Pooh's Heffalump Movie Review


Points for a descriptive title: This is where Pooh and friends discover the Heffalump, a purple elephant heretofore thought to be mythical in the Hundred Acre Wood.

About an hour long, Heffalump didn't grab my two-year old, who thought the elephant was cute but then wandered away for programming on another TV where more actually happens.

The story involves a mysterious creature (see title) which may or may not be wreaking havoc around the 'Wood -- namely eating honey and messing up Tigger's painting. Is this xenophobia or is it really time for a manhunt? Er, elephanthunt? Soon a baby Heffalump is really found, and when Piglet tries to capture it with a rope he learns a small lesson in will vs. physical mass. Ultimately, the animals have to learn that the Heffalump is not their enemy but just another talking animal that wants to romp and play.

Songs are staid, and the story is decidedly obvious. After all, even a toddler found it too uninteresting to stick around.
