Bear City films 1-3 are a comedy movie trilogy about bears!
The first movie, follows a tight-knit pack of friends experiencing comical mishaps, emotionally sweet yet lusty romantic encounters and a cast of colorful, diverse characters as they gear up for a big party weekend. Closet cub Tyler fantasizes about stuffing Santa’s stocking and finding a Daddy bear to do more than cuddle. But as he dives into the bear community, he finds that it can be hard for a hairless guy to get some fuzzy loving. Add to that some adorable eye-candy, beer busts and a maybe-not-so-monogamous bear couple for roommates, and BearCity makes for a beartastic summertime romp.
