Cocaine Bear review: Perfectly wild and notably flawed

Thinking about how to write this Cocaine Bear review, I’ll admit I want to say “needs more cocaine and more bears.” But when Cocaine Bear starts with a goofy and silly attack, and never takes himself too seriously, I realize that a lack of drugs or drugged-up animals isn’t actually its problem.

Cocaine Bear, if you’ve somehow landed here without hearing the elevator pitch, is a perfectly farcical action/comedy about a real life incident. In 1985, drug smugglers who dropped cocaine into the forest of Tennessee accidentally wound up giving it to a bear who earned the nickname Pablo Escobear.
