Movie Reviews

A 'Must Have" Movie for Winnie the Pooh Lovers!
Artist & Author | Near Mt. Baker, WA | 07/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Every family that has a child who loves Winnie the Pooh should have this movie. It is the true story of the little real-life bear that inspired the stories. There is one war scene that might be too much for younger children, but I'd think kids from five year old and up, who watch it with their parents who can reassure them if they become frightened of the war, should be able to enjoy it. There is no objectionable language or questionable behavior shown; it truly is a film that both the kids and their parents can really enjoy."

"A heart warming story about the real Winnie-the-Pooh who lived in the London Zoo after her owner went to fight in the 1st world war. A film to be watched over and over again providing you have lots and lots of tissues. One of our favourite videos."
Absolutely Charming

"A really wonderful story about the real "Winnie". For anyone who loves Winnie the Pooh, this is a must for their library. The acting is first rate, and the movie is populated with well known British actors such as David Suchet (Hercule Poirot), Stephen Frye (Gosford Park), Michael Fassbender (Gunpowder, Treason & Plot, Hex), and Canadian Gil Bellows (Shawshank Redemption, Ally McBeal), and I forgot to mention the wonderful bear cubs, and the California Black Bear who is the grown up Winnie. A lot of love went into this movie, and it shows. The extra on the training of the bears could have been longer."
