Winnie the Pooh ~ In Theaters NOW!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending an early screening of Winnie the Pooh. The whole family went and we all loved it. If you're my friend on Facebook you've seen me raving about what a wonderful movie this is. Many kids movies have crude humor that only adults (or older kids) would "get". I often find myself thinking "Wow, it's a good thing the kids didn't understand that joke!" There wasn't any questionable language, either, which made this froggy mama very hoppy!

Winnie the Pooh is exactly what a good, clean cut, classic Disney movie is all about. The length of the movie was just perfect for the younger viewing audience. There was lots of silly humor that had even the adult viewers giggling.

Much of the movie is about Pooh trying to find some honey to fill his grumbling tummy. However, one of my favorite scenes is of Owl reading a letter from Christopher Robin. He got some words mixed up and suddenly everyone was getting prepared to capture the "Backson" (if I spelled that right?)! It brought just enough adventure to the movie to keep it alive.

I also very much enjoyed how the story book was incorporated into the movie. The narration was engaging and refreshing. Seriously, I cannot rave enough about this movie. It has it all and is pleasing to the entire viewing audience.

Below is a humorous clip that I think you'll all get a chuckle from.

If you've seen Winnie the Pooh in theaters I'd love to hear what you thought about it! If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it. It's a "must see in theaters" kind of movie, in my opinion.

I went to an early screening of Winnie the Pooh in Brick, NJ. No other compensation was received. All opinions expressed within this review are 100% my own.

I can't wait to go see Winnie the Pooh! My son, who's into action-filled movies like Cars2, even said he really wants to go see it. You can't imagine how excited I was to hear that. lol! I grew up with Winnie the Pooh stories, too, and even decorated his baby room with classic Pooh. Thanks for the great review! Makes me want to see if even more. I hope we can make it to the theater!

I loved Pooh as a kid and am glad to see this come out! Sadly we'll have to wait for the DVD but glad to hear they kept it in line with classic Pooh humor and antics!
