BearCity 3

DIRECTOR: Doug Langway

World Premiere

Expected to attend: Director Doug Langway, Producer Jay Barry Azzato, Producer Joseph Amorin

The beefy, burly boys of the sweet and frisky BearCity series return for a final rom-com romp in the delightfully satisfying climax to the popular trilogy, which from the start has celebrated let-it-all-hang-out body positivity, the comforts of coupledom, and the joys of camaraderie among a loveable group of gorgeous guys who all seemingly suffer from xyrophobia (fear of razors, naturally).

This final installment finds nervous nelly Brent and papa bear Fred preparing for parenthood, with Brent’s wisecracking mom (the scene-stealing Kathy Najimy) providing baby-proofing tips and Fred’s sis serving as super-preggers surrogate. Will filmmaker Fred finish his bear epic before she pops? Meanwhile, silver fox Roger is broke and lonely, bumming beer from friends and yearning to rekindle a spark with sexy ex Tyler, now shacking up with closeted fireman Jay. Their buddy Michael has a shot at domestic bliss with Dalton, if only the cub’s phone-hacking teenage daughter will give the bow-tied suitor a chance (and if he can let go of his blood-stained beef jerky wrapper… but that’s another story).

As plot strands tangle, the gang embarks on a campy camping trip replete with body paint, trysting twinks, a much-used outdoor sling, and an actual bear in the woods. Everyone has a roaring good time—including the grizzly—and viewers are sure to do the same as the beloved trilogy comes to a climax in a furry flurry of hirsute pursuit.
