Winnie the Pooh Review
The thing I think I liked the best about this movie is the fact that they animated it just like the old one. They didn't try to go 3D or CGI or anything stupid like that. They stuck to the original formula and it worked. There's no attempt to modernize the characters or story. Because of that, it has a great nostalgic value.
It is also very cleverly written. For the entire story, you feel like you are actually in the mind of a child playing in his room with his collection of stuffed animals. The story follows this type of meandering imagination quite well. In that respect, it is very much like A Town Called Panic. The jokes are very well delivered by the voice over cast. But it also doesn't hurt that all of the characters are complete morons. I spent most of the 70 minutes laughing or at the very least, smiling.
See it. It is a great escape from reality that makes you feel good. And, if you have children, they should like it too. Now if I could just get them to make a Sport Goofy movie ...
