Babe Movie Review
Babe is a story about a talking pig.
I haven't seen Babe in a while, but since I just saw its brilliant sequel, Babe: Pig in the City, I decided I better do the original first. I can't remember a great deal of individual scenes (except for the climax) but I know that when I saw it, I loved it. My little brother loved it. My parents loved it.
The movie takes place on a small farm owned by Farmer Hoggett (James Cromwell) and stars a variety of animals, from dogs to geese to mice, and, of course, Babe, the talking pig. All the animals talk, computerized to look as real as a human (the graphics beat out Apollo 13 for Best Visual Effects in 1995). The voices are well done and Cromwell and Magda Szubanski (Hoggett's wife) do a great job as the main humans.
The movie is really fun and great to watch with the family. There's comedy and some drama, and nothing that really will offend anyone.
