Disney forgot that young children are going to watch this and they might be frightened by the storyline. Christopher Robin is an adult now and has a family. When he abandons his family, he encounters his childhood friend, Winnie the Pooh who helps him return to Hundred Acre Wood, where he discovers his old friends. Watching Winnie the Pooh wander through Hundred Acre Wood wasn’t cute; it was more like a horror movie gone wild. It is a shame the film neglects to give Christopher’s wife, Evelyn a personality or any adventure of her own. Despite, the horrors depicted in the film, there are some heart warming scenes. The overall movie was dark as in the lighting, colouring, and grey skies. Then there were moments of happiness and cheer. But the darkness overshadows the light throughout the film. Disney focuses way too much on the darkness and so the movie lacked Disney’s classic magic. 3.5 out of 5 star

Glad I saw this before seeing Goodbye Christopher Robin. It is a good family movie that hits the usual Disney standard. I still feel that Disney makes Tigger sound punch drunk, but that is how they have always portrayed him. Piglet is completely lost in the mix and Winnie seems like he's on Vicodin. That being said kids will find it appealing.

Laugh out loud funny, great for the whole family. Interesting CGI.

Charming and bittersweet. Some might complain that the second act drags a bit, and maybe it does, but I knew what the payoff would be so I had no problems sticking it out. Heffalumps and woozles as allegories was a clever decision.

A happy little romp with well animated Winnie the Pooh characters. The movie takes almost nothing from the real life story of Christopher Robin. The movie tries to convince the audience of the magic of childhood that is lost when they become adults. The best parts of the movie are the interactions between the characters of the Hundred Acre Woods.

Utterly charming! I grew up on Winnie the Pooh and friends. Was lovely to see them again, albeit a bit older and scruffier. Reminds us to have fun, enjoy the journey of life.

Disney's dumbed down versions of A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh stories have always lacked the dry humour intended for adults, but I was pleased to see how much this film incorporates from the originals. The plot follows an adult Christopher Robin ( who was a real person 1920-1996 and his last name was not Robin) re-learning what it's like to be a child. The same theme can be found in the awful film Hook (1991) and even Mary Poppins (1964), but it works well here. The semi-imaginary animal characters are incorporated into reality as quickly as Paddington and I think this was handled rather well. Suitable for children but also intended for nostalgic adults. Do re-read the original stories!

Loved it! Great storyline, the voices of Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, etc. were spot on. Really brought back memories of when my grandmother would read me these stories.
