YMMV: The Country Bears
- Awesome Music: Many of the songs, such as "Straight to the Heart of Love", are surprisingly well-done.
- Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Christopher Walken dancing around his office in boxer shorts and bunny slippers, while continuously smashing scale models of Country Bear Hall.
- "Aww no! Aww no! Aww no! Country Bear Hall has been crushed!"
- The musical numbers appear to be this as well.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Most people agree that Christopher Walken as the banker is by far the most entertaining part of the film.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: This thread touches upon the similarities between this film and The Muppets.
- Memetic Mutation: Thanks to The Nostalgia Critic, this line that Christopher Walken's character says toward the end of the film, which the Critic describes as him suddenly remembering there are bears in the movie, became the most memorable thing about it.
"This is not over! *Beat* BEARS!
- Special Effects Failure:
- During a shot of a background building collapsing, one of the bears reacts in surprise by raising his eyebrows and reeling his head back. Unfortunately, both actions occur one after the other rather at the same time, making his reaction look really fake.
- During Elton John's cameo, the controls for the bears got mixed up so the remote puppeteers were controlling the wrong bears. According to director Peter Hastings in episode 40 of Talkin Toons With Rob Paulsen (at the 33 minute mark), the result was one of the bears ended up with a creepily crooked jaw, which Elton took one look at and said "Looks just like me after too much blow!"
- Took the Bad Film Seriously: Only Christopher Walken can put that much sincerity into a role calling for him to arm fart the 1812 Overture.
- Trailer Joke Decay: Every TV spot included that clip of the policemen's hair getting messed up in the car wash, eventually reaching the point where Disney released a commercial that contained nothing but that clip.
- Uncanny Valley: In contrast to the cartoonish cute-looking bears of the Disneyland ride, the bears of this film are more realistically designed, with small eyes and sharp teeth, which causes them to look more frightening than endearing.
- The Woobie: Tennessee O'Neal, whom Muppet Wiki describes as "the most sensitive of the Country Bears band". He was forced to quit the band when his lover left him for a panda, and tried to be a marriage counselor but broke down in stress during sessions. Which makes it all the more satisfying when she returns and they sing their duet.
