    All three [flashbacks] derive from A.A. Milne's original tales, but retain only a smidgen of his droll, easy-chair wit.

    In the knockabout world of animated movies, Piglet's Big Movie is an oasis of gentleness and wit.

    A summer-holiday movie for very little kids.

    Poor Piglet doesn't gets his due on Pooh Corner, nor does he in this movie.

    It's a wonderful Piglet? Maybe not wonderful, but still pretty darn good.

    Sure it's slight, but also as cute as the curly tail on its tender protagonist.

    If you've got some very small fry on your hands and 75 minutes to kill, this is as bright, colorful, and fuzzy as you're going to get.

    Bother! Or, rather, why bother?

    There are sweet turns that make the journey worthwhile.

    Not only appropriate for preschoolers, but it also has enough sophistication for older kids.

  • J. R. Jones Chicago Reader (Top Critic)
    The screenplay by Brian Hohlfeld incorporates three of the original Pooh stories but captures none of the charm of A.A. Milne's droll voice.

    Even those with a soft spot for Pooh won't find much to like.

  • Scott Foundas Variety (Top Critic)
    Screenwriter Brian Hohlfeld imbues the animals with the easily recognizable foibles and insecurities that have made Milne's stories (and the films adapted from them) so endearing through the generations.

    Piglet, the gosh-darned cute sidekick of Winnie the Pooh, manages to carry this warm and fuzzy animated feature on his wee shoulders.

    Has all the charm of cafeteria creamed spinach.

    I suggest you get out the books, which for once can truly be said to be more spectacular than the movie.

  • Luke Sader Hollywood Reporter (Top Critic)
    Fiedler brings his trademark high-pitched squeal to the beloved, childlike Piglet. The other voice actors are just as good, with each one providing great heart and verve for their respective characters.

    Parents may find their attention wandering, but the simple tale contains valuable life lessons for their youngest offspring, who will likely be enchanted.

    Not very interesting, imaginative, or exciting.

  • Derek Adams Time Out
    A flimsy flashback-ridden tale about the importance of friendship, loyalty and the notion that size doesn't matter when it comes to tackling seemingly insurmountable issues.

    Pooh finally returns to his roots… a heartwarmingly gentle tribute to Milne that's appropriate for even the youngest viewers.

    Piglet's Big Movie is what might be called second-rank Disney animation [but it] works, the kids will like it, and it provides a little escape from the news.

    Piglet's Big Movie complements (rather than detracts from) the much-loved originals.

    Did we need another Disney flick with an anthology structure?
