That's "Cocaine Bear," now in theaters to make you scream with fear or laughter, or both simultaneously
"Cocaine Bear" has sharper teeth than "Snakes,"
It starting with a cast led by Keri Russell and the late Ray Liotta, it falls into the same one-joke trap.
Cocaine Bear" is actually based on a true story
In 1985, convicted drug smuggler Andrew Thornton dropped $14 million worth of cocaine from a plane he was piloting into a Georgia national park, where a 175-pound black bear ingested a bunch and died
Russell's character, Sari, is a divorced mom and career nurse. She's in the woods looking for her 12-year-old daughter, Dee Dee (Brooklynn Prince),
a wannabe artist who's ditched school with puppy love Henry (Christian Convery) to paint a waterfall near Blood Mountain, where a certain bear -- a protective momma herself, is ready to pounce, chasing Henry up a tree
It's a treat seeing Russell re-team with her co-star in "The Americans," the sublime Margo Martindale, who plays Liz, a forest ranger with the hots for Peter
There's also a teen gang led by Stache (Aaron Holliday) that robs and stabs tourists.
They call themselves The Duchamps, after the French Dadaist art movement.

a film where a real bear suffering a miserable drug overdose alone in the frozen woods doesn’t exactly scream blockbuster.
it’s likely that the film will tell the story of why the bear found the cocaine, which is a humdinger of a caper.
It turns out that the man who left the cocaine in the woods was Andrew Thornton, a corrupt narcotics officer who had become the head of an international drug smuggling operation.
