Pooh's Heffalump Movie

Those adorable little animals from the Hundred Acre Wood are back and they're still as cute as can be. Watching Winnie the Pooh and his friends is also one of the best ways for children to learn about life's lessons.

Take the kids, it's a must. Take your spouse! "Pooh's Heffalump Movie" is just as touching as the other "Pooh" movies. It had me laughing out loud and crying rivers of tears all by myself.

Pooh is still his cuddly, honey-loving self and Rabbit is still as paranoid about his priceless vegetable patch. Tigger still bounces all over the show and Piglet is still as timid and pink as ever. And don't forget Eeyore, who also makes a small appearance.

A.A. Milne's "Winnie the Pooh" has been a family favourite since 1926. Director Frank Nissen does a wonderful job maintaining the warmth of the original characters and ensures the "Winnie The Pooh" stories will continue to delight and entertain the whole family.

Jim Cummings reprises his role as the voices of both Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, while the two-time Oscar-nominee Brenda Blethyn voices the role of Mama Heffalump.

Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit and Tigger set out to capture the terrifying Heffalump after being wakened by his monstrous rumblings. Little Roo is considered much too young to join them, so he decides to go on his own adventure and turns out to be much more successful than his friends.

Roo meets Lumpy - a young and playful Heffalump (the sweetest purple elephant you'll ever see), and learns that accepting the differences of others is for our own benefit. In learning that valuable lesson, Roo also gains a marvellous friend.

Roo and Lumpy try their best to resolve their unfounded fears with their families and friends. Pooh and the gang finally manage to capture the 'scary' Heffalump and discover that Lumpy is more afraid of them than they are of him.

They learn that even though Lumpy is bigger than them, he's just a youngster who also needs his mom.

Pooh's Heffalump Movie features four original songs by multi-award winning singer and songwriter Carly Simon with a score composed by Joel McNeely.

It's one of those films that makes you want to sing along to the humpety-plumpety songs and you'll leave the movies with that warm fuzzy feeling.

This heart-warming reminder of the lessons of life proves that Winnie the Pooh and his friends are still as adorable as ever. A must see for the young and also the young at heart.
