All of the Pooh clan: Pooh Bear (voice of Jim Cummings); Tigger (also voice of Jim Cummings); Rabbit (voice of Ken Sansom); Eeyor (voice of Peter Cullen); Piglet (voice of John Fiedler) set out into the horrible Heffalump Hollow next to the Hundred Acre Woods to find and capture the terrible Heffalump that has been terrorizing the Hundred Acre Woods with monstrous growls and bellows of unspeakable doom.
The whole clan set out on an "expetishun" with paraphernalia sure to capture whatever they find. All but Roo (voice of Jimmy Bennett) anyway. Mamma (voice of Nikita Hopkins) would not let little Roo go because he was too young and it might be too dangerous.
On a side note here, as Mamma Roo explained to Roo why he could not go, some of the finest parenting I have ever seen in film was displayed. Mamma Roo did not just tell Roo "No" but sat down with him (got down to his level), paid attention, smiled but did not laugh at Roo and was genuinely interested and in love as she spoke rational explanations as to why. As the "argument" went on, Mamma Roo used some very good distraction language to calm her riled son. Soon, Roo was sound asleep. The writers Brian and Evan are to be congratulated on this piece of pleasant viewing. Having fathered two kids, provided foster care for 29 kids (most of whom were about Roo's age) and having adopted seven of the foster kids (soon to be eight, all of which have gone through or will go through Roo's age), I hope my compliment about the parenting sensitivity of Brian and Evan is taken seriously.
God warns us about the foolishness bound in the heart of a child [Prov. 22:15], Against his mother's strict instructions little Roo decided he would strike out on his own to find and capture the dastardly Heffalump, a.k.a., Lumpy (voice of Kyle Stanger).
I'll not spoil any more of the plot or story of this 62 minute film and will offer a note that the only issues I suspect you might want to know about before deciding whether this film is fit for your little ones is that a "child" disobeys his mother [Eph. 6:2] and falls into mortal danger by doing so. God tells us our days will be long and safe during childhood if we obey mom/dad. [Prov. 3:1 - 2, Prov. 6:20]
Also, there is some property-damaging mischief among the residents of the Hundred Acre Woods. While this film clearly earned a final score at the top end of the scoring range earned by G-rated movies (100 to 86 out of 100) in the comparative baseline database, the slight cluster of notable behaviors in Impudence/Hate caused this film to require the display of the yellow CAPAlert light since at least one of the six CAP investigation area scores (Impudence/Hate - 84) fell below the threshold of 86, warranting your serious inspection of the listing in the Findings/Scoring section (see www.capalert.com/capreports/capcon.htm).

As always, it is best to refer to the Findings/Scoring section -- the heart of the CAP analysis model -- for the most complete assessment possible of this movie.

Wanton Violence/Crime (W)
Sexual Immorality (S)
Offense to God (O)
|There are some in the entertainment industry who maintain that 1) violent programming is harmless because no studies exist that prove a connection between violent entertainment and aggressive behavior in children, and 2) young people know that television, movies, and video games are simply fantasy. Unfortunately, they are wrong on both accounts." And "Viewing violence may lead to real life violence." I applaud these associations for fortifying 1 Cor. 15:33. Read the rest of the story. From our more than eight years of study, I contend that other aberrant behaviors, attitudes, and expressions can be inserted in place of "violence" in that statement. Our Director - Child Psychology Support, a licensed psychologist and certified school psychologist concurs. For example, "Viewing arrogance against fair authority may lead to your kids defying you in real life." Or "Viewing sex may lead to sex in real life." Likewise and especially with impudence, hate and foul language. I further contend that any positive behavior can be inserted in place of "violence" with the same chance or likelihood of being a behavior template for the observer; of being incorporated into the behavior mechanics and/or coping skills of the observer. In choosing your entertainment, please consider carefully the "rest of the story" and our findings.|
