Disney's dumbed down versions of A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh stories have always lacked the dry humour intended for adults, but I was pleased to see how much this film incorporates from the originals. The plot follows an adult Christopher Robin ( who was a real person 1920-1996 and his last name was not Robin) re-learning what it's like to be a child. The same theme can be found in the awful film Hook (1991) and even Mary Poppins (1964), but it works well here. The semi-imaginary animal characters are incorporated into reality as quickly as Paddington and I think this was handled rather well. Suitable for children but also intended for nostalgic adults. Do re-read the original stories!
