    Making this your kids' first Pooh experience would be like weaning them on New Coke.

    In Pooh's Heffalump Movie, which is adorable, he finally encounters the real thing. And it (the heffalump) is too cute for words.

    Pooh's Heffalump Movie, with its message of tolerance and open-mindedness, is a fine afternoon at the megaplex. And it will make a welcome addition your home library when it's released on video.

    Sticking closely to formula, Disney delivers a sweet script and charming storybook backgrounds, with serviceable, if sappy, songs from Carly Simon.

    Nothing more than a less charming rehash of the original Tigger tale.

    It's as gooey as a jar of honey, and just as sweet.

    Pooh's Heffalump Movie is much like a children's cardboard storybook and is set to the cozy soundtrack of Carly Simon. It's as sweet as hunny and breezy to follow, and before you know it, it's over and everyone is smiling.

    So insubstantial that it practically evaporates on screen, Pooh's Heffalump Movie likely will play best with toddlers and pre-schoolers easily amused by bright colors, merry songs and lovable, huggable toontoon animals.

    While kids older than 8 may be too jaded to sit through this cute flick, at just over an hour, it may be the perfect fit for first-time filmgoers.

    Heffalump may have hummable songs by Carly Simon. But it's about two and a half lumps shy of being any good.

    Heffalump certainly seemed to satisfy a rapt audience of young children at a Saturday morning screening and who can argue with that?

    A kind of family fare that is rare on the big screen these days.

    On the heels of 1999's The Tigger Movie and 2003's Piglet's Big Movie, Pooh's Heffalump Movie is by far the best of the DisneyToon Studios bunch.

    An innocuous introduction to diversity for the preschool set, Pooh's Heffalump Movie features some charming songs by Carly Simon and is warmly animated so as to evoke nostalgia in parents.

    It's lightweight and pleasant entertainment for very small children, short and careful not to wear out its welcome.

    It's a slight affair, but the cute Heffalump and some cartoon slapstick are endearing enough to its target audience.
