Babe: Pig in the City

Wanna know how boring Babe: Pig in the City is? It's so boring -not to mention irritating- that I found myself wishing the main character, a mild-mannered pig named Babe, would be slaughtered for bacon. (This, mind you, is coming from a vegetarian!)

Of course I didn't enjoy the first "Babe" movie, so it's no surprise I found this one lacking in originality and fun. Babe is a sweet, cute, pig, who in his last movie won big honors as a sheepdog. Okay, the animals are adorable, but you can't build a movie on viewers' general fondness for animals. You have to have plot, which Babe doesn't.

Well, it has some semblance of a plot, but not much. Babe's owners, Farmer Hoggett and his wife, are in financial trouble. To save the farm, Babe is entered in a state fair, but he and Mrs. Hoggett fail to make it there and are stranded in a big city. There, they stay in a house full of animals and have lots of "adventures".

As much as I love animals, I can only take so much cutesy animal talk and obvious plotting. Babe: Pig in the City is a movie only for people with no brains.

My Rating = Two Stars
