Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie (2005)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

A 'Boo' from Pooh

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

This quickie, straight-to-video film must have been producedconcurrently with Pooh's Heffalump Movie. That theatrical releasewas a pleasant surprise that risked upsetting the Pooh mythology andcame up with a delightful new character, Lumpy the Heffalump. This newfilm, on the other hand, doesn't really know what it wants toaccomplish. It tells the story of Lumpy's first Halloween, and to helphim get over his fear, Roo tells a flashback story of how Piglet did thesame. Personalities jump all over the place; characters alternately getscared and find bravery, but only when the plot depends on it. Moreover,the film casts a sour spell on Pooh, who eats all the Halloween candyand ruins the holiday for everyone. The 66-minute film moves too fastand lacks the pleasant, unfolding feel of the previous film. Still, someof the imagery is quite lovely, and it should provide a decent Halloweendistraction for very young viewers. This was also the last film for JohnFielder, the voice of Piglet.

DVD Details: Extras on Disney's new disc include an interactive game, and instructions for a Pooh-themed Halloween party.
