1.0 out of 5 stars Watch it before letting your kids watch it, 21 Sept. 2007
This review is from: BABE - Pig In The City [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
Reading the reviews here, and other online reviews, it's clear that this movie is a real love it/hate it thing. Me? I hated it. I've rarely been so vehemently opposed to a movie. We bought it for our kids because they liked the original Babe, and the cover picture looks sunny and happy. Don't be fooled. 'Grotesque' is the word that constantly comes to mind. If you are thinking of getting this for your kids - well, maybe they will like it, but I would very strongly recommend you watch it yourself first so you know what you're getting them into. For me, the whole spirit of the original is completely gone. There are no characters to sympathise with, there is no humour at all in the movie, no lifting of the depressive mood. If you want to see animals being gratuitously horrible to each other, and then humans being gratuitously horrible to each other, and then humans being gratuitously horrible to animals, then sure, go ahead and get this movie. But don't expect to come away smiling.

I only gave it one star because I don't seem to be able to give it zero stars.

I don't have kids and when I saw this when it came out at the cinema, I was cracking up at the sequences... They were belly aching funny, thinking of the chase through the city with the dogs, the glue and the woman from the farm, maybe if I was concerned for my 5 year olds watching it, maybe I would be against it and the ott violence, but as an adult, not really the target market, I thought it was a great, funny, enjoyable, emotional film...
