THREE GOOD REASONS
- 1The main character is a foul-mouthed, beer-swilling teddy bear.

- 3Did I mention that the main character is a foul-mouthed, beer-swilling teddy bear?
BET YOU DIDN&#39;T KNOW
The teddy bear was invented after our 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt, went on a hunting trip to Mississippi in 1902. When his attendants cornered, clubbed, and lassoed a black bear so that the president could shoot it, Roosevelt refused, saying that the whole thing was unsportsmanlike. The tale was covered by every newspaper in the land, and the story inspired toymaker Morris Michtom to create what he called a "Teddy bear." By all accounts, there is little animal cruelty—nor are there Theodore Roosevelt impressions—in this movie.
