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

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.

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.

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

The purple, elephant-like creature sports a sweet little British accent and a contagious laugh. He more than justifies his presence.
