Disney messes up Pooh
The Pooh story and characters as usual are very good and 70% of the show's story and animation was very well done. The issue is that Disney following its seeming huge quest to 'sing its way through movies' has added way too many songs.
We took triplet grand-daughters to the movie based on our love of A A Milne's characters. To put it mild, the girls were bored out of their mind by all the songs. When there was story and animation things were fine. To add, my wife and I were bored by all the songs ourselves.
The movie was an hour and nine minutes, which honestly was more than enough. Sadly, because I am sure that the song writers would have thrown in some more un-catchy jingles to add more minutes to the show.
With half as many songs and more of the great animation this would have been a Must Go! movie.
