Delightful and true to the original. If you have small children (and even if you don't) you'll enjoy the peaceful comfort that Winnie brings to life. Forget about debt ceilings and budgets and spend an hour with Pooh and the gang!

I grew up on Disney movies. Naturally, I've seen every film at least a dozen times. Winnie The Pooh was one of those. Naturally, I have expectations.
This film has received generally lukewarm reviews. Why? After having watched the latest Winnie The Pooh flick, I'll tell you why: because it resembles the "classic" 1977 Pooh flick, "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh." And that's not a bad thing. But people expected something along the lines of "The Tigger Movie," "Piglet's Big Movie," and "The Heffalump Movie." These films feature storylines and emotional depth. The 1977 Pooh is simple, mildly witty, and wholesome. That's what this latest Pooh episode resembles.
The film is great for what it is. So check it out if you're a Disney, Winnie The Pooh, and/or traditional animation fan. You'll like it.

We went along to see this movie WITHOUT KIDS, as I have been a Pooh fan since a child myself and both my own kids loved the original Pooh movies back when they were little.
This was a really sweet movie and so much better since they reverted back to the "old style" drawings. The story line was really sweet too and loved the fact it was all happening within the storybook itself.
Hopefully another Pooh story will be forthcoming soon, Disney??? :-)

We thought what better time to take our son to his first movie theater movie than Winnie the Pooh. He loves Pooh and watching the classics. This movie, however was too scary for him at the tender age of 3.5 yrs old. 30 minutes in the characters had finished singing about the Backson Monster, thanks to Owl's poor reading skills and over active imagination. Our son was terrified and asked to go home, so we got up and left, disappointed in Disney. He spent the rest of the day fearful of the monster and afraid his books were going to disappear. I have read a recent review that mentioned all the friends fell into the pit they dug to catch the monster - glad we were gone before that happened. If you rate a movie G - you would think it suited for a preschooler. Not the case.
