A working-class family man, Christopher Robin, encounters his childhood friend Winnie-the-Pooh, who helps him to rediscover the joys of life.
Animated Adventure Comedy - While a story featuring Winnie the Pooh and a grown-up version of the
title character, the tone and plot for this film is aimed more at an
adult audience. That said, this is clean viewing for family members
of all ages. Fans of Ewan McGregor will be pleased though Hayley
Atwell fans may be disappointed by her fairly small role.

Roger EbertFull Review Average Even at its most amusing—and there are moments when it is downright hilarious—"Christopher Robin” can't reconcile its darkness and its light. But if these folks want to write an Eeyore movie that stays firmly planted in the Wood, I'll be first in line to see it.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average There's no end to the schmaltz in Winnie the Pooh's honey pot, yet Disney's live-action "Christopher Robin" also tosses in enough charm and tomfoolery for a sufficiently delightful hang with the iconic bear.
Rex ReedFull Review Poor ...there has never been a more morose or less lively a rendering than Christopher Robin. ...the actor is never able to muster enough of his trademark sense of wonder to lift up what amounts to a profoundly joyless exercise in brand extension.
Slant MagazineFull Review Average Christopher Robin never feels playful so much as rueful. Unlike the red balloon that Pooh follows through much of the running time, the film lacks lightness. The choreography between animated fantasy and live-action reality sorely wants for a natural sense of rhythm.
