A relatively modest film but one that should entertain the very young - along with nostalgic parents and grandparents.
(Anna Smith, Time Out)
If you can handle the American accents, the faux-watercolour backgrounds capture the flavour of EH Shepard’s illustrations quite skilfully, and having the characters interact with Milne’s words on the page is a lovely touch.
(Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
Despite Pooh sounding ever so slightly like Vivien Leigh in A Streetcar Named Desire, the utmost homage is paid to Milne, EH Shepard's drawings and the joys of storytelling – Pooh merrily trotting across animated pages from the books. A gentle, modest pleasure.
(Peter Bradshaw, Guardian)
