A fun film for the kids, especially if they like Winnie the Pooh, is Tigger the Movie. The fast-talking, always bouncing Tigger feels increasingly lonely when he realizes that no one else in the world looks and acts like him. After 30 minutes of watching him jump around and talk continuously my nephew David said, “Thank goodness no one else is like him.” Tigger decides to write a letter to his family inviting them to come for a visit. Roo sees Tigger mailing the letter and knows that Tigger will be hurt when he doesn’t receive a response. So! Roo tells his mother Kanga, who asks the rest of the gang for help. Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, Roo and Kanga sit down and write a letter back to Tigger signing it, “From Your Family.” Tigger is so excited when he receives the letter that he spends several days cleaning up his house in anticipation of their visit. Of course, knowing that his family isn’t coming, Pooh and the gang dress up like a bunch of Tiggers, knock on his door, and announce that they are his family. Okay, sounds corny, but it’s for kids. Tigger is so happy he bounces off the walls – until he realizes that they aren’t his real family. He thinks they are making fun of him, so he runs away. Kids will really love this movie and most will want the soundtrack because of the cute songs. The down side is that it’s not very original and at times it’s very slow. My advice for dads – let mom take the rug rats to this one and you find something else to do like take out the garbage, paint the house, or even remodel the kitchen. Any of these would be preferable to sitting through this movie. I give it a B rating.
This movie has been given a G rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
