Critic Reviews for Pooh's Heffalump Movie
Lessons are duly learnt about fear of the unknown, and it's a sweet enough tale, if lacking in tension.
As comforting and warm as a tummy-full of oatmeal.
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.
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.
A kind of family fare that is rare on the big screen these days.
Audience Reviews for Pooh's Heffalump Movie
"They're the dreadfully dreaded, thoroughly three-headed, fiercely ferociously, mostly atrociously, horribly hazardous, Heffalumps!" Not! Pooh's Heffalump Movie breaks away for the usual series formula in favor of a heavy handed message about prejudice that takes all the fun out of the film. When Heffalump tracks are discovered in the Hundred Acre Wood the gang forms a lynch mob, but while on the hunt Roo finds a young Heffalump and the two quickly become fast friends, and discover that neither of them are the monster that each had been led to believe. Demystifying the Heffalumps and turning them into cuddly elephants is a terrible move; not only does it make them less interesting, it takes away one of the few threats/dangers of the Hundred Acre Wood. But worse than that, there's really not that much humor to the film; as it tries to get by mostly on cuteness and charm. And completing this trainwreck is Carly Simon, who provides some bland and unimaginative songs with no heart. Shallow and vapid, Pooh's Heffalump Movie has none of the magic of the previous Winnie the Pooh films.
Though not the best Pooh film, it is still delightful, and adorable, with good animation and humor. Overall Rating:73
I enjoyed it, considering it was Winnie the Pooh and all, but I think they could have done a lot better.
