Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Babe: Pig in the City

Bizarre and surprising fable can probably be better appreciated by adults than by children. Dynamic fantasy visuals and colorfully grotesque characters - both animal and human - are brought to life with excellent production design and special effects. Unfortunately, the underwhelming second half degenerates into a more conventional family film, failing to live up to the weirdness potential of the first half.
