Movie Info

A.A. Milne's famous stuffed bear and his pals learn something about acceptance and understanding when a new animal comes to the Hundred Acre Woods in this animated comedy. When Winnie the Pooh (voice of Jim Cummings) hears a strange noise in the woods, he and his friends are convinced that the dreaded Heffalump -- a critter not unlike an elephant -- has come to the woods to do them harm. Pooh, Piglet (voice of John Fiedler), and Tigger (also voiced by Cummings) set out to capture the fearsome

Lessons are duly learnt about fear of the unknown, and it's a sweet enough tale, if lacking in tension.

During a time in which wall-to-wall pop culture references have become the standard in animated family fare, it's refreshing to find not a single drop of irony here.

While kids older than 8 may be too jaded to sit through this cute flick, at just over an hour, it may be the perfect fit for first-time filmgoers.

It's lightweight and pleasant entertainment for very small children, short and careful not to wear out its welcome.

For childhood's sake, take your little guys and gals to see this movie -- you won't be disappointed.

It's a slight affair, but the cute Heffalump and some cartoon slapstick are endearing enough to its target audience.

One of the most delightful, family-friendly animated films in some time.

A cute little cartoon that ought to please very young children.

It's as notable for what it isn't as for what it is, but in a field full of loud, obnoxious fare, its easygoing affability qualifies as a welcome change of pace.

The quaint, watercolour cell-animation works nicely, and the characters of Roo and Lumpy the baby heffalump are winning and beautifully voiced.

If I can't say I'm looking forward to the next one, neither can I ignore the medicinal properties of Pooh's latest big-screen outing.

Oddly enough, about the first half of Pooh's Heffalump Movie could be thought of as the children's version of The Village.

The film will keep children amused without proving too much of an ordeal for grown-ups.

Pooh's Heffalump Movie is a simple, innocent winner with amazing vocal talent, entertaining music and an important lesson for kids.

I'd take Carly Simon and Pooh any day over Ice Cube and the Hateful Little Maggots of "Are We There Yet?"

I enjoyed it, considering it was Winnie the Pooh and all, but I think they could have done a lot better.
