Winnie the Pooh at 91% Certified on Rotten Tomatoes

Whether you need a movie to take a young child to, want to find your inner child, or just prefer animated teddy bears over Dawson Casting wizards (no offense), if you're planning to see Winnie the Pooh this weekend, the critics at Rotten Tomatoes think you're in great company.

Despite the film's controversially short run time of about an hour, critics are calling it "a fitting tribute", "near revolutionary" and other very, very gushy things. The high praise currently leaves WtP at 91% fresh; the highest rated animated film of the year, 9% higher than the closest runner-up, Kung Fu Panda 2.

Naturally, I'm still a bit miffed at critics for slamming what I thought was Pixar's extremely fun contribution to animation this year, but I can't deny that the nearly universal praise gets me even more excited to be heading to the cinema today.
