TheMartinator - Horrible Movie To A Great Silly Lovable Bear
Don’t you just love it when cartoons and characters that you grew up with become stupid and boring when it comes to a movie like this? I saw this movie once, and it sucked, even though I love Pooh, Tiger, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Owl, and the rest of the gang. Most of the voice cast is completely different, but the only voice actor who didn’t get replaced was Jim Cummings, who voices Pooh and Tigger. Peter Cullen, who voices Eeyore the Donkey is replaced by Rick’s voice actor from The Incredibles. The new guy voicing Eeyore the Donkey sounded almost like Peter Cullen. The other new voice cast just don’t live up to the original cast, just like with other Disney Sequels when they can’t get an original voice actor to reprise the roll of his character, they find someone new. So take Dan Castellaneta replacing Robin Williams as the voice of the Genie in The Return Of Jafar for example. I just did not like this movie, Disney failed big time ruining my childhood.
Why should I worry - Yes
I am amazed this is one of the animated stories to bring back the traditional animation:)
Kerwin24 - Best
Best original movie ever
tikiroomfan - Nothing better.
A stone-cold classic. Or, rather, a fluffy, sticky, warm one.
djhawsome - awwwwww!
i renember this from back when i was 6!
CatKeena - Cute but not nearly as good as the originals
This was not nearly as good as the 1977 version nor as good as the 1997 The search for Christopher Robin movie. In fact this movie seems like it was an attempt to combine the movies together. Though it was cute it just wasn't as good as it could have been. I could tell the plots quickly and felt like this movie was kind of a rip off of the two very popular movies instead of being something original which was what I was looking forward too. Unfortunately this is not the case in this movie. It takes the best stories from each of the originals and tries to make it look as if it is brand new and it really isn't. Was disappointed in Disney when they made this.
Lady In Red7 - Amazing and Wonderful
I love this movie, I'm 56 years old and still love Winnie the Pooh and his pals. I have all movies and collect Winnie the Pooh pins from Disneyland (More than 1,000) waiting for anything new on this Bear and his pals
Nsm1978 - Great
Best Winnie the Pooh by far
Stilesbrettmich607 - Not bad
Good movie but I prefer the original Winnie the Pooh over this one.
villainfan - Great movie!
A worthy follow-up to one of the best Disney films.
Rickster021203 - Really
Come on waste your time on a remake of this
WaltDisneyfan#1 - Best Disney Movie in a Long Time
Winnie the Pooh is cute, charming, and at times, downright hilarious.
Crazyhyperson - :D
Oh my God! Thank u for bringing Christopher Robbin back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hated the girl that was in Winnie the pooh with the baby elephant friend! The baby elephant was cute though! But I hated her :( she can't hold a candle to christopher! Sterling holloway's pooh bear #1 Jim cumming's pooh #2!!! :D
lubbrglashleyland - Pooh's more than a childhood friend.
Honestly, I hate going to movie theaters.. but I dragged my 6 years old cousin with me to watch this. I loovee pooh bear. After 15 years of loving pooh bear, I actually went into this movie expecting it to be a little lame and childish, but I actually found myself enjoying myself very much. I was in a theater filled with little kids, but I'm sure that me and all the other adults in there were laughing and crying at heartfelt moments that touch people of all ages.
If you're too embarrassed to buy this because you're "too old", it's ok, just say you had to screen to movie for yourself before you let your little brother read it ;)
Nick Scott Turner - Perfect Movie for Kids Under 5
There is absolutely nothing wrong with this movie. It's just the right length for very young kids. It's funny enough for parents. The songs are sing-alongable. The voice acting is memorable. Buy it now.
The Ubingers - Good but with issues
This was a great movie and my 20 month old just loved it! The movie kept showing spanish subtitles though that would come on randomly and then go off. The credits at the end even changed to spanish about half way through. Not worth $20.
bridgream - No more interesting.
Perhaps you have to try iTunes extra---this film itself is no longer attractive, especially Robin is not cute and Pooh is less silly now.
