[floating under a bridge with Christopher watching]
Just my luck... a Heffalump... leering at his lunch.
Eeyore, I'm not a Heffalump.
Doesn't matter, anyway. Headed for the waterfall; I'll be gone soon.
[rushing off the bridge to the riverbank to the waterfall, then hurriedly gesturing for Eeyore to swim]
Oh no, not the waterfall! Swim!
Not that anyone will notice.
[continuing his swim gesture to Eeyore]
Swim, swim, swim!
[crashing into a rock in the river]
Just have to go with the - ow - flow.

Christopher Robin is a truly great and heartwarming film about the importance of family and friends on one's life. Not only written incredibly well and acted perfectly, the film has a lot of realism to it, even with talking stuffed animals as part of the cast. Blending very real everyday hardships with fantasy gives the film a contrasting look at how bleak the world is when we don't realize what is truly important and tells us to remember our childhoods and try to be a better parent by being a kid with your kids. Overall, the film displays a heartfelt message with a cast of fun characters from an iconic series and does so very well and I suggest you go out and see this movie.
