Film Summary: A Sundance 2017 selection, this film is a true indie dramedy that earned much buzz and affection in Park City. The show “Brigsby Bear Adventures” is a children’s television program produced for an audience of one: James Pope. When the series abruptly ends, Pope’s life changes forever as he sets out to finish the storyline himself. To do that, he must learn how to cope with the realities of a new world that he knows nothing about.

What the critics are saying:

The biggest jolt is how each laugh brings forth more feeling in a movie that flirts with tragedy but opts for joy.

– Manohla Dargis, New York Times

It’s a sweet and sometimes delightful melancholic story of a lonely man saved by imagination and love. That sounds like a bushel of cornball…if the director didn’t lead from the heart.

– New York Times Critic’s Pick

Kyle Mooney (SNL) and co-writer Kevin Costello poke fun at cheesy children’s programs like ‘Barney & Friends’ or ‘Teletubbies’ that drill moral lessons into simplistic everyday conundrums.

– Chicago Tribune

Scrappy and modest though their movie may be, it all coheres beautifully, and with a sweetness that never feels faked.

– Los Angeles Times

This dramedy from several SNL veterans has a pretty strong case of the cutes…at the same time it’s genuinely imaginative and sweetly likable.

– Common Sense Media