Marshallf4 - So Good!!!
kr0-0gs - Charming And Beautiful
I bought it to have 1080p Pooh and I'm thoroughly pleased. Fantastic animation, lovable characters and the purest kind of humor.
Eddie March - Not worth it!
Being a fan since childhood I chose not to heed the warnings of the minority number of bad reviews--how sorry I am. Not only does Disney rip you off by charging $15 for this typical modern spin on a classic but it has a wanting, lack luster script although the backgrounds in the movie are very well done nothing else I can say is positive, even Keanes trailer song Somewhere Only We Know is missing from this movie. BEWARE!!
Katrina Rider - Help
I have just enough money to buy this movie should I
Bitterly honest reviewer - I mean seriously....... Winnie the pooh?
I cant believe I rented this movie. I should have bought it first day it came out. I loved this movie and before I saw it I thought I'd give it a three out of five but this surprised the crap out of me it was amazing
I was bitterly honest
Kittylove2000 - Winnie The Pooh Rocks!!!😃😃😃
I've LOVED Pooh Bear for as long as I can remember and I still love him now that I'm 10 years old!! I think it will be a grate movie though I still have not seen it but I hope 2 soon!!😊😊😊😊❤❤❤he bring back memories and just thinking of it makes my eyes water😂😂😂😃😃☺☺wow so many people said that the movie was horrible but It probably isn't I mean who dosent like old Pooh Bear???😒he is cute and funny and even more cute and cuddly especially!!

From a ten year old
Oh ya and it's never a waste of time to watch Pooh Bear 😠
sjm711 - Not a fan
Honestly, my favorite part of the movie was the credits because it was over (and because Zooey Deschanel sings the theme song). The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh has been one of my favorite movies since I was a little girl and I guess anything other than that just doesn't resonate with me very well. I was extremely annoyed by the voices of the characters...they just weren't right! And the songs of the film besides the Zooey Deschanel ones, were a little too corny for me. I felt like the Backson song was trying to be the new Heffalumps and Woozles song and it just didn't work. Not only that but they made Eeyore super depressed in this one, way more than the original and he is my favorite so that was upsetting. It just didn't stand up to the classic and I was very disappointed and annoyed by it. It is probably a great movie for children, a new generation who aren't as familiar with Winnie the Pooh but for those of us who love the classic, this is not the best movie...
Melapsley - Best animated movie in years!
My 21 month old will ask to watch this movie every day! It's funny and unique, and the soundtrack is great! I have NEVER been a Winnie the Pooh fan, but this movie changed that! We quote this movie in our house all the time now! Well done!
Money!!!!! - Worst movie ever
Wast of time

매우 만족하며, 빨리 한국 아이튠즈 스토어에서도 만나봤으면 좋겠습니다.
Bunnyboyj - Great Movie
I have to say that even though I am 12 years old, I still find a great interest in the world of Winnie the Pooh. I like the classic, storybook feel of this movie (much like "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh") and the classic look at the hundere-acre-wood. I find that I can only make one complaint about the movie, and that is that it is only a little over an hour long. It is a perfect amount of time to tell the story that the movie tells, but I wish there was more. While watching it for the first time, I could not find one point in the movie where I did not have an ear to ear grin on my face, if i was not laughing hystarically. I know many people who are the perfect age to see Winnie the Pooh and his friends for the first time, and I think that they are lucky that this might be the first Winnie the Pooh movie that they will be seeing. I feel as though that this movie is a great choice for anybody, not just kids, but also adults.
Jorozco1002 - Great movie
It's true, innocent, pure, genuine, comedy just absolutely amazing movie that uplifts you from beginning to end
Margaret Kuras - Growing up with Winnie the pooh..
I have grown up with Winnie the pooh as one of my favorite stories.. And now as an 18 year old I finally had the opportunity to watch this most recent one, and as much as I loved it the one thing that disappointed me the most was the change in some of the characters voices. Other than that this was done really well, just like the classics, and I'm so glad that Disney let this out for kids now to watch what was pretty much my childhood :)
-still loving Winnie the pooh at 18 :)
CanadiAli - This movie rocks!
