Cocaine Bear is Awesome!

It's exactly as advertised and it's a hilarious good time.

Some of the best death scenes I've seen in a movie.

And a cameo by Blowjob Queen Nancy Reagan!

My god. From wikipedia:


The film is loosely inspired by the events surrounding a 175-pound (79 kg) American black bear that died after ingesting a duffel bag full of cocaine in December 1985. The cocaine had been dropped out of an airplane piloted by Andrew C. Thornton II, a former narcotics officer and convicted drug smuggler, because his plane was carrying too heavy a load. Thornton then jumped out of the plane with a faulty parachute and died. The bear was found three months later in northern Georgia alongside 40 opened plastic containers of cocaine. The bear is currently on display at the Kentucky for Kentucky Fun Mall in Lexington, Kentucky, which named the creature "Cocaine Bear" in 2015.

I won’t watch this. If it were a documentary, fine, but playing a horrid situation for laughs isn’t my thing.

I really didn’t understand Elizabeth Banks before, & she lost even more credibility with this now.

R2 someone needs a sense of humor

by Anonymousreply 3February 24, 2023 7:26 AM

R2 I’ve said this before, and I can confirm now that I’ve seen the movie: No animals were harmed (it was a CGI bear) and the film doesn’t glorify animal abuse. It’s not a docudrama of the actual events upon which the story takes its inspiration. It’s an over-the-top gross-out comedy. “Respect the bear” is the tacit message throughout. It’s certainly not for everyone, but at least reject it for a legitimate reason.

Move over, Sharknado, there's a new bear in town.

"I felt a lot of sympathy for the bear. Like, wow, this bear — which, in real life, ended up dead after eating all this coke — ended up being sort of collateral damage in this War on Drugs. And I just thought, Well, then this movie can be a revenge story for the bear. And it just gave me a point of view and a purpose for making it. Like, there's a real message here: We should not f--- with nature, nature will win."

I’m R2 & I stand corrected. I’d thought they were mocking the bear with this movie.

The 4th thread on this and the 2nd with the same headline. It's entertainment for the lower class. The crowd I saw it with was sparse and dressed in their finest trailer-park-pajamas-in-public attire. Very few laughs, and for an "outrageous" concept was executed with bland conventions. The only true things in the movie were that the drug runner did actually die when his parachute didn't open, and a bear ate some cocaine. The actual bear never attacked anybody and was found dead. Everything else is sloppily made up and feels false. The digital bear is ok but almost never looks realistic. Identical attacks occur and the random characters are forgettable. A far, far cry from a great, violent, stylish comedy like FARGO. A few people left after the lame resolution but before the end credits rolled. A B picture that's more of a C picture. It won't even be a sleeper hit.

Your thoughts on Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny R9 ?

by Anonymousreply 10February 24, 2023 8:59 AM

Were they on cocaine? Cocaine makes things funny, in theory.

I must admit, I will watch this. It looks fun. I had no idea of the back story though, that poor creature. I do hope that some proceeds from the film go to some kind of wildlife fund.

R9 must be a HOOT at parties. It's not Oscar bait, it's a fun comedy.

And that DL Fave Margo Martindale scene...

And yet you subject us to the spectacle of a slack-jawed, overly precious, stupid and misplaced crank every time you post, huh, dishonest cunt at R2?

Go back to your fur babies and "Happy Otters" videos.

Shut up Jamie Lee Curtis. We don't like your movie because there is no cartoon bear on cocaine in it!

It will only result in odious spinoffs like Cocaine Hedgehog, Cocaine Cow, Fentanyl Fox, Opiod Opossum.

Well SMELL YOU! Her Royal Highness at R9 spent a night at the theatah with the common riff-raff and now she has insights!

You really can't beat Datalounge for this kind of prissy, stuck up shit.

"We have officially sunk very low with “Cocaine Bear,” way past other films where the title alone describes the only thing that happens, like “Snakes on a Plane,” “We Bought a Zoo” or “Sharknado", It blows"

I saw it. Not funny. The concept definitely has great potential (which is why I went to see it). But it fails to deliver.

Let’s put it this way. It’s kind of cute now and then. But it’s nowhere near as cute as it thinks it is.

I have no interest in seeing this, but it would seem r9 was incorrect. It is a hit. $23M in its opening weekend domestically with $5.5M overseas, so it's almost hit its $30million budget in three days.

Seriously, don't waste your money on this. Pirate it if you must. Go buy some real blow instead.

It's that bad. It tries way too hard to be some sort of camp masterpiece, but falls miserably flat.

Every single actor screams out, "A BEAR....did COCANIE!" every few minutes in case the audience forgot.

I wanted to be entertained. I went to see it in a movie theater. Nope.

Huge pass for me. Banks should stay in front of the camera.

Sitting through the trailer was painful enough. Talk about a one note concept. Hard pass.
