Pooh and pals go on another charming adventure

Bucking the trend of so many maligned reboots and remakes, this subtle and charming animated movie is a delight for young and old fans.

Pooh is once again hungry, and on his quest for honey in the Hundred Acre Woods he bumps into Eeyore, who's lost his tail. Again. But their journey is put on hold when Owl (voiced by Craig Ferguson) misreads a note: Christoper Robin may have been kidnapped by a monster.

The familiar plot remains faithful to Pooh’s character, world, and heritage, and John Cleese sets the perfect tone with his eloquent narration. Veteran voice actor Jim Cummings is once again great as Pooh and Tigger, but some of the newcomers -- especially Tom Kenny, best known as SpongeBob SquarePants – sound a bit off. Vocal issues aside, Winnie the Pooh is charming, funny, and (best of all) short enough for the littlest ones to sit through. --Ben Gifford
