Piglet's Big Movie ★★

Let's get the important stuff out of the way fist: Piglet's a cutie-pie, love him.

Okay. I have a nasty feeling we should look at the books for this one, because this cost $46m somehow. Unless Carly Simon pulled down $25m to write and perform the songs, that budget cannot possibly explain the quality we see on screen.

...also I like Carly Simon as much as the next person, but when the movie ends, it abruptly cuts to live-action footage of Carly singing the "A Few Good Friends" number with her guitar filmed on DV tape in somebody's backyard while the credits roll. What. It felt like that wedding concert scene at the end of the Lohan/Curtis Freaky Friday movie, but after a Winnie the Pooh movie. I'm so confused.
