4.0 out of 5 stars 2 out of 3 isn't bad, 16 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Winnie the Pooh Movie Collection (Winnie the Pooh Movie/ Heffalump Movie/ Tigger Movie) [DVD] (DVD)
My kids find all three films enjoyable, but sadly they're not of equal quality and so I can't give five stars.

I saw The Tigger Movie in the cinema many years ago. Tigger, who is feeling lonely and unloved, goes in search of his family, much to the concern of his friends. It's a lovely, funny story with exquisitely drawn backdrops, well written songs and emotional depth. Presented in storybook format, children are reminded of the franchise's literary roots, and there's plenty to keep adults happy.

The cast and characters return in Pooh's Heffalump Movie. The friends are worried by the intrusion of a heffalump into the Hundred Acre Wood, and are determined to neutralise this threat from the outside. However, it seems their fears may not be justified. The story is quite bold and refreshingly political, but not so grown-up friendly. While I never get bored of The Tigger Movie, this one becomes tedious quickly when watched every day for a week. I preferred Piglet's Big Movie, which is curiously absent from this collection, and that's not as good as Tigger either.

But then we get to Winnie the Pooh. This is the most recent Pooh movie and a veritable work of art. After one of Owl's classic errors in reasoning, the friends embark on a mission to save Christopher Robin from the grip of the terrifying Backson. With a mostly new cast (Jim Cummings remains as Pooh and Tigger), narration by John Cleese, and executively produced by John Lassetter, every moment of this film will raise a smile and a great many will get a laugh.

As a collection, this is worth buying for the two excellent films. It's just a shame that less effort was put into the other one.
