The Bear

Movie: The Bear
Director: Richard Sarafian
Produced by: Embassy, Embassy Pictures
Released By:
MPAA Rating:

Aimed primarily at American football fans, this dramatized biography of Paul Bryant, a celebrated football coach nicknamed the “Bear,” focuses on the man’s early career as a player and his later work as a coach in the locker rooms and on the field with his own players — in Kentucky, Texas, and Alabama. While the Bear’s personality is clearly brought forward in Gary Busey’s interpretation — he is alternately caring and verbally abusive, depending on the situation at hand — the people who must have meant a lot to him in his life outside of football are underwritten here, and a sense of unfolding drama — outside of his career and the football field — is missing.
