You have seen this movie before.
The only difference is that the thing that reminds our busy business man that life isn't all just business isn't Christmas. It's Winnie the Pooh! And our busy business man isn't just anybody, it's Ewan McGregor!
So, to be completely honest with you, those things made Christopher Robin different enough for me to enjoy. It's a sweet enough movie, and I really can't bring myself to complain about it. I love watching Obi-Wan run around with his cute little bear, and like... Can you honestly blame me for that? Could you blame anyone for that?
Christopher Robin is all grown up, and he needs to help Pooh, so he can help him help himself. (Yeah.) It goes off almost exactly like you think it will, and that's just fine. I don't need this movie to reinvent the wheel. I just need it to be heartfelt, sweet and well-made. And it's all of those things.
