Christopher Robin is a great movie for the whole family to see, but it is also one that you can watch by yourself.
Most of the movie theatre for Disney’s Christopher Robin were children, all of whom were eagerly waiting to see Winnie the Pooh and his friends on the big screen. However, this movie felt geared more towards adults. Specifically, adults who have grown up and forgotten how to have fun.
In this movie, we see a side of Christopher Robin, played by Ewan McGregor, which we have never seen before. He is no longer a little boy playing in the Hundred Acre Wood. He is now a grown man living in London with his wife, Evelyn, and daughter, Madeline, who does nothing but work.
It is clear early on in the movie that Christopher has now lost his child-like imagination, something I am sure many other adults can relate to.
Instead of spending time with his family, he spends the weekends at work crunching numbers for his boss. Pooh comes back into Christopher’s life at a time when fun and joy are lacking and ultimately teaches him that there are a lot of things more important than work.
The lesson behind Christopher Robin is one that really resonates, and I can almost guarantee that after seeing the movie parents will reevaluate how much time they spend at work and how much time they spend with their family. Maybe they will even be more inclined to find their childhood toys after seeing this movie.
No matter if you’re seeing the movie by yourself or with your kids, Pooh and his friends are lovable for any age group. Throughout their adventure, Eeyore provides a lot of comedic relief that is sure to have the whole theater giggling in their seats.
With that said, you may need to bring some tissues because there are definitely some teary scenes. Overall, Christopher Robin is the perfect summer family movie, but if you choose to go and see it by yourself, we won’t be one to judge.