This movie is so adorable, and my 2 year old loves it! And daddy and mommy enjoy it over and over too... Great music, AWESOME, vocal talents in every role-- Love Craig Ferguson's Owl, classic! Worth every penny... If you think Poo is played out, check out this totally fresh take.
Mr. Mouse 1928 - Everything is hunny!
I know that some of these comments are about how Disney did a bad job at recreating a new Winnie the Pooh story, but I thought they did fantastic! Some of the voices were changed for known reasons but you will eventually get used to them. If you think that you will be disappointed or were by this film than you are NOT a REAL fan of Pooh or Disney at all. This film deserves a award and that is final. It is great for all ages and as fun as the original classic! I think that we need to bring back Pooh in a big way, and I believe Disney has done so. Great bonus features as well. Five stars and no less!!!!!!!
Jnul - Wonderful
This is such a heartwarming film. Great for kids and adults alike. Highly recommend
Pete304 - Great Movie!!!
This movie is great and I have to say probably the best movie of the year... I recommend this movie to everyone I know. 5 stars and two thumbs up XD
loud girl13 - A-MAZ-ING!
This is simply beautiful!!!!! I loved it and I'm 13!!!!! Not as good as the original and it's kinda short but I enjoyed every second of it! they sure did a great job!! Highly recommend it to u no matter how old u are! The teens and adults will love the old good memories and the young and little kids will love the inspiring and adventure story of a new lovable bear who loves honey!<333 winne the pooh ;)
Diablothekitty - Ppl
First: I can't wait to see this movie... I'm going to find it somewhere and watch it. Second: I'm very upset with those ppl who are misspelling names. It is T-I-DoubleGrr!!! Tigger!!!
Pirate35 - Great, but...
The movie was fantastic for kids and adults alike, but I really felt they overdid the music. Too many songs were shoved into the film.
Your chosen one - Good change of pace.
This movie was brilliant. The story was pretty good. The kids as well as the adults can enjoy the humor. And it's nice to see a G kids movie for once. Even though I enjoy things with very dark and gritty storyline's such as Elfen Lied, Se7en, and Sin City. And I enjoy movies with confusing storyline's such as the Ocean trilogy, Inception, and Paranoia Agent. It is very nice to see something that is light hearted and easy to follow.
Lorelai IV - Happiness in a movie
I'm 21, and I watch this movie at least once a month. It brings back so many memories of watching Winnie the Pooh as a kid and it reminds you of the simple things to be happy about :)
"not knot?...Who's there?!"
Best movie ever.

Ana-Brit - A Classic Tale Revived
I have loved the stories of Winnie the Pooh my entire life (14 years). My first memory is a Pooh Bear cake on my 3rd birthday, and I've watched the Many Adventures film countless times. I have nothing to complain about this movie; I only wished it could have been longer. John Cleese made a refreshing narrator, and the other voices did just as well as the originals. Also the fact that they kept the traditional animation format and did not release in 3-D is another plus. The tale of the silly old bear has a special place in many hearts as well as my own, and I hope it will be remembered for generations to come.

When I saw this movie, I was transported back in time to my childhood years. It felt good to revisit that most precious time of my life. Your never to old for Winnie the Pooh.
terriedaniels - WHOA.
This movie was absolutely AMAZING. I was PUSHING little kids out of the way to see it! And I'm 15!! I used to watch this all the time as a kid and I was THRILLED when I saw they were bringing old Disney back<3
imratingthisforstars - awwwww
I *LOVE* it!!!! so sweet
Dee Micester - Now that's hand drawn
I did not see this movie yet but I plan to buy it. I always like to focus on more of 2D works. I am so sick of computer animation all the time and I hope that Disney my most favorite of my life would plan more of hand drawns like this. It what we all want!!!

WONDERFULPISTACHIOS - Adorable and funny!
Gosh, was it yesterday that I saw the classic TV series with Sterling Holloway as the famous bear? This movie was like a trip down memory lane for me. Amazingly done, and you don't need to be a kid to love it. Tigger, Piglet, and Roo were and are my favorite characters! If the last generation loved Pooh, then this generation would, too!
