The Tigger Movie (2000)

Not Enough Bounce

What do Tiggers do? They bounce and bounce and bounce. Unfortunately for Tigger his friends in the 100 Acre wood are all busy trying to build a home for Eeyore before winter sets in. When Tigger's enthusiastic bouncing causes too many problems Rabbit suggests he goes looking for others like him. Trouble is that Tigger has always believed he is "the only one" but just in case he goes on a quest to find out if he is truly the only one by finding the Tigger family tree.

When I tell you that "The Tigger Movie" is just okay please don't be offended because this movie reviewer has never been a massive fan of Winnie the Pooh and his friends. It isn't that I dislike them and I can see why some are particularly fond of them because there is something cute and amusing about Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and so on but I have never really been that entertained by them. It is why after an opening which introduces us to Tigger and his friends in the 100 Acre Wood I found my attention starting to drift as whilst each intro is entertaining after that it just didn't keep this grown up entertained.

But I am sure younger children; especially those who have been raised on the exploits of Winnie the Pooh will enjoy "The Tigger Movie" a lot more than I did. In fact it ticks plenty of boxes from having plenty of humour and some musical scenes to having a moral when it comes to the importance of friends. On top of that it does have some classic style animation work which has that warmth you get from old school hand drawn characters.

What this all boils down to is that "The Tigger Movie" is some innocent fun which is sure to appeal to those who have a place in their hearts for Winnie the Pooh and Tigger. But for those like me who are not that fussed about Winnie the Pooh this ends up just another okay family movie.
