Our whole family was super excited when we were invited to preview Disney’s Christopher Robin at Southday AMC. Even though we had to drive through rush hour traffic to the south side of the metro, it was worth the effort.
In Disney’s heartwarming live action adventure, the young boy who shared countless adventures with his stuffed animal friends in the Hundred Acre Wood has grown up and lost sight of what’s important in life. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin rediscover the joys of family life, the value of friendship and to appreciate the simple pleasure in life once again.
-Disney’s Press Release
From the previews, I was very curious about this movie and knew I wanted to see it. I still didn’t know, however, what to expect. I expected this film to be heartwarming, tender, and sweet. And it is all those things. But it is also entertainingly funny.
Pooh is on a search for his friends, and more importantly, in his quest, Pooh reminds Christopher Robin what is significant in his own life. And of course, in the midst of the adventure, Pooh ultimately helps Christopher Robin solve his own puzzle.
Christopher Robin is in the style of the classic Winnie The Pooh stories we know and love. It is a work of fiction; it is not the real Christopher Robin’s memoir.
It’s a hilarious story that you will enjoy with everyone in your family.

Parental Guidance for Christopher Robin
The film is rated PG. I was very comfortable with my kids watching it. I don’t remember mature content or crude language. However, there were a few intense scenes including a loud war scene and a couple of eerie scenes revolving around heffalumps.
I would recommend this movie for kids over 5. Our youngest is eight and enjoyed everything about it. But like I said, there were some slightly intense scenes.
The one-liners in this film made the whole experience incredibly fun. I would go again in a heartbeat. I loved the humor and the huggable Pooh Friends and Christopher Robin’s family.