Joefox2003 - Why No Rental?
Why do many of the Disney movies, such as this one, have no option to rent them? How stupid is that? Why would I spend $25 on something I'm not even sure we're going to like? Not impressed.
Rshark7 - Amazing
Great movie for both child and adult. Very funny and worth the money.
Ella Bella Vanilla - Loved it, super cute,
I feel back in love with Pooh! Super cute, funny and perfect for any age. I watched the original Winnie and to be honest I loved this movie better
Aaron Reynolds - Engaging and fun
My kids, ages 7 and 5, have not been as engaged by anything, including Pixar films, as they were by Winnie-The-Pooh. They laughed a lot, and enjoyed the wordplay and goofy book/movie meta jokes. It was gentle and delightful, smart without being smart-alecky, and had ridiculous little side-jokes and throwaways (like the choir that sings HONEY when Pooh sees the honeypot). The songs are fun throwbacks, and the animation is quite imaginative, especially the chalkboard sequence. And it stays interesting for grownups without making jokes over the heads of kids or making pop-culture references.
Honestly, this is the purest, best Disney film made during my lifetime. Walt Disney would be proud. Great work, everybody.
anclarke - Too scary for my three year old
I just turned this movie off at my 3 1/2 year old daughter's request. She found it too scary. Granted, she may be a bit of a delicate flower without a lot of TV experience, but this is just a warning if you're planning on spending $25 like I just did on a movie for your little kids. It's not even going near my youngest daughter.
I generally stay away from Disney movies. I took a chance on this one and I wish I hadn't. Maybe they'll like it when they're older.
Crampof - Réconfortant
J'ai tout simplement adoré Winnie the Pooh. Mais pourquoi donc avoir un antagoniste, comme dans tous les autres classiques de Disney ou presque, qui viendrait chambouler le cours des choses ? Winnie the Pooh offre une approche sympathique et bien différente, se sont plutôt les personnages principaux qui créées les différentes péripéties de l'histoire, et ce, au fur et à mesure de celle-ci… En d'autre terme, il faut s'attendre à un film d'une originale simplicité. Simple, mais aussi très amusant, drôle, mignon et réconfortant à regarder. Chacun des personnages présentent une personnalité très différente les uns des autres, une manière toute simple de voir les choses qui me fait souvent bien sourire, je ne me lasserais jamais d'être en leur compagnie. Je recommande vivement d'acheter ce film (je préfère en anglais pour ma part), même aux septiques. On se sent bien en l'écoutant.
RDS1964 - winnie the pooh
As a children's theatre teacher the length is ideal. Most kids of the movies target audience have trouble sitting about 45-50 minutes. As adults we are used to high tec movies of substainal length. These movies have been written with 2 levels of humour: adult and kids. Pooh was written for kids, not the duel audience we have become used.
Icantbelieveitsnot.... - It was short and the kids liked it!
It is short, it is enjoyable and your kids will be introduced to the characters you remember from watching Walt Disney on CBC Sunday nights if you didn't go to Church. Popcorn on your lap watch that silly Poo Bear did for Honey. But I must say, I don't remember Piglet bugging me that much as a child or Owl being that dum...b. When it is cheaper, we will be buying to relive the memory of seeing it at a drive - in.
ErikZarins - Disney found their magic at last!!
Despite the fact it was short which was my disappointment
It was very cute and amazing!!!
If Disney makes another winnie movie.........make it LONGER!!!!!!!!!!!
Fresh? - YAYYYY!!!!
Even though this movie is short, it's still AWESOME!!!
It's definetly worth the 20$.
See you in the next movie Winnie, you silly old bear!
Bodybreacker111 - Memories
I loved whinnie the pooh when I was younger it brings back so many memories. Loved it just loved it😋😋😋😋😋‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️😋‼️
Fan of Darth - A bear of more than a little brain!
Seriously, i love Pooh Bear ALMOST as much as i love my bear Edward. The group of them together with Christopher Robin form an almost irresistible force of good and innocence that simply can't be denied.
