A thoroughly enjoyable film for the whole family! My husband and I made a quick decision to take the whole gang to see the film the day after it opened. Our five children range in age from 7 years down to 16 months, and ALL enjoyed the experience! I especially enjoyed watching our 3 year old - since this was his first "movie theater experience" - with his eyes rivoted to the screen and munching on his popcorn. He never squirmed; he simply loved every minute of it!

The baby Heffalump (a.k.a. Lumpy) had the sweetest voice and moved me to tears at times. The friendship that Roo forms with Lumpy teaches wonderful lessons to children about getting to know a person before judging them as someone to be feared or avoided. Even the gesture by Lumpy's Mom (near the end of the film)was sincerely touching as she put her trunk around the shoulders of Roo's mom Kanga.

Our children have just loved watching "Piglet's Big Movie" and "The Tigger Movie" repeatly on TiVo where we have it recorded - as well as the series "The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" ( I truly enjoy listening to them laugh and laugh as they view these episodes!) "Pooh's Heffalump Movie" will have this family anxiously awaiting it's DVD release!

Most highly recommended!

My wife, myself and our 5 and 3 year old just returned from watching this. We had been anticipating this film for sometime. This film was certainly worthy of our anticipation.

Pooh's Heffalump movie teaches valuable lessons about acceptance, prejudice and growing up. Beyond that it is a throughly entertaining and literal romp in the woods for the whole family.

While Pooh's name is on the title the star of this movie is really Roo. Roo is ultimately the catalyst of change in the film and carries the day very well.

In my opinion Pooh's Heffalump movie surpasses Piglet's big movie as the 2nd best Pooh movie of all time (Nothing in my mind will ever supplant The many of adventures of Winnie the Pooh as the best film in all of Poohdom). Not to give anything away, but I would encourage everyone who sees the movie to stay and watch the closing credits as there is a wonderful homage to Many Adventures that was laugh out loud funny.

As we were leaving the theatre my kids were already lobbying (no pun intended) to see the film again and again. And unlike many films kids want to watch over and over I wouldn't mind joining them.

This is an awesome movie! Disney has really out done themselves with this Winnie the Pooh movie. This is my favorite out all of them. Why? 1.It adds 2 new characters to the One-Hundred Acre Wood which I was hopin the tigger movie would do. 2.It teaches alot of great lessons. 3.Lumpy is the cutest character ever! Im 13 and I enjoyed this movie. Other 13 year olds will say "Hes done seeing that movie" but even when I turn 110, I will Love Winnie the Pooh. Lets hope the next movie will be even better!

We bought this movie for my toddler son (2 1/2 years old). He loved it at first... until he became old enough to recognize the facial expressions on the characters.

The fact is, your old pals Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Rabbit have NO FUN in this movie. They start off worried and progress through terrified to angry to contrite. Even Roo and the new friend Lumpy are pretty miserable for at least half the time. The "fun" of this movie comes from understanding how silly the "grown-ups" are acting... if your child is old enough to understand those jokes, then he or she is old enough for you to worry about these mixed messages:

--Miss Piglet and Ms. Rabbit? Piglet awakes in his frilly bedroom, wearing a ruffled, pink sleeping mask. Rabbit comes out of his hole in a pink sleeping robe with curlers in his ears. What's the message here? If you're small and timid, you're effeminate? If you're a worry-wart and a know-it-all, you're also effeminate? Or is it just "funny" to dress like a girl?

--Roo knows best. Roo disregards Rabbit's instructions to stay home and sneaks out without telling his mother where he's going. He's also the best at lassoing skills, and wiser in his attitude toward heffalumps. The other grown-up "males" (Kanga and Mrs. Heffalump are wise and helpful) are frightened, foolish, and inept.

--Roo, the worst kind of friend. When he meets up with Lumpy, Roo talks Lumpy into disobeying his mother - twice! First Roo convinces him to ignore her calls and come with Roo instead, and the other time he talks Lumpy into crossing over a fence to an area Lumpy's not allowed to be in. He also manipulates Lumpy into "meeting his friends", when he really just wants to show off his captured heffalump.

This is the first movie we took our 3 year old to and she loved it. Usually movies have something that seems a little too scary for the little ones, but this one didn't. Nothing too intense or too serious. A great addition to the other Pooh classics.

Wonderful movie for the young, I strongly recommend this one for the 1 to 7 set, give or take. The story is pretty basic, but has a deep moral underpinning, that being that other people, who may be different or scary to us, are really, most probably, just a lot more like us than we realize. Roo becomes friends with a young heffalump, and in the process breaks down some of their, and their friends, preconceptions and prejudices.

Roo and Lumpy, the young heffalump with a strange accent, are really the stars here, much of the flick surrounding their meeting and interaction, however, Pooh, Rabbit, Tigger and Piglet and others all are part of the adventure too.

While the story line may sound a bit advanced, at its core, it's just a story about two young people becoming friends, and I don't think it's too advanced, because of the basic dialogue and wonderful animation, for the very young, in fact, I think kids much beyond seven or eight will probably be thinking that the movie is too immature for them.

I took my almost four year old daughter to see this flick, she was a little reluctant because she wanted to see that Zebra movie again (she's seen it twice already, enough, I'll buy the dvd) but once she sat down and the Pooh movie started, she didn't move from her seat. This is a great grandparents-take-the-kids to the movies flick, it's fairly short, non-controversial, nothing objectionable, etc. I give it a big recommendation.
