Where: Netflix
Rating: PG
Release Type: Theatrical

Cast:
+10 for Ewan McGregor. I don’t think I could have finished watching this movie with a lessor actor.

+5 for Hayley Atwell. She is one of my favorite actresses, but she really doesn’t have much to do in this movie.

+5 for Bronte Carmichael. She was perfectly charming as Christopher Robin’s daughter.

+5 for Brad Garrett as Eeyore. His voice was pure perfection for our favorite, lovable depressed friend.

Score: 25

Production (Writing/Directing/Soundtrack, etc…):
+10 for many funny lines throughout the movie.

-5 because it took a solid 30 minutes before the movie became interesting. I’ve actually started this movie twice in the past week. Eventually the payoff was worth it, but it took entirely too long to get there. At the 20 minute point I sought out a friend’s review to see if it was truly worth sticking around for. He’s a Disney nerd and I figured if he had good things to say about it; it was worth sticking around for. By the time I had read the review; the movie had finally started picking up. But oye.

+10 for the scenery and costuming. Absolutely beautiful scenes and the costumes were fun to see.

Score: 15

Other:
+1 for seeing again. I’d see it again; but I wouldn’t seek it out. I do think this would have been more fun seeing with other people.

+4 for family friendliness. I’m not entirely sure why its rated PG, to be honest.

+5 for Eeyore. Oh mylanta did he have some great lines and moments.

Score: 10

I wasn’t really raised on Winnie the Pooh, so the story doesn’t hold a place in my inner child (now Raggedy Anne on the other hand….).

Total Score: 50
