A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this movie.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that because this movie deals with Tigger's search for his "real" family, it may not be a good fit for the youngest adopted children. Expect some mild peril as Tigger searches high and low for his family; at one point he is lost in the woods and his buddies search for him in a snowstorm.

What's the Story?
When the rambuctious Tigger destroys Eeyore's home, everyone in the Hundred Acre Wood gets so upset that they ask him to leave them alone. Tigger feels so dejected that he wonders why no one appreciates his Tigger-ness. In fact, he wonders, why aren't there more Tiggers around like him? So begins a determined search for his family tree. Can Pooh and pals convince him that no matter what he finds on his quest, they will always be there for him?
Is It Any Good?
Though the first 20 minutes of this addition to the Pooh series provide lots of giggly Tigger moments, his quest to find his own family feels a little over-extended as the movie wears on. It's not a new theme, and Tigger's search might feel somewhat predictable to adults. Plus, Tigger's decision to find his own family that "looks like him" has him ignoring his friends, which causes hurt feelings all around.
Despite its shortcomings, this playful, musical peek into Pooh's Corner does illustrate why it's such a special place. And viewers learn that true family might not look exactly the way one expects. Sometimes what we're looking for is bouncing along next to us the whole time.
