Synopsis

Best bros Grizzly, Panda and Ice Bear have always had each other’s backs. When their love of food trucks and internet fame leads to unexpected mayhem, they must go on a wild, hilarious, and dangerous adventure to escape a foe that threatens to tear them apart.

Plot

In San Francisco, Grizzly, Panda and Ice Bear start their day by rushing through the city to be the first in line at a new poutine food truck. Along the way, they cause havoc for the people in the street who berate them for their carelessness. The friendly Officer Murphy reveals that he has collected folders of Bear Complaints, but cannot find any reason to punish them. Realizing how much trouble they cause, and incensed over Nom Nom getting special treatment, The Bears decide to become viral stars (Despite having failed in the past). They hook up an entire computer system to their house and force stream their antics to everyone in the city. Everyone finds their live feed amusing, mostly because they are repeating outdated memes, but everyone quickly turns on them again when they cause a massive blackout.

Murphy refuses to enforce severe punishment, until Agent Trout, a nature preservationist, arrives declaring that wild animals, in general, in public places is not natural and that the Bears need to be taken away and separated. The public agrees and the bears are stuffed in a police van. As Darrell, Tabes, Chloe and Lucy complain to Trout about his treatment of the Bears, Charlie, Brenda and the rest of the forest animals hijack the van and drive into the forest. Inspired by the poutine truck, Grizz suggests that they flee to Canada because they love bears there. Panda initially rejects the idea but changes his mind when he realizes that he does not want to stay with Charlie. They disguise their van has a hippie van and make their way to Canada.

After outwitting Trout's agents at an inspection stop, the Bears get into an argument over which route to take and end up getting driven off the road by the Mystery Machine. They crash their van near a cornfield and discover a stick-stadium that is full of internet-famous animals who are having a rave. While the animals are inviting, they confront the Bears when they learn that they are not internet stars. The Bears explain their situation and the animals sympathize with them and allow them to stay. However, one of the attendees (Pizza Rat) alerts Trout to their location after having grown jealous of their inclusivity. The animals fight off the agents while Dramatic Cow and the Raccoons see the Bears off in their newly fixed van.

The Bears get chased by Trout and his men but manage to escape, though the van once again gets destroyed. They make it to the Canadian border. Unfortunately, to their dismay, their trip doesn't paid up well as they discover that they cannot enter due to them not having any passports.

Furious by what he and Ice Bear put them through, Panda scolds Grizz for this, which the latter responds it by yelling at him. Eventually, Panda harm his brothers’ feelings, by saying they are not brothers. Just as Trout and his men arrive to capture them. Trout announces his plan to have Panda and Ice Bear sent to China and The Arctic, respectively, while Grizz is encased in a bear enclosure with other non-speaking bears. After having a conversation with his younger self, Grizz remembers that he made a promise on the day he met Panda and Ice Bear; that they would be bros for life. Grizz breaks out of the enclosure and frees the other bears where they proceed to free Panda and Ice Bear.

A fire breaks out due to an electrified fence and Murphy arrives in a helicopter to rescue them. The Bears decide to make the biggest bear stack they can as news reporters and onlookers watches, which makes the citizens of San Francisco realize the error of their ways. Trout uses the Bears to escape onto the helicopter, but Murphy arrests him and all the Bears manage to escape. Afterward, the Bears are viewed as heroes, Trout is taken into custody and Murphy announces his intent to have the Bears taken home. Grizz has Murphy allow all the other Bears to become naturalized in San Francisco as everyone begins to appreciate their presence and adopt them into their society as well as apologising to the bears for their mistreatment to them. During the credits, more bears arrive in San Francisco with many of them adopting human behavior similar to Grizz, Panda, and Ice Bear while humans begin adopting many of the Bears' behavior such as the stack.

Trivia

Cultural References

  • The Bears reference several memes when attempting to make the ultimate video:
    • Grizzly dabs at the beginning of the ultimate viral video, and Ice Bear followed with a dab of his own afterwards.
    • Grizzly at one point references the Gangnam Style and even dresses like Psy.
    • In the same scene, Ice Bear dunks cold water on Grizz, a reference to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
    • Ice Bear does the Bottle Flip Challenge.
    • Panda even references the Shooting Stars meme after Grizz pushes him off the roof of the cave.
    • The Bears also do the Harlem Shake at one point during the scene.
    • While the monitor glitches, Grizz and Ice Bear do the floss from The Backpack Kid meme and Fortnite.
    • Near the end of the bears' attempt to create an ultimate video, Panda's outfit is a reference to Pikotaro, the singer of PPAP (Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen). He holds a pen, pineapple, and an apple, which are also references to the aforementioned song.
    • Similarly, Ice Bear plays with fidget spinners which is a reference to their popularity in 2017.
  • The Mystery Machine from Scooby-Doo makes a cameo appearance as the Bears nearly collided with it and swerve off the road.
  • All of the Internet-famous animals are references to animal memes:
  • When the Internet-famous animals threaten to call the police on the bears, Grizzly demanded a parley which is from Pirates of the Caribbean, which is a negotiation conference between opposing sides.
  • A new version of Fleetwood Mac's Everywhere done by Roosevelt in 2019 plays during the credits of the film.
  • The 1969 song Aquarius or Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In from the 60's band The 5th Dimension is what the bears play when they're talking to the troops in their disguises to get to Canada.
    • The troop replies Turn that hippy dippy music off. Probably hinting he doesn't like the song or the 60's music.
  • Ice Bear at one point states Take Ice Bear's hand if you want to live after freeing Panda from his cage, the line being a reference to Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator's iconic line Come with me if you want to live from Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
  • In the credits, there's a bear in a crowd with rainbow flags, a reference to the LGBT community, potentially referencing parallels between how the bears were treated as if they didn't belong and how the LGBT community is treated by others. (However in some countries like Malaysia, this was censorded and is replaced with the ultimate Video)
  • At the climax of the film, Agent trout says I said, Get back to your cages! possibly an oblique reference to Destiny 2: forsaken, where cayde-6 says the same line.
  • The train scene is inspired by Stand By Me (1986).
