Highly Suspect Reviews: Cocaine Bear

Cocaine Bear Movie Review


It’s a bear, but on cocaine! Now take that sentence, reorganize it 30 times, and you’ve pretty much got the movie Cocaine Bear. There, I just saved you 15 bucks. But I know, I know…“IT’S A BEAR, BUT ON COCAINE” you’re saying to yourselves. “I’ve just gotta see that”. I guess the studio that made this knew that too as the release for this went from extremely limited to very wide once the internet got ahold of the concept. I just want you to ask yourselves, do you remember how gaga you went when the ads for Snakes on a Plane first came out? Do you remember how you felt when you saw the film? Your results may vary, I suppose, to this film about A BEAR, BUT ON COCAINE but Chris’, Mars’, and Marco’s did not. Listen to their review to hear more about the bear….ON COCAINE.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas in 1992 where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal” turned into a full-time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this community of critics. While Brian eventually followed his heart to a new family, Chris continues on with a cast of colorful folks from all over the country (and a few others). You can also check out Chris in his videocast, along with Martin Thomas and Danni Danger, that One Of Us does with our friends at Bell of Lost Souls: Crossover Event. He also regularly guests on the video game website Rage Select. Follow Chris on Twitter and Facebook and check out his Amazon Wish List.

Mars enjoys bad movies, motorsportsball, and the internet. She’s been the resident pop-culture and toy/collectibles editor at BoLS for the better part of a decade. An ardent action and horror fan, she takes pride in the number of movies she’s seen with a 10% or lower RT rating. Just don’t ask her to watch a rom-com.

By day, Marco is a mild-mannered office worker, but by night he is a mild-mannered movie watcher. He does other mild-mannered stuff too.

  1. “I would watch Cocaine Robot…but don’t make it.” Chris that’s the best sign-off line ever, and got a bigger laugh out of me than I reckon Cocaine Bear would.
