As all children do, Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) is growing up.

As Christopher is heading off to boarding school, Pooh, Tigger, Eyore and the rest throw a going away party knowing they may never see Christopher Robin again.

And they are mostly right.

Christopher Robin has grown up. He is married to Evelyn (Hayley Atwell), has a daughter, Madeline (Bronte Carmichael), he fought in WWII, and is now working at a high-end luggage manufacturer in London.

The luggage manufacturer needs to cut costs and they leave it up to Christopher to decide how to manage the budget, and who to lay off. The stress is unBEARable, and the family has to go for the weekend to his house in Sussex (near the hundred acre wood) without him.

Christopher Robin has chosen work over family.

That is when Pooh shows up and shows Christopher Robin that life, even as an adult, really should be about hunny, balloons, and family first. (Life Lesson: The companies do not give a hoot about you and will lay you off in an instant if it suits their needs).

“Christopher Robin” is a very good movie with a message for adults and fun, Winnie the Pooh and friends characters, for the kids. Both adults and kids laughed out loud in the theater, though, sometimes, at different times.

“Christopher Robin”  is both an adult movie for kids, and a kids movie for adults. No wonder why the stressed out critics can’t quite figure it out: They are probably closer to kid than adult….and do not quite see the adult side, but, kinda might be getting the hint.
