The voice of the pig is absolutely perfect... sweet, innocent and believable. Babe's tender heart will remind you of Wilbur from E.B. White's "Charlotte's Web" but this is a story in its own right... and there is no talking spider.
James Cromwell received an Oscar nomination for his role as Farmer Hoggett, a sweet, somewhat hen-pecked sheep farmer who wins the piglet as a prize in a county fair.
Babe is a lonely little piglet... he's had to say goodbye to his siblings and his mother at a tender age and is thrust into a barn with all sorts of strange animals he's never seen before. All of the animals, dogs, horses, the cows, etc. feel sorry for Babe and look out for him. There is rivalry with the top Border Collie, but Babe's sweet and innocent disposition wins the hearts of all reluctant farm dwellers.
The farmer's wife initially sees Babe as just a ham on legs, but the farmer sees more and finds a friend that changes his life.
It is impossible to see this film and not get at least a lump in your throat and many scenes will make you laugh outloud. I wish the DVD included more features, like a behind-the-scenes featurette outlining how they got the animatronics (which won a much deserved Oscar) to work. Perhaps it was felt that children would be dismayed that the pig really can't talk or that it took nearly 30 pigs to make the film due to the speed in which they grow into 1-ton hogs... I'm not sure, but as an adult, i would have enjoyed seeing more features on the DVD. This is still a wonderful family film and unforgettable and sweet characters.
Baa-ram-ewe..."Christmas means carnage"! and "Beware the bad cat bearing a grudge".......
As the sole pig on the farm, Babe struggles for acceptance and is "adopted" by a dog who is mothering her own pups. Yes, all the animals talk, and the voice acting work is excellent.
James Cromwell is great as the quiet, proud farmer. Babe goes to great (and adorable) lengths to please him. The final scene of the film will either make you cry tears of happiness, stand up and cheer, or a combination of both.
Whether you're an adult who hasn't seen this film, or you'd like a movie to watch with your children, Babe is a must see.
I echo all the positive comments. This is a movie to cherish.
And if ever you hear someone say, "That'll do, Pig. That'll do.", you'll know that they just put their absolute faith in someone running at 100 to 1 odds, and the long shot came through, out of love.
