A good movie

2 years, 4 months ago at Oct 7 20:28
After the surprise success of ‘Babe’, it was not surprising that they decided to go forward with a sequel and, this time, George Miller himself directed the damned thing (he was the producer on the first installment). Eventually, it was pretty much a failure, barely seen by anyone and the people who saw it didn’t like it at all. One guy did love it though. Indeed, the late Roger Ebert not on... read more

'Babe: Pig In The City' was on TV and since I loved 'Babe' (especially when I was 5 or 6), I decided to check out the sequel, despite mixed reviews and a box office failure, Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel both gave it a thumbs up with Ebert awarding it four stars (out of four)

In my opinion, what a waste of time! Bland story, bad directing, gross effects, incredibly annoying unfunny ch... read more

"Babe is back. And the talking sheepherding swine, along with his equally vocally advanced barnyard buddies take the next step in their "evolution" by moving from the small time lifestyle of the farm to the bustling busy streets of the big city (which, now that I think about it, isn't too far away from the plot of Crocodile Dundee). An underrated and good intentioned sequel that never seems to get the kind of fair shakes that it deserves. "

A good movie

“After the surprise success of ‘Babe’, it was not surprising that they decided to go forward with a sequel and, this time, George Miller himself directed the damned thing (he was the producer on the first installment). Eventually, it was pretty much a failure, barely seen by anyone and the people who saw it didn’t like it at all. One guy did love it though. Indeed, the late Roger Ebert not only liked it but actually loved the damned thing and went even on saying that it was some kind of masterpiece and even one of the best movies released in 1998. Indeed, according to Ebert, it is one of the boldest sequels ever made, some surrealistic work which was completely lost on the mainstream audience. Personally, I do agree with good Old Roger, I think it was a pretty good flick but, to call ” read more

"The first film, was somewhat cute, the sequel however takes the whole cute thing, and then substitutes it for one heck of a dark, depressing film. Mickey Rooney also make a cameo, as one of the saddest looking clowns in film history."
