Cocaine Bear

Director: Elizabeth Banks
Year Released: 2023
Rating: 0.0

Attorney/paratrooper/smuggler Andrew Thornton (Matthew Rhys) accidentally dumps millions of dollars' worth of nose candy in the Chattahoochee–Oconee National Forest where a black bear consumes a large portion of it and goes on a rampage - there to try to recover the shipment are Syd (Ray Liotta), his son Eddie (Alden Ehrenreich) and assistant Daveed (O'Shea Jackson Jr.) while nervous mother Sari (Keri Russell) sets out in search of her missing daughter Dee Dee (Brooklynn Prince).  It is loosely based on a real incident that happened in 1985 - Thornton did fall to his death but the actual animal overdosed and never harmed anyone - but it's also a one-joke movie (that isn't all that funny to begin with), with Banks (working off a script by Jimmy Warden) unable to prevent it from being a tonal mish-mosh.  I imagine some younger, more hip filmmaker could have maximized the "meme appeal" of it ... but even that might not have worked.  Plus, everyone knows the only true cocaine bear was Henry Hill in Goodfellas.
