Christopher Robin

Critics Consensus

Christopher Robin may not equal A.A. Milne's stories -- or their animated Disney adaptations -- but it should prove sweet enough for audiences seeking a little childhood magic.

All Critics (258) | Top Critics (42)

  • The film is charming, even with the usual Disney paw prints on the themes. Forster handles the comedy with skill and the sentiment with restraint.

  • A better title for this entry, the first of the Disney Poohs to be live action (although neither word in that phrase is an apt descriptor), would be Winnie the Pooh and the Unfilled Zoloft Prescription.

  • It's a delicious movie to see in these last, lazy days of August, when summer has slowed not quite to nothingness but at least to the bliss of a warm day that begins with a bird's song and ends without a worry as to what work has not been done by dusk.

  • A gently sweet film which, without realising its early melancholic promise, aims a little higher than the bear necessities required of a Disney merchandising cash cow.

    Aug 20, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • To say that 'Christopher Robin' is confused is an understatement.

  • For all the expensive honey drizzled over this script, Forster's film is just unpersuasively weird for an hour, before it tails off in the softest of focuses.

Audience Reviews for Christopher Robin

    Disney live-actions yet another one of their animated properties with Christopher Robin, an entertaining, lighthearted family comedy. When his Hundred Acre Wood friends go missing Winnie the Pooh goes looking for Christopher Robin to help him and finds that Christopher has grown up and has a family of his own now. Ewan McGregor and Hayley Atwell lead the cast, and Jim Cummings reprises his Winnie the Pooh characters that he voiced for the animated features. However, the plot is rather mundane (an overworked father learns to appreciate his family) and is full of tropes. Yet there are some touching moments and the comedy is pretty fun (though a little broad at times). Christopher Robin is an interesting take on this beloved franchise, but Winnie the Pooh works best in the Hundred Acre Wood in 2D animation.

    Not only was that so fuckin' cute, I also absolutely support its Oscar nomination for visual effects. Owl and Rabbit were less stellar, but all of the stuffed animals, most especially Whinnie the Pooh, looked incredible.

    A little slow moving but a treat for true Winnie the Pooh fans and it does a great job of mixing Milne's original work with Disney's adaptation .McGregor is great as Christopher Robin and the cvocal work of the characters makes the film. A sweet family film. 12-28-2018

    There is a moment within the opening credits of Disney's latest attempt to turn one of their classic animated properties into a live action ATM that hints at the devastating nature of our lives. It is fleeting and it, if only for a moment, says all it needs to say about what this movie aspires to be. As it passes though and as it becomes more and more apparent the film doesn't really know how to accomplish what its initial ambitions intended the film instead becomes all the more broad and all the more safe. This moment is one in which a young Christopher Robin (Orton O'Brien) comes to the Hundred Acre Wood for the last time. He is going off to boarding school, you see, and won't be able to visit his friends as often anymore. His friends being his stuffed toys, which include that silly ol' bear named Pooh (voice of Jim Cummings), the perpetually petrified Piglet (voice of Nick Mohammed), the ever-exuberant Tigger (also Cummings), the steadily gloomy Eeyore (voice of Brad Garrett), as well as Rabbit (Peter Capaldi), Kanga (Sophie Okonedo), her little Roo (Sara Sheen), and of course Owl (Toby Jones). Robin's toys know change is afoot and are throwing Christopher a farewell party of sorts in which treats-ranging from pots of honey to carrots, of course-are served and where even Eeyore is moved to make a speech. It is in light of the depressed donkey's surprisingly apathetic speech that Rabbit reacts to accordingly that we hear Cummings as Winnie the Pooh whisper a soft, "I would've liked for it to go on a bit longer." And just as fleeting as the moment itself is it simultaneously felt as if I'd been knocked over by a half ton barrage of scattered thoughts and emotions that reminded me just how fleeting time itself is. It's the one thing we can't get more of no matter how much wealth we possess or the circumstance of our lives; we all have a finite amount of time and Christopher Robin, in its first five minutes, exists to remind you that your children will grow and change just as you did and even though you feel you're different, that you're special, and that despite knowing it was a fact of life all along you were never really meant to grow old and become like your parents before you. Time truly waits for no man. This affected me to the point I wondered why I was sitting in a theater watching a movie when I should have been at home snuggling my three year-old daughter. In short, that would have been the more entertaining option of the two and certainly the more fulfilling one as it is only in this aforementioned moment that Christopher Robin was able to pull any genuine feeling out of me. And might I remind you, this is a movie wholly designed to pull on the heart and nostalgia strings. One moment. read the whole review at www.reviewsfromabed.com