This movie can obviously be enjoyed by the whole family but even adult, seasoned readers of the books can see a depth to the Pooh Universe that can't be seen in books. For example, the friendship between the animals is a joy to behold, and the bond between them is extremely obdurate. Of course the movie is funny as, the sound track is awesome (written and performed by New Girl star Zooey Daschanel) which makes the sound track worth buying, too. The only obvious flaw is a lack of love interest anywhere, but when you think about it, that is just silly.
So this movie is highly recommended. And Mr Disney, can we have another movie, please?
Bibbossa - Beautiful Movie

Im not going to lie, Im a 14 year old boy and I found this movie very humorous and enjoyable. Even my 17 year old brother liked it. Every scene had something unique about it. Poo was my favroite character in the movie (typical choice). I recommend this movie for the whole family.

and to the person that took up almost a WHOLE PAGE of my ipod, i mean come ON! this movie is 4 KIDS! u really hated it that much? it was cute. has it ever occurred to u that maybe the ppl who did the character's voices died? how could u b so stupid? this movie is for kids, not thirty-year-olds. just back off u'd think a thirty year old would have more common sense. loser.
anyway this movie was awesome:) cute, funny, adorable, and love the word backsun :P ♥
BBBAAABBBYYY DOLL - AMAZING
I loved it Winnie the Pooh made me laugh and tear up my all time fave
Kayla Hoffman - Dissapointed
I was so so so so excited when I saw this was coming out! I thought I was going to skip happily about and relive my childhood. Incorrect assumption! I rented it and quit watching it part of the way. The characters' personas weren't all quite right. Rabbit had a horrible voice and acted differently than his previous incarnations. The musical bits fell lame and useless. I felt like they were simply recycling plots from previous movies, and that it was painful to try and follow the flow of the movie. Why was Kanga suddenly vain and worried about her youth? Where was Gopher? The movie was just a bunch of loose ends, compiled of halfhearted schemes and the threads of my frayed and tattered heart.
Sea4 - Great movie
Why don't they bring Winnie the pooh back
Tmaxxtigger - Terrible remake of "The Search for Christopher"
Was really hoping for something different but it was a terrible remake of "The Search for Christopher " from 1997. The whole family was bored and could to wait for it to end, very disappointing, not worth $1.
jdogbropeace - Unbelievable
This movie is just plain awesome. It blew my expectations out of the water. Not only is it filled with good, clean, witty humor, but the songs (and the score) are so creative, so beautiful, so AWESOME! It's been a long time since I've seen a movie as good as this one.
Zig33367 - Awesome
Awesome movie hilarious, even though I'm twelve.
Swards - Not as good as the previous Pooh shorts
Not on par with The Honey Tree or The Blustery Day that came out in the '60s. Maybe nothing can really match those films, but previous reviews made it sound like it may be that good.
Overall, my 4-yo liked it. Worth renting.
dateaking - Amazing!
Just a utterly amazing movie! Walt must have touched it from above.
TriedOdin - Not the original it's true but still good
I have never been a fan of piglet so it was no surprise that he was annoying in this movie as well. I was on the other hand disappointed in owls performance he was very annoying through out the whole movie and could have flown out of that hole and got a rope. coward!
Aside from all that it was a very funny movie. I laughed so hard I cried! Eeyor and tigger were the best in this movie. Can't wait to go buy it and watch it again.
Kgamer:0 - Not the original but great!
The modern pooh bear is best friends with tigger and solves stupid mysteries, but the real pooh loves christopher robin and piglet. I think this movie rekindles the pooh we love best! Also great use of the song Somewhere Only we Know!
cuppitycake - what up with mean reviews on a sweet movie?
are people just bored and crabby - and need to write reviews to bash other reviews (not that I'm not doing the same).
No, this isn't the original - watch it as it's own movie. I prefer A.A. Milne to Disney, so any animated movies involving Pooh fall a tad short. However, this came close to the books in spirit.
Was Pooh selfish? Um, no.. he put off his needs until the end to help his friends... what movie were you watching? Piglet was always extremely nervous in the books. This was maybe a closer adaptation.
