Wow. I really wasn't expecting much but I have to agree with the other reviews. This movie was great. I laughed, I cried. Great gay movie :-)

I really enjoyed this movie and I am thinking of buying it. The acting was great, the story line was wonderful. It was funny and endearing and I just loved Gerald McCullouch' intensity as he kept thinking of the younger man he should not be having.... Read More

BearCity is a tantalizing mix of love, lust, heartache and hope wrapped up in one exquisitely furry and fun package. Multiple plot lines are developed as the viewer is drawn into the personal lives of young chaser Tyler (Joe Conti) and his bearish lo... Read More

Doug Langway did an outstanding job bring this story to us. We saw the film in Fort Lauderdale which seemed like a Bear A list event. I enjoyed the film.

The Actors are very likable, and the acting is more than passable, especially by Ge... Read More

Doug Langway's film "Bear City" Is a fun look at a community that flies under the general gay radar most strait people do not know exist.. In a satirical yet endearing way the film explores the diversity of men within this small niche group... "Bears... Read More

From the cover to the very beginning and through the very end this movie was absolutely a great Romance/Comedy. The entire movie was very realistic & descriptive about the lives that that many Bears live (not all the way down to the nitty gritty, but... Read More

I saw this movie at the premiere in NYC, and ordered it immediately for my collection!

This film has rightly won awards from the gay community and raves from indy critics! I was blown away by the reality of the lines and the bear life (o... Read More

Review by BigDaddyNYC

By: BigDaddyNYC
The tagline for BearCity has been "It's like Sex in the City, for Bears!" I think it's better! It's sexy, without full frontal gratuitous nudity. For the most part, the acting is professional and believable! The way that Mr. Langway weaves the many s... Read More

Review by DeMoNYC

This movie has laughs, sighs, tunes, and a lot of woofy beard-on-beard action. This is sexy shoestring film-making for bearlovers that ranges from realistic drama to over-the-top comedy -- just how we like our stories and our lives. It's a New York s... Read More

I'm IN LOVE with BearCity! I recently went to the screening of Bear City in Toronto! The storylines are exceptional and the responses humanly (and humorously) examined. The cast is perfectly portrayed with absolutely no pretention. I've invested into... Read More

Great Direction, Great Cast and I had alot of fun!

When the best part of the movie is the crap tossed in with the credits - buyer/renter beware!

Bad acting, bad casting, cheesy directing, stupid story, stereotyping the gay community BY the gay community, and enough bad jokes to make you th... Read More

Um, I know what I want from Santa! From the opening scene (see Santa reference) to the closing credits, I found this film to be one furry, fantastic, fun ride - better than Cats! (hey, we're talking bears after all, aren't we?)

Seriously, ... Read More

Review by Big Bear

By: Big Bear
BearCity is a wonderful movie. My partner and I enjoyed it very much. I think one reason
is I really liked the characters in the movie. From the "bears" to the "chasers" I think it
really showed how difficult it is sometimes to still be a... Read More

I was able to get a ticket for BearCity at the LA Outfest film festival even though it wasn't billed as one for the ladies and I was surprised just how many "Goldilocks" (girls who like bears and cubs) there were like me in the audience, laughing as ... Read More

"Bear City" is well acted, well directed, well written, funny, sexy romp set in the bear world of New York City. Doug Langway scores a hat trick here - his film is truly sexy for all kinds of men, funny and yet manages to be about gay life as we kno... Read More

Review by DC Jock Bear

By: DC Jock Bear
What a wonderful, poignant, laugh-filled view of the bear world. This film is going to have great and broad audience appeal, not just for the bear audience. The film very touchingly introduces us to a sub-group of the gay community that we very rar... Read More

Review by LA Cocoboy

Reportedly one of two "bear" themed movies released this year on the gay film festival circuit, to supposed-- and I do mean "supposed"--critical appraise. It will make anyone with good taste ask, Are we gay guys so desperate for good cinema these day... Read More
