Looking for a wild ride of a movie that’s a fun mash-up of comedy, horror, and a drugged-up bear? Look no further than Cocaine Bear, directed by Elizabeth Banks and starring Keri Russell, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and the late Ray Liotta. But hold on to your seats, because this film is based on a true story that’s even stranger than fiction.

Back in 1985, a guy named Andrew Thornton II, who was a drug smuggler, parachuted out of a plane over northern Georgia with a duffel bag full of cocaine. But unfortunately, he didn’t make it, and he died on impact. However, the cocaine he was carrying was never found. That is, until a black bear stumbled upon it and chowed down on nearly 75 pounds of it. The bear, now known as the “Cocaine Bear”, died of an overdose shortly after.

The movie takes this bizarre premise and runs with it, imagining what would happen if the bear survived and went on a rampage through the woods, crossing paths with a motley crew of cops, criminals, tourists, and teenagers along the way. The result is a hilarious and blood-soaked spectacle that will keep you on the edge of your seat and laughing out loud.

But beware, Cocaine Bear is not for the faint of heart or easily offended. It’s a movie that fully embraces its absurdity and doesn’t shy away from showing the gruesome effects of cocaine addicted bear and its victims. At the same time, it’s a nostalgic homage to the 80s with its fire soundtrack, fun costumes, and throwback references. And let’s not forget about the standout performance by the bear, which is truly one for the cinematic history books.

So, if you’re in the mood for a fun and thrilling movie that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before, Cocaine Bear is a must-watch. You can catch it on Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV for a rental fee. Trust me, it’s an experience you won’t regret. Get ready for a wild ride
