The best dumb and fun movies are the ones that know they’re dumb and fun. Cocaine Bear knows it, and it happily, almost smugly, leans into the full range of bats**t craziness. This movie is madcap, often unhinged and most definitely wildly entertaining. Hard to believe but Cocaine Bear is loosely based on the real story. While there’s no record of the real-life bear – later nicknamed Pablo Escobear – rampaging through the forest and gorging on human victims, the story was prey for an absolute romp of a movie. Joining director Elizabeth Banks is a ragtag ensemble including Keri Russell and the late Ray Liotta. The plot is roughly as you’d expect – a black bear does a crap-tonne of cocaine and loses it mind in its quest for more and more and more coke. Anyone who comes across the bear is in for a bumpy time. –News.com.au
“The film is well made, efficient, clever, and some of its funny lines will have you, um, snorting. But in the end, it’s still about a bear on a coke binge.”—Baltimore Magazine