Does that specifically matter? Our whole family laughed together and left the theater happy. There were no ridiculously unnecessary sexual innuendos placed for adults - it was great.
We enjoyed it. The end.
Sogggyyy - Nice but...
To short but also to long. I remember that i liked the voices in the original better but I can't remember If it is my memory playing tricks on me. A tad to polished but I liked the animation. The songs bored me but they were catchy.
Lengua1 - OMG!!!!!
Im 14 and a girl. I loveeeeeeeeed the movie!!!! My mom said she will buy me it!!! I may a lil too old for this movie but i nvr will get old of that Pooh Bear and his jar of Huny!!!!! :) <33333333333
directorbear - Nearly indistinguishable from the original in terms of quality
A must see for any fan.
manoo305 - اشكر
بس لو خلوتو مجانة
EBradford - Nothing like the original beyond a few cosmetic similarities
Sorry to be the buzzkill here, but if any adults are hoping that this film will re-capture the magic of the classic, prepare to be disappointed. I never would have rented this if I hadn't read all of the (many) positive reviews on iTunes prior. I was just browsing iTunes and saw it in the top 100 list. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is one of my absolute favorite childhood movies, and this film was made to sound equally as good as the original. "It feels exactly like I'm watching The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh just longer [if I watch them back-to-back]". (That was from a review written by a mother in her mid-thirties!)
Of course I expected some obvious changes (voices) to be made to the characters, but I was kind of led to believe that this movie was going to bear (no pun intended) a tremendous amount of similarity to the original, especially since it is compiled from 5 A.A Milne stories, and the characters are touted to be almost identical in animation.
And they basically are (with the exception of Christopher Robin's generic new Disney eyes/makeover?) - as long as you're only looking at stills. But in motion, not so much. Pooh was very close, but the other characters failed to capture the feeling of their original counterparts- Rabbit, for example, is now drawn so frenetic and spazzy that I felt like I was watching looney tunes. Actually, all of the characters are drawn and act more and more looney tunes-ish as the movie progresses. Bulging eyes, tangles of limbs, crazy movements, etc.
And speaking of the way the characters act - this is not a timeless Disney classic that adults can enjoy. The tone, the feeling, the pacing - it's all wrong.
Because the characters act like they are mentally retarded.
I'm serious. They're like caricatures of their originals - Piglet is now spineless to the point of idiocy and seems genuinely stupid, not just timid and nervous as he was. Pooh, although he has the same voice (thank God), is no longer just sweetly daft and somewhat hungry, he's now comically moronic, so selfishly obsessed with his own needs, and seemingly so completely unable to control himself, that he jeopardizes himself and his friends to the point of ridiculousness. Frankly, I think 55 minutes of this behavior completely negates the 5 minute moral-of-the-story ending (ie Pooh's 180 and sudden ability to put his friend's needs first) and therefore also negates the message this movie is ultimately meant to deliver.
Look, I'm not usually cranky like this; I'm a pretty easy-going, happy person - I don't know why I'm so annoyed. I guess I just can't believe that people could possibly liken this movie, which should be so obviously meant for (very little) children and children only, to such a wonderful, timeless classic film that (and I speak from experience, having watched both today) is certainly at least tolerable, if not utterly lovely and enjoyable for adults to watch (which it is.) I don't like seeing these characters and stories re-done in such a dumbed down, cheap laughs/emotions/etc kind of way. It's a reminder to me of how low we set the standards for our kids now without even realizing what we're doing wrong.
I'm 30 years old and embarrassed to sound so much like Andy Rooney here, but ugh children's movies today are either just FILLED with un-funny tongue-in-cheek references meant for at parents (in lieu of even a semi-creative plot and/or legitimate, relatable characters), or so dumbed down, as is the case with Winnie the Pooh, that they are basically unwatchable for anyone over 6 years old. SO DUMBED DOWN. Actually even as a 6 year old, I'm pretty sure I'd be intellectually insulted to have to watch Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, Roo, Tigger, Eyeore, Owl, AND Christopher Robin award a honey pot to a RED BALLOON as a reward because they collectively think it (the balloon) has fixed Eyeore's tail. It is tied to the honey pot whilst the entire group tells the BALLOON "great job"; "thanks"; and "you're a hero". It's not a talking balloon, FYI. It's just a balloon. A f***ing balloon. By the time I arrived at this scene in the film, I wanted to wring the necks of every single one of my beloved characters for acting like such ***holes, and I know my six-year old self would have been just as frustrated as I was.
