Okay, I'm not one to take my problems to the Internet, but I have no one in the real world that I can talk about this seriously. I mean, it's not all THAT bad, but it's still somewhat shameful/touchy.

The problem started two weeks ago when we were watching TV. She saw that godawful Yogi bear commercial and she now wants to go see the movie this weekend...

How can I not go, please help ?

It's OK my wife wanted to see Little Man when she saw the ad for that. What I did was say, "OK" and then never went. I just came up with alternative things to do besides going to see a movie. If you can just make up other stuff to do for a couple of weeks, that movie is sure to bomb out of the theater quick enough that you won't have to worry about it again until it comes out on DVD.

I avoid renting it because we use Netflix and I always just put other stuff in front of it in the queue.

Yogi actually looked like it might be funny. It doesn't look nearly as cheesy or idiotic as I thought it would.
Don't count on this one bombing out, but I'm sure you can avoid the theaters for a month as long as she doesn't have a chance to bring up "lets go to the movies" on a random Saturday afternoon.

Think you two are missing the bigger issue.

Could you really ever settle down with someone who WANTED to see that movie?

If my wife ever proposed, "Hey, let's drop the kids off and go see a movie together, I hear the Yogi Bear movie's going to be at the cinema!," my respect for her would drop about 98% and I'd have divorce papers being drawn up before the weekend was over. Well, OK, I wouldn't divorce her, but I'd bring her into the emergency room, because she clearly must have suffered a major head trauma at some point recently.

You haven't been donkey-punching her, have you?

^^^ Not more than usual, so I very much doubt that's it.

She just has a taste for campy crap when it comes to movies/tv shows, so no brain damage, and it's pretty much the only thing wrong with her after 4 years of cohabitation.

Staging a fake car accident ?

Tell her that during a hypnotherapy session you've uncovered a deep seated ursaphobia.

Bring a flask. Pour its contents liberally into your $10 bucket of soda. You'll soon forget about Yogi and daydream of the awesome bedroom session that's bound to follow.

Dude, if she gets aroused from an animated bear and his wacky antics, that's an even bigger red flag.
