Critic Reviews for Piglet's Big Movie
The screenplay by Brian Hohlfeld incorporates three of the original Pooh stories but captures none of the charm of A.A. Milne's droll voice.
A flimsy flashback-ridden tale about the importance of friendship, loyalty and the notion that size doesn't matter when it comes to tackling seemingly insurmountable issues.
Fiedler brings his trademark high-pitched squeal to the beloved, childlike Piglet. The other voice actors are just as good, with each one providing great heart and verve for their respective characters.
Even those with a soft spot for Pooh won't find much to like.
It's a wonderful Piglet? Maybe not wonderful, but still pretty darn good.
Pooh finally returns to his roots a heartwarmingly gentle tribute to Milne that's appropriate for even the youngest viewers.
Piglet's Big Movie is what might be called second-rank Disney animation [but it] works, the kids will like it, and it provides a little escape from the news.
Piglet's Big Movie complements (rather than detracts from) the much-loved originals.
Unlike many feature length cartoons this one doesn't make any attempt to jazz up a classic tale with adult-friendly dialogue and plays strictly for kids. Most moppets should love the characters and incidents.
It may be Piglet's Big Movie, but it's a very minor entry in the Disney canon.
While young children are still likely to be entranced seeing their beloved characters up on the big screen, it never comes close to touching the child inside the grownups. And that's the real mistake.
It's a pleasure to let yourself feel no irony, no cynicism, nothing really but a sort of lulling contentment as you learn of the adventures had by a plucky little Piglet with a heart as big as anything.
Piglet's Big Movie is an agreeable, if fitfully entertaining, introduction to Milne's characters. But it's no substitute for going by the book.
It's a cute film that continues the tradition of the Winnie the Pooh series with simple stories and simple animation.
Audience Reviews for Piglet's Big Movie
"Piglet's Big Movie" manages to slightly mock classic Pooh characters while still keeping their wonderful charm. It has a good story and great jokes. The soundtrack is spectacular, and I don't even like the artist.More
