"A Valentine For You" is the better of the two features. When Owl tells the gang that Christopher Robin has been bitten by a smitten, a bug that causes love sickness, they go on a quest to find another one because they believe that if another one bites him, it will cancel out the first bite.
"Un-Valentine's Day" was an episode of the hugeley popular "The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" series. Rabbit decides to cancel Valentine's Day because Pooh sent everybody too many valentines the previous year. But when Pooh receives a pot of honey, he tries to find out who sent it and return the favor. Without commercials, this episode is only 21 minuites long. So to make this feature an even 30 minuites, they added a shorter episode from the series, "Three Little Pigs," in which Pooh tells the classic fabel as only he can.
The DVD is 60 minuites long and the bonus feature is a game called "Catch the Love Bug." This DVD is perfect for kids and Pooh fans alike.
The DVD itself is simply horrid. The mastering in fine, it's the menus that are just the worst thing I've ever seen. There are 1-2 minute introductions to every menu.
Let's say I want to watch the first feature... I have to sit through the first menu for at least a minute while it explains the that there are two different features...a minute of this...Can I fast forward through it? No, however mastered the DVD decided that I should not be able to fast forward through this idiotic introduction. Ok, fine...I'm through to the next menu...this should be fine...but no...I have to sit through another introduction telling me if I want to play the movie I should select the play option and then it goes on about the other options...do I care? no. Do the children who have been crying for 10 minutes about the darn DVD not playing care? No. I just want the stupid movie to play.
This DVD includes the two Winnie the Pooh Valentines Day Episodes/Videos on one DVD. Both movies are great to watch during Valentines Day, Great For All Ages. You and your kids will love it.
The content is fine and the mastering is good.
I'm perfectly capable of listening to and following directions. The 'how to play a DVD for Dummies' menu dialog is really long, and you have to listen to a fair bit of it before it explains that you can skip the instructions by using the "double right" arrow button. Kind of a vague instruction, since most DVD players have a Skip forward button, a slow search button, and directional buttons. It's iritating for me and my kids. I'd rather buy the 2 titles in this double feature separately to avoid this horrible menu system. Also, once you've watched one of the features, it returns you to the title menu of the same feature you just watched instead of back to the main menu where you can select the other title. I've yet to figure out how to bypass this without turning the DVD player off and on again.
That being said about the DVD, the movies are cute. In 'A Valentine for You' we see Christopher Robin making a valentine for a girl. Pooh thinks his friend has an illness of some kind and wants to make his friend well again by catching the 'smitten' that CR has been plagued with. We also get to see Owl fumble through explaining the difference between boys and girls to the rest of the 100 Acre Wood friends. Sweet songs in this one, too.
In an 'Un-Valentine's Day' Rabbit decides to cancel Valentine's Day because Pooh sent out too many last year, causing a huge mess in the 100 Acre Wood. But when a Valentine pot of honey arrives on Pooh's doorstep, he leads to the assumption that Piglet sent it to him. Soon everyone is secretly giving Valentines to one another behind Rabit's back.
