Plot: Brigsby Bear Adventures is a children's TV show produced for an audience of one: James. When the show abruptly ends, James's life changes forever, and he sets out to finish the story ... Runtime: 97 mins Release Date: 21 Sep 2017
I know that tastes can't change overnight, but it's a shame that audiences can't gravitate more to movies like this. Films like this are very rare, due to the fact that they'll hardly ever snag a major release by a large studio. Not to compare the two, but last year's release of Swiss Army Man was so unique and weird that I ate it up, and I felt the exact same way about this year's Brigsby Bear, which could very well end up being my absolute favorite film of the year. Unique films are a breath of fresh air, but not all of them are great, because the stories themselves <more>
may not explore enough to truly warrant award recognition. Although Brigsby Bear won't be winning any major awards this season, here is why it's a wonderful piece of cinema in my eyes.From first-time feature film writer Kyle Mooney and direct time feature film director Dave McCary, Brigsby Bear follows James Pope, a young man with a backstory that I can't reveal throughout this review, who has only ever seen one television show, called Brigsby Bear. When there aren't any more episodes coming out, he sets out on a mission with a few others to finish the show themselves. Becoming a filmmaker, gaining new friends, and learning many moving and comedic life lessons, this is a story worth showcasing to a very large audience. Unique, weird, and powerful all at once, this movie is elevated by a wonderfully sincere and comedic performance by Kyle Mooney as the lead.It's very rare that a comedian can be simultaneously funny and dramatic at the same time, making it truly seem that this is a real-world scenario unfolding on-screen. Not only did this story feel authentic to me, but it touched me on a personal level in terms of how there would definitely be people like this if certain situations were to present themselves to the world. Mooney is an actor that I believe many people should keep an eye on. Sure, his YouTube career is where he started and he's most known for his role on Saturday Night Live, but he's one of those rare performers that I believe will break out and become very famous in years to come.I truly believe that this is a flawless film for the story it's trying to convey. No film is perfect, but a film can be done perfectly when looked at a certain way, and I believe film lovers and even filmmakers themselves will be the ones who love this film the most. Original ideas are slim to none throughout mainstream media nowadays, but I dare you to come up with a premise like this throughout the past ten years. Yes, there are always similarities in every story, but when a film can surprise you even in its first act, it's something special.In the end, Brigsby Bear is a perfect little indie film for fans of cinema, well-written, well-directed, calmly scored with care, and wrapped in a nice little bow of uniqueness. I found myself wanting to rewatch this movie the second it concluded. Although short and to the point at a mere 97 minutes, there are many hidden elements that will elevate the movie even more upon second and third viewings. I'm sure the fact that it's so weird will turn some audiences away from fully enjoying it, but like I said, hardcore film lovers and filmmakers of any kind are truly the ones that will most likely love Brigsby Bear. This is easily one of the best films I've seen all year.
An instant Lonely Island classic (by jon-fougner-966-434081)
One of Brigsby Bear's opening title cards reads "Lonely Island Classics", in the style of the "Sony Pictures Classics" logo familiar to art house-goers. For good reason. Like its producers from the Lonely Island and the rest of its team, Brigsby Bear will be an instant classic for the right reason: its bigheartedness.A reward of being generous and brave is the opportunity to work with others who are, too. And so director Dave McCary, co-writer Kevin Costello, and creator-star Kyle Mooney—lifelong friends and colleagues—have assembled a crack team of their SNL <more>
collaborators, Upright Citizens Brigade founder Matt Walsh, ex-spy Claire Danes, Jedi Knight Mark Hamill, and of course The Lonely Island: Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone. Brigsby Bear is an entree-sized portion of soul food for creatives, but it's still a comedy. To that end, bold-faced names like straight man Beck Bennett and fuddy-duddy Walsh generously play to type.The film opens with the children's TV series Brigsby Bear. It features a Teddy Ruxpin- like bear, Brigsby, who travels the galaxy defending mankind while teaching dubious life lessons. James Pope Mooney is enthralled, but the show seems pitched at viewers 15 years his junior. We learn that James' passion for Brigsby isn't the only thing keeping him in his room. He lives with his parents in a desert bunker. Surfacing requires a gas mask. Like James' vast library of Brigsby VHS tapes, the family ritual of shaking hands before dinner seems an accommodation to an apocalypse.Not so. The FBI arrive, informing James that he was kidnapped at birth. Brigsby Bear has been the secret work of his captors, for his eyes only. As James is reintegrated into his birth family and society, he proves guileless