Goofs

Someone claims that the Pasadena parade has the "last flowers in the world." But Barry's lawsuit only affected the USA; bees in other countries are presumably still pollinating flowers as usual. See more »

Not good for kids
6 December 2007 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Was that a kids movie i just saw? I went with my son, and unfortunately the guts of the movie was based in COURT. They could have had so much fun with the story line, but where do they take it??? to the most boring and UN-childlike place on the planet. Where have all the good movies gone? We need some bad guys, some adventure, and some fun! Kids wont enjoy it, maybe teenagers. The fact they shot winnie the pooh, maybe funny for adults who know that its just a joke, but for little kids who love winnie, HOW COULD THEY???? The jokes were not funny, i did however laugh a little at the end. If you are going to make a movie for kids, let your hair down, have some fun with it, and Don't bring in adult politics that kids shouldn't and don't want to watch in their movies.
