Heffalump may have hummable songs by Carly Simon. But it's about two and a half lumps shy of being any good.

There's not a scrap of Milne left, at this point.

Pooh's Heffalump Movie exists to introduce a new character that can be sold as a stuffed animal at Disney Stores.

Apparently the Disney folks don't even bother with A.A. Milne anymore. They just borrow his characters and do with them what they will -- which mostly means cramming toy stores with plush Poohs, Piglets and Eeyores.

Nothing more than a less charming rehash of the original Tigger tale.

[It] may entertain easy-to-please younger children while disappointing more knowledgeable kids and parents.

Adults will become fidgety in the first 15 minutes, nervously checking their watches to see when the next Pixar movie is coming out.

Making this your kids' first Pooh experience would be like weaning them on New Coke.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

The proper place for this barely feature-length rehash of Poohism is home video (which was the producers' original plan), not the big screen.

In contrast to Tigger and Piglet, Lumpy offers fewer incentives to take a trip to the theatre to make his acquaintance.

Updating classics to meld with the sensibilities of the current era is only forgivable when the modernization truly honors the source and adds to the enjoyment. Pooh's Heffalump Movie does neither.

So insubstantial that it practically evaporates on screen, Pooh's Heffalump Movie likely will play best with toddlers and pre-schoolers easily amused by bright colors, merry songs and lovable, huggable toontoon animals.

As fare for families with young children, this is a completely pleasant and harmless time-pass, but other viewers should simply pass.

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

Newcomer Kyle Stanger, who was just five when the movie was made, gives Lumpy so much personality and charm that every child will want a heffalump playmate of of his own.
