Earlier this week I went with my kids to see the movie Christopher Robin – or what my kids called “the Winnie the Pooh movie”.
Of course no spoilers here, but I will say that while my kids enjoyed the movie as a piece of entertainment, the Christopher Robin movie was very meaningful to me as a dad than – probably more so than it was to my kids.
Make no mistake, my kids loved the movie. They loved seeing Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, and all the other characters “come alive”.
My kids enjoyed the movie as a piece of entertainment. They enjoyed seeing Pooh Bear getting into mischief and causing all sorts of mayhem. They particularly liked the line where Pooh says, “I am a bear of very little brain.” They thought this was adorable. It was.
However, for me the movie made me question and think about my choices and how I am as a dad. It made me think about my priorities and what are the things that I value.
The Christopher Robin movie is worth seeing. For kids and adults alike.
