I've grown weary of angry parents condemning this wonderful film because it was too frightening for their children. "Babe: Pig in the City" is a masterpiece, full of wonderful imagery and heart. While I agree that some of scenes may be frightening for the very young, I have to ask: what's wrong with that? Do not forget that every one of these "scary" scenes serves a purpose in the film's themes and in the development of its characters. Unlike most films geared at children these days, the lessons in "Babe - Pig in the City" are not easily learned. Just as in life, these lessons can be scary -- just as change is frightening for us all. Each of these pieces finds its way into the experiences that help Babe grow -- and develop respect for creatures different than he. That's a lesson with weight, and when it happens in the film, it means something. I'm 32, but I remember films that stood out to me as a kid -- and they weren't ones that were safe, easy crowd-pleasers. They were the ones that challenged me, made me think, and yes, sometimes scared me...but they were ultimately the ones that had things to say about the world. Siskel & Ebert called it correctly: "Babe - Pig in the City" was one of last year's very best films.

The film is a masterpiece of the first water in every conceivable way. Visually it is astounding; these animals give some of the best performances on film, thanks to enormously talented human actors, a brilliant screenplay, a brilliant director, and, of course, the amazing animal actors themselves.
Unfortunately, certain parents and their children expected light fare on par with the original Babe movie (which is terrific but clearly inferior to its sequel). The result reminds me very much of the general reaction to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory; many parents felt and feel it is just "too dark" and "upsetting" for their children. It seems to me that many of their outraged "reviews" here betray the fact that they spent too much time worrying about whether scenes were too intense for their children and not enough time actually watching the film or attempting to understand it.
Anyone who complains that the movie is too dark, violent (even "disgusting") clearly did not pay attention to the movie. No animal or person dies or is permanently damaged within the course of the film. Even the goldfish and Flealick (the little dog on wheels) survive. The message(s) of the movie, moreover, couldn't be more suitable for children: tolerance, kindness and respect for animals, redemption through perseverence, just to name a few.
I suspect that those people who hated the film are also the kind of people who are more concerned with whether their children are frightened by an intense scene in a movie and less concerned with keeping their own animals indoors and off the streets at night. My advice: rewatch the film, alone if you think your kids will somehow be mentally "damaged" by it.

A smartly written tale of a little pig who can accomplish anything he wants. A must see.

Babe- a little pig wants to be a sheep dog, but all the farm animals laugh at him. In the end he does what is necessary and gets the job done!

Babe - Pig In The City - Slightly darker, sequel with deeper themes that may not be appropriate for all children due to some scary and tense moments.

I reccomend both movies highly!

I'm willing to excuse the vicious reviews this film recieved on its release as a huge misconception, you see poeple (reviewers)were expecting another retread of the charming 95 movie, in other words a cash in. What a dis-service they have done everyone. You people who have not seen this film have missed a beautiful, sad and masterful allegory. To me the film was about immigrants, their struggles , the cynicism of living in a big city (notice the ape family's indifference to the drowning dog).It's about rascism and intolerance,expressed slyly in the opera loving animal hating neighbours of the hotel at which babe stays . Yet you don't have to bother with such complex themes if you don't care to as the film is visually rich, every frame is a work of art(shot mostly at low angles with the camera moving kinetically and gracefully). These oblique shots, the special effects would make the film worth checking out on their own, but they wouldn't even be worth mentioning had the film been not so moving. I will never forget the seguence where babe saves the dog that was chasing him from drowning, or saving the dieing fish by spitting it into the river. I realise I'm blabbering but I'm actually quite bitter at all those critics, they contributed a great deal to this films financial failure and thus the film was not even released overhere cinematically(I just saw it on video).To me this film is a noble immigrant's tale written like a novel by Charles Dickens, performed by the one and only Babe and directed by Goerge Miller. I don't even care "who the film is suitable for", that is irrelevant, it is purely and simply a shamefully overlooked masterpiece. Babe was wonderful film, this one is completely different and all the better for it."That'll do Pig", indeed it will.