but remarkably well-adapted. Why? Brigsby. And so James takes on the real world the only way he knows how: by continuing the legacy of Brigsby as a filmmaker. Doubters become converts. We're reminded that childlike curiosity is a feature, not a bug. And both films find room in their hearts for even the villain Hamill . So what are the Lonely Island classics, and what kinship have they with Brigsby Bear? Start with Stork Patrol https://youtu.be/rH9giCg3Nro or O.C. parody The 'Bu https://www.youtube.com/watch?v ODz2rUXpKWw , and you'll see that awkwardness has always been central to the trio's charm. When they graduated to SNL, they doubled down, and the likes of Rihanna https://www.youtube.com/watch?v 6_W_xLWtNa0 and Justin Timberlake https://www.youtube.com/watch?v JwCbbMgp3Lw joined them to check their cool at the door. So it's no surprise to hear Brigsby Bear's creators mention The Lonely Island as revered big sibs. They are fellow travelers, and we're lucky to come along for the ride.Water seeks its level, and the goodwill at the film's Sundance premiere spilled into the audience. IMDb founder Col Needham, a genuine movie lover happy to watch five a day, was often the first to laugh—giving the rest of the audience permission to do the same. During a post-screening Q&A, McCary was asked about a scene where James is asked who's on his t-shirt. It's Brigsby. "It's Brigsby," he replies. The camera pans down, revealing on the shirt: "IT'S BRIGSBY." The joke had killed. True to the film's esprit de corps, McCary called out his cousin to stand and get credit for it.And as for the Sony Pictures Classics spoof, Taccone seemed genuinely tickled by the size of the laugh it had garnered—and was quick to give credit to Schaffer. Thankfully, SPC was quicker to the draw than their trademark lawyers. They'll be releasing Brigsby Bear this summer.
I'm still teary from the last few minutes of the movie, did not think it would be this emotional. Kyle Mooney is so incredibly subtle with his acting that if you haven't seen much of his previous work, I'm positive most of the parts I was laughing out loud at, you would probably be wondering what was so funny. He is a fantastic character actor and he really pulls off a new subtle character in James, which is kind of an amalgamation of his most well known characters from his Youtube skit days, perhaps a little more naive than normal.There wasn't a weak actor in the entire film, <more>
but besides Mooney I would give special praise to Mark Hamill, although he only has a few scenes on camera, his presence is felt throughout the entire movie, through his voicing of Brigsby etc. I actually thought Hamill was better used here than in "The Last Jedi"..I'm not much of a critic, I can't summarise exactly what I loved about the movie very well. I will say though that the movie is superbly bitter sweet, mostly sweet, endearing and charming. And of course, absolutely hilarious, but as above, you may need either repeat viewings or be an already established fan of Mooneys work.Finally want to mention Dave McCary. Dave and Kyle are the perfect pairing. I absolutely loved their Youtube skits and even that amazing Instagram series they made it's called the "D and K podcast", look it up . For his first feature length film, there is no way you would be able to tell. The movie is very well directed, I tend to pay attention to how a movie is shot, put together etc, but with this it was always characters first, which I think is a great strength. This movie is inspirational. I can't wait to see what these guys come up with next.
The Less You Know Going In, THE BETTER. (by Obi_Bamm_Karaoke)
Reviewing a film like "Brigsby Bear" is very difficult in the manner by which I review films because it is important to me to keep my reviews as spoiler-free as possible. That being said, understand that my take here will be at a "10,000-foot level," meaning that I have to tell you as little as possible about the film itself to keep its integrity intact.Kyle Mooney has written the script along with Kevin Costello and plays James Pope, who lives in the desert with Ted Mark Hamill and April Jane Adams . He spends most of his time watching his favorite show, <more>
"Brigsby Bear," a children's program that has captured his imagination for his entire life. When the show is cancelled out of nowhere, James decides to take it upon himself to finish Brigsby's story.This is such a different kind of film that it was refreshing to me. Mooney, who is known in the current "SNL" cast for playing kooky, off- beat kinds of characters, channels those talents here and gives James a fun innocence that a character like this requires as the film progresses. His character's journey to fulfill his dream of closure and completion is well told in a way that hit me where I lived one moment, had me laughing out loud the next, and rooting for him in the moment after that. There is a great supporting cast here as well, but to talk too much about them will give away too much of the heart of this film.It truly is important to go into "Brigsby Bear" as cold as you possibly can, avoiding any Internet spoilers in any way, shape, or form in order to truly enjoy its story as a whole. Once you see it and enjoy it, also do everyone else a favor and let them experience it in the same spoiler-free manner that hopefully you did as well.
