Brother Bear (2003)

30 terrible movies saved by great endings 1

A story about a hunter who is transformed into a bear, Brother Bear was described by critics as an unremarkable Disney movie with an uninspired plot and forgettable dialogue. The lackluster film, however, ends brilliantly with a heartwarming scene, in which the titular character directly confronts his wrongdoings.

Despite receiving generally negative reviews from critics, Brother Bear was a box-office hit, earning a total of $250 million worldwide against a production budget of just $46 million. The Aaron Blaise and Robert Walker-directed flick was even nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 76th Academy Awards in 2004.