BUT, I know I need to get over it: this movie is just one of many out there making kids stupid and unable to think for themselves. In this case, stick with the subtler, sweeter, lovelier, and ultimately leagues more intelligent original. The original Winnie the Pooh is AMAZING. Good children's movies don't need to spoon feed their messages, and rely on impossibly over-dramatic/neurotic/timid/silly/retarded characters, to entertain.
Seriously, these garbage kinds of kid's movies make what I grew up with in the 1980's look good. And trust me, it's not like children's stuff was that great - but God does it look better in hindsight. Things like this Winnie the Pooh re-vamp just feel coddled and obvious and over-stimulating in the wrong ways while utterly negligent in the right ones.
This Winnie the Pooh just feels WRONG.
And it to compare it equally to the beloved original is completely WRONG.
I feel duped. But better now that I've let this all out, phew!
ChestyVulva - Great movie
The only thing that was disappointing was owl. Owl seemed like a totally new character :( but this was cute. John Cleese was perfect as the narrator.
Jeri in Granbury Tx. - Winnie the Phoo Movie
I'm 62 years old and Winnie The Phoo has been my favorite through seven grandchildren.You'll love it!
JoshuaO412 - Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am 16 and I went to go see this in the theaters and I was the only teenager in the theaters but I love Winnie the pooh <3
MellzBellz - Loved it!
This brings back memories and it was such a cute movie! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it's too short IMO :(
Your_highness213 - Great movie.
One question, does anyone know the name of the song used in this trailer?
Corndair - I've got a rumbly in my tumbly for more!
Being 16 years old, I'm pretty sure I was the oldest one in the theater without kids, and I was laughing as loud as any of the little ones were, if not louder. This movie is hilarious, (especially the "Knot" bit that was shown in trailers) heartwarming, and an all around good time. Plus, Owl is CRAIG FERGUSON. That's pretty darn cool.
Pikafan90 - Takes me back
Over 15 years ago, I used to watch the Winnie the pooh tv show, almost nonstop. The silly old bear brought me back with fun humor, the book affecting the cast, from Pigget cutting the rope into peaces. I was laughing so hard at Rabbit's frustration. Watching it was like a storybook that I used to read coming to live. I always knew of Pooh, and was reminded how great Winnie the Pooh, and Kanga and little Roo. With Tigger, Rabbit, and Owl.
It was like time traveling, capturing watching an old show, become new again.
(I'm 21 by the way.)
danny00003 - Classic
My kids are almost three and got most of it. I liked the way we through the characters are reminded that they live in a book with real words/ letters that tell the story and that Winnie and friends can climb on - love Winnie's love affair with honey - awesome!
Legoking1 - Childhood memories

Lolo fe - Winnie the pooh
Asome I loved winnie the every since I was a baby 1000000 stares
alec john - An hour of pure magic.
Probably the best example of an instant Disney classic. Wonderfully drawn. Witty and delightfully funny. Sweet and simple. And amazingly charming.
LittleMonster3 - AMAZING!
I am 13 and I went went to see this with one of my best friends (who is 14) and we totally LOVED it!!!!!!! It was amazing and very funny! I can't wait to buy it!
Oaksusu - Reboot is closer to "Heffalump" than more classic Pooh films
Animation is beautiful but the narrative pace seems faster than previous Pooh films. The characters are ones we're familiar with but Rabbit and Owl's voices didn't carry the weight of previous movies.
Chuzzzle - I luv piglet
He is soo awesome my favorite part was when they were stuck in the hole and piglet has a rope and he cuts it in to 6 peaces " now u can all get out!" lol lol and that owl flies out of the hole and back in!
