Winnie the Pooh

(G) ★★★☆☆

Disney’s latest revival, and musical homage, to A.A. Milne’s lovable bear is longer on charm than it is on laughs. Sad old Eeyore (voiced by Bud Luckey) has lost his tail, and the gang makes various plans to round up a replacement. Voice actor Jim Cummings does a great impersonation of Sterling Holloway, the original Pooh, and the direction makes for a gentle and warm introduction to the cineplex for all the little tykes out there.

By Tribune Media Service

This Tom Hanks-directed (and co-produced and co-written) rom-com is the neediest movie of the year, and one of the phoniest. Julia Roberts plays a washed-up community college instructor. Hanks plays a washed-up, laid-off divorcee who returns to school and winds up in guess who’s class. The problem here is the script, co-written by Nia Vardalos of My Big Fat Greek Wedding fame. It’s dull, unfunny and too generic to be enjoyable. I like Hanks and Roberts in general, but this reeks of A-list slumming.
