The Tigger Movie

The Tigger Movie posterTigger has always liked being “the only one.”  After all, that’s the most wonderful thing about Tiggers!  But when all his friends are too busy to bounce with him, he finds himself wishing that he had more Tiggers around to bounce and have fun with.

Thus begins his journey to find and reunite with his family.  After an accidental idea from Owl sends him and Roo looking unsuccessfully through the woods for the Tigger family tree, Tigger decides to write his family a letter.

It takes danger, disappointment and even disaster for Tigger to begin to realize that perhaps his family isn’t as far away as he’d thought.

The Splendiferous

This is one of the sweetest films I’ve ever seen.  It’s entirely clean, without a hint of any immorality, crudeness or anything else objectionable.  It’s pure, sweet family fun.

Tigger learns that he doesn’t need to chase after something more when he has a family of friends who care so much about him they are willing to go out of their way to make him happy and give up their comfort and safety to help him.

The Re-dikorus

I honestly can’t think of anything negative about the film.  It’s a little simplistic, yes, there’s no complexity, no deep moral dilemmas or thought-provoking philosophy.  It’s simple.  But the simplicity is part of its charm and beauty — the simplicity of love and loyalty.

The Stripety

As usual, Disney’s hand-drawn animation is superb, the characters are wonderful and consistent, and the story is sweet and satisfying.  Harry Gregson-Williams’ score is fitting and lovely, and the Sherman brothers’ songs are nothing short of delightful.

It’s a simple movie, but a great one for the whole family to enjoy.  Just don’t be surprised if you find a few tears coming while you watch — it’s a story that will both make you laugh and touch your heart.

T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