I was of course never abducted at birth, or held in captivity, but I have felt alienated by the rest of society at times. (by Hellmant)
'BRIGSBY BEAR': Four and a Half Stars Out of Five A comedy-drama about a young man who's spent his entire life living in an underground home with his parents, and his only understanding of the outside world is through an educational kids' TV show called 'Brigsby Bear'. Then he learns that the show is fake, and he was kidnapped from his real parents. This becomes an extremely hard new reality for the young man to accept. The movie stars Kyle Mooney of 'SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE' fame , Mark Hamill, Greg Kinnear, Matt Walsh, Michaela Watkins, Ryan Simpkins, Jorge <more>
Lendeborg Jr., Claire Danes, Jane Adams and Andy Samberg who also served as a producer . It was directed by Dave McCary a veteran 'SNL' writer and director and it was written by Mooney and Kevin Costello both first time feature screenwriters . The film has received mostly positive reviews from critics, and it premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival in theaters. I really enjoyed it. James Pope Mooney has spent his whole life living in an underground home with a couple, Ted Hamill and April Mitchum Adams , that he believes are his parents. He's told the air outside is poisonous, and he's never allowed to leave the home without a gas mask or travel very far from it . James's entire understanding of the outside world is taught to him through an educational kids' show called 'Brigsby Bear'. Then one day police raid their home, and James learns that he was abducted, at birth, from his real parents Walsh and Watkins . He also learns that 'Brigsby Bear' is a fake TV show, that was created by Ted Mitchum. James has a very hard time accepting this information, and learning to adapt to his new life living with his real family. So he tries to adjust to this new reality by creating his own film version of 'Brigsby Bear', continuing the story created by Ted with his new family and friends. Being an outsider, and a huge film lover that strongly believes in the magic of movies , I really enjoyed and respect this film. I was of course never abducted at birth, or held in captivity, but I have felt alienated by the rest of society at times for a couple of different reasons , and I could really relate to James in this movie. I especially could relate to his passion for film, and filmmaking, and his understanding of it's power to deliver empathy to others. So I very strongly agree with the message of this movie, and I could really empathize with the lead character in it. It's also a pretty well acted and directed film too. It's maybe not quite as classic as some even better films, with similar messages, but it is a really good and well made movie.
heartwarming movie showing the true power of imagination and friendship. (by realamandastone)
i had my doubts about Brigsby Bear before i went to go see it. i thought it would be like a horror movie where the bear is like the creepy doll Annabelle and that it will kill everyone as we know it. But, when i went and saw it, i was wrong. The movie was very heartwarming with all the characters friendships and the bond of the main character and the bear was truly a tug on your heartstrings. Kyle Mooney had a lot of guts to get out of his natural comedic side we see on Saturday Night Live and become a whole new character like the one in the movie. I was overall impressed with Brigsby Bear <more>
that i am now considering seeing it again in the near future. so would i recommend it? absolutely. LOVED BRIGSBY BEAR!
The fish out of water scenario never gets old - it's almost like they are in a barrel.Place all SNL movie prejudices aside, this is one sweet flick well worth the screening. Current TV regular Kyle Mooney writes and stars in a deliriously charming story of James, a sheltered manchild taking baby steps in the real world, with the help of his childhood VCR fixation.Brigsby Bear, a fictional character doling out life lessons amidst interstellar adventures, and the only friend to a clever, lonely boy, is actually much more than that. Not all is at it appears. This lifelong television <more>
obsession threatens what is deemed a normal existence once James is introduced to the real world, and we are off to the races.Kyle Mooney is exceptional in a sweet, wide-eyed role, one that could easily fall flat in self- parody, but retains an honest innocence throughout. When serious, life-altering issues arise, tough answers are left on the table as James forges ahead with optimistic zeal on his magical journey, never wavering or falling into cliché realization or self doubt. Yipee!
The Most Original Movie I've Seen in A While (by mikodc)
Brigsby Bear is one of the most creative and original movies I've seen. The performance by Kyle Mooney was great and it didn't feel like some SNL sketch kind of acting and story. It's also great to note that the supporting cast in this movie is also good not only for their acting but also purpose and relativity.
Kyle Mooney at his awkward best (by f-haring)
Kyle Mooney plays James an awkward man discovering a reality he was not aware of. This film balances comedy and drama in a very unique and stylistic way. The characters throughout are conflicted when it comes to dealing with James and it leads to some of the best awkward humor put to screen. Brigsby Bear as a film asks some very deep philosophical questions while being thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining.
