Babe wannabeBy JediSi (301 reviews) from Kent , 25 Aug 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Charlottes Web is a story of a pig named Wilbur. He was born as part of a litter of eleven and was naturally selected when he was unable to find a spare teat, for early slaughter. The farmers daughter, Fern rescues the pig from certain death by adopting him as a pet. She raises the pig until he is too big to fit in the house (I call that a fine feast, mmm bacon!). Sorry.
She takes Wilbur to live with her uncle, and its only then that Fern realizes that her pig will be slaughtered for Christmas dinner.
The film is cleverly produced but its not like we havent seen it before. Remember Babe in 95. The world was taken by storm by this courageous sheep chaser. During that time, the CGI was considered ground-breaking, thus Wilbur may not be as celebrated as Babe. Just dont mention Pig In The City (Oh how the Americans ruin everything).
That said the kids love it

Very familiar....By a customer from England , 06 Jul 2009Quite familiar this story at times.....Babe springs to mind..... nice for kids, okay for adults (even the quite big spider is just about bareable if you are not a fan of them....;-))
Charlotte's WebBy Jammyhouse (132 reviews) from Wakefield , 28 Jun 2009This film was recommended to me - I thought it was merely a kids film, but I was proved wrong; it's a film for all age groups and is absolutely charming.
