Director Marc Forster helmed this live action movie that features English author A. A. Milne’s best loved characters as walking and talking stuffed animals. Ewan McGregor stars as a middle-aged Christopher Robin, now burdened by an stultifying white collar job that prevents him from spending quality time with his family. Winne the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger venture from Hundred Acre Wood into London to turn his life around.~Augustine Chay
I always enjoyed the Winnie the Pooh characters as a kid. This movie tells the story of an adult Christopher Robin dealing with life's struggles. It is a sweet movie that makes you feel good at the end. I would recommend this movie for somebody looking for a sweet family film
Oh I did love this move, Evan has such an unassuming personality that he lifts any movie he is in. This movie does not need lifting, it is a heartfelt warm family movie. Another great movie for the family to enjoy over and over during this unfortunate lockdown.
I have always liked Winnie the pooh, so to see this movie after growing up with the show as a child, it had all the elements of the cartoon, and it hits you right in the feels.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Delightful Family Film
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
When I saw this movie in a theater last year, I enjoyed it very much. I like Ewan McGregor, and he was very good as the grown-up Christopher Robin who is so busy with his job that he's not enjoying his life and his family. The voice actors who portrayed Pooh, Eeyore, and the others did a fine job, especially for those of us who remember the Winnie the Pooh cartoons. I bought the Blu-ray rather than the DVD because it had some extra features that I knew I'd like about the making of the movie. With a movie like this that combines live actors with animated stuffed animals, it's interesting to find out how things were done so effectively. This is a sweet and fun movie. It reminded me a little of those other Disney films about Mary Poppins, who also straightens out fathers who need to lighten up and pay more attention to their children.
