends, Pope’s life changes forever as he sets out to finish the storyline himself. To do that, he must learn how to cope with the realities of a new world that he knows nothing about.
I really wanted to like this movie because of its interesting premise, but it was prolonged to uninteresting levels, which made Brigsby Bear the very definition of a Saturday Night Live sketch stretched into a full length movie – probably not helped that most of the cast are SNL veterans.
I won’t be in any rush to watch this snooze-fest any time soon.
