YMMV / Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation

  • Awesome Music: "Forever Young", the end credits song, sung by the late Carol Parks.
    • Strangely, it also qualifies for a Big Lipped Alligator Moment, as it has absolutely nothing to do with the plot and no real context is provided for what's happening.
  • Evil Is Cool: Why some viewers end up rooting for Dark Heart and Christy.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Yes, Dark Heart has a Fangirl following.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Dark Heart and Christy, big time.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Christy becomes a Jerkass when Dark Heart makes her good at sports, but beforehand the poor girl didn't think she was good at anything. This is why she ends up assisting Dark Heart in his plan, 'cause if she doesn't she'll go back to how she used to be.
  • Narm: "Time for a game of disappearing bears." Doubles as Memetic Mutation.
  • Padding: It had a musical number at the end that was pretty much just there to make sure it fulfilled the bare minimum for screentime. The song itself was over six minutes long and over half of it consisted of endlessly-repeated chorus (ostensibly to cover the end credits).
  • Tear Jerker: The ending musical number.
    • The song about growing up, sung while watching all the characters we know better as mature Care Bears/Cousins grow, can also stir up some emotions.
    • The revelation that almost all the Care Bears/Cousins are orphans.
    • Dark Heart's Heel Realization when he almost kills Christy.
    Dark Heart: Oh no... what have I done!?
  • Wangst: If you didn't think Christy's woes over being bad at sports were understandable.
    • In all fairness, it's not just sports, she doesn't think she's good at ANYTHING. Sports are just the focus since she's at camp
    • Also, keep in mind that Christy's peers kept looking down on her and making fun of her for not being good at sports. It was as much the result of not being good at sports that drove Christy over the edge, not the mere fact that she wasn't good at sports.
      • Of course, this also led to her agreeing to kidnap others so that she wouldn't lose her prowess at sports, which places it pretty firmly in this category.
