Nothing in this film really stands out, it's one big non-event, but that means at least it won't ruin the memory of Pooh for older eyes, it's far too bland to do that.

Even at 73 minutes, the adventures of this feckless, hard-living bear feel overextended...

One: why does Pooh sound like an old man? Two: why does teenager Christopher Robin sound like a six-year-old? Three: what's with the rubbish songs?

The main feature lasts just 54 minutes, with the running time padded out by two unrelated, forgettable shorts and extended closing credits.

Occasionally, some clever lines emerge, but the movie mostly fails to charm.

Harmless, but unnecessary; it doesn't improve upon the 1960s shorts, and it's certainly no substitute for reading the original stories aloud with children...

Despite some superb songs and some impressive animation, this is ultimately disappointing, thanks to a general dumbing down of the characters, irritating voice work and a script that's guaranteed to annoy Pooh purists.

As a child I disliked everything about Christopher Robin, from his nanny's beautiful blue dressing gown on the door to his dim-witted friends Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger et al. My view has changed little over the years.

Guess you can't go back, even if your name is Christopher Robin.

The pity is that Disney hasn't returned to basics in the voiceovers.

Disney doesn't offer much here that it hasn't done as well before.

As childlike and as innocent as the audience it hopes to attract

I had no idea how much Winnie the Pooh meant to me until I saw this film.

Short and sweet, Winnie the Pooh positively refuses to outstay its welcome. It takes us by the hand and quietly reminds us of a simpler time when 3D and CGI were a mere twinkle in someone's eye.

[It] has a visual and emotional artistry that depicts the value of committed friendships, highlighting challenges that may come along. Yet what it expresses most of all is the sheer fun and joy these experiences can bring.
