You could be forgiven in assuming that a modern Winnie the Pooh will be heavily targetted at toddlers, or worse still a shameless hollow parody of the original Disney adaptation 'the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh'. Thankfully such assumptions could not be further from the truth. Yes, there are many references to the earlier film (an obvious example being Pooh's trippy honey halucinations). Thankfully there is such a charm and wit to the proceedings that these similarities feel fresh and engaging, without swamping the narrative in lazy nostalgia. The humour of both the original adaptation and Milne's novels is present throughout. There were many gags that made me laugh at loud. I cannot think of a recent live action comedy film which so frequently hits the mark.

As many other reviewers have mentioned the animation is very traditional in style. The characters and backgrounds are reminiscent of Disney's works through the 60's and early 70's. This adds to the general impression that a lot of care and love has been dedicated to the final film, rather than the somewhat sterile feel that often typifies modern animation, whether CGI or hand-illustrated. I understand that the film industry is a business (the clue is in the name), but it would be fantastic if more films could exhibit the same levels of personal attention shown thoughout 'Winne the Pooh'. I hesitate to say it, but such attention to detail makes the case for film as an art form, rather than merely an entertainment industry.

I cannot recommend this film highly enough!

This is aimed at quite young viewers (it is much less sophisticated on a story level
than, for example, the amazing Pixar films), but as an adult I thoroughly enjoyed
it for the visual wit, and delightful wordplay - some of which was laugh out loud
funny - along with a simple, but beautiful hand animated look that fed the natural
nostalgia, and just felt "right".

The voice casting is excellent throughout. John Cleese as the narrator is the only star,
but everyone sounds just as they should.

A couple of the songs are a bit cute and sugary to an adult ear, but none are
painful, and some are quite funny.

I even enjoyed the lack of a real plot. Just as I remember the books, this had
the warm feeling of lightly passing imaginary, playful, fun time on a summers day.

We went through the Winnie the Pooh phase in our house, and I had to sit through The Tigger movie, the Heffalump movie, and the awful Piglet movie - all of which were Disney nonsense about your feelings, friendship, caring and sharing, utterly devoid of any of the cleverness, subtlety and humour of the books. It was a relief to discover The Many Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh, Disney's first attempt at bringing the Hundred Acre Wood to screen, which at least tried to capture the spirit of A.A. Milne's wonderful books. It was not perfect by any means, but compared with the other sugary stories it was quite good.

Anyway, this new film is very much in the style of the earlier film, and therefore it is not at all bad. The storyline is mostly drawn from the books, and the new jokes are actually funny enough. In general the characters are as Milne wrote them, rather than the Care Bears in disguise. Best of all, there was no moral, no message about believing in yourself, accepting differences or coming to terms with anything. And it wasn't too cute or lovey-dovey. Even Kanga showed a bit of her dark side. The songs were a bit rubbish, but you can't have everything.

This is not a ground-breaking film, and will probably not particularly appeal to adults without kids, but if you do have to sit down with your little ones you should find it quite watchable, and I'm sure they'll enjoy it too. Best of all it's quite short - only about an hour.

Surprisingly funny. Expectedly warm and cute. Good story. Comfortingly familiar feel and look. Well worth a watch. Kids and granny alike enjoyed it.

Me and my family watched this on Channel 5 recently and I can honestly say it wasn't the best. If you loved the original films then you'll be disappointed. "Winnie the Pooh" lacks an original plot and too many musical numbers. If you have seen "Winnie the Pooh's Most Grand Adventure" you will recognise the plot. Like "Winnie the Pooh's Most Grand Adventure", Christopher Robin leaves a note for Pooh and company but they misinterpret it and think that he is in danger. "Backson" in this film, "Skull" in "Most Grand Adventure".

The creators have obviously never seen a Winnie the Pooh film before because it has so many songs. The older films might have had the occasional song but this film has too many. I also didn't like the new Christopher Robin voice.

I'm not fully critical of this film. I'm happy that the animators stuck with hand-drawn animation and not the CGI that has dominated films and children's television. The jokes will make children and adults laugh.

Overall, it is a good film but I could live without the songs and desperately needs an original plot.
