Product Description

Product Description

Academy Award winner and Best Picture nominee, Babe is the inspirational story of a shy Yorkshire piglet who doesn't quite know his place in the world. But when Farmer Hoggett (James Cromwell) wins him at the county fair, Babe discovers that he can be anything he wants to be - even an award-winning sheepdog! With the help of a delightful assortment of barnyard friends, the heroic little pig is headed for the challenge of his life in this endearing and fun-filled tale the whole family will love.


The surprise hit of 1995, this splendidly entertaining family film was nominated for six Academy Awards, including best picture, director, and screenplay, and deservedly won the Oscar for its subtly ingenious visual effects. Babe is all about the title character, a heroic little pig who's been taken in by the friendly farmer Hoggett (Oscar nominee James Cromwell), who senses that he and the pig share "a common destiny." Babe, a popular mischief-maker the Australian farm, is adopted by the resident border collie and raised as a puppy, befriended by Ferdinand the duck (who thinks he's a rooster), and saves the day as a champion "sheep-pig." Filled with a supporting cast of talking barnyard animals and a chorus of singing mice (courtesy of computer enhancements and clever animatronics), this frequently hilarious, visually imaginative movie has already taken its place as a family classic with timeless appeal. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you aren't willing to admit that a movie with a talking pig as its star can be a great movie, you have to tell me what label to use for this wonderful and touching film. It is special in so many ways that I have to admit it is one of my favorite films. My kids make fun of me for it, but I don't really care.
I went to this movie in the theaters with no expectations beyond spending some time with my kids watching a goofy film. And I have to admit that the first few minutes in the pig factory had me apprehensive about the motives of the film. But when Hoggett (James Cromwell) and the pig regard each other at the fair, well, I started to be won over. By the time Ferdinand the Duck crows like a rooster, I was with the movie 100%. The whole look of the movie is unique. The voices of the animals are all great and they are given fabulous lines. Mrs. Hoggett (Magda Szubanski) is fab-u-lous as the silent farmer's ambitious and talkative wife.
There are so many wonderful things about the movie that I cannot name them all, but when Hoggett sings and then dances(!) for Babe to try and inspire the recovery of the pig, well, that is a great scene of all time as far as I am concerned. Magical. How Cromwell created and embodied this character I will never understand. Hoggett is a perfect character for the role he is playing as the man with the taciturn outside and the off the wall inside that can see the sheep pig where his wife sees only meals. How many lessons for life are there in that? They are hard to number.
And who doesn't love Ferdinand leading Babe into the house to try and steal the alarm clock that Ferdinand sees as a threat to his life because it is a mechanical rooster. Since he is a duck the farmer will eat he has become a rooster and now he won't even be needed as that.

What's not to love about this sweet, touching, classic story of a heroic pig who acts like a sheep dog? I thought this was a remarkable price for this classic movie. The packaging was excellent, it arrived sooner than expected, and the DVD is in wonderful condition. Can't wait to sit down at Christmastime with my family and watch it together and get all nostalgic! :D

On of the most heartening and fun movies I have ever seen is the 1995 opus Babe. This picture was a gem I missed when it was in the cinema, but caught up with it quickly when it hit home video. And yes, I said video!

It’s About A Pig:

Babe is a clueless little pig, who is naïve and quaint all at the same time. He ends up at an older couple’s farm and quickly becomes a part of the other animal’s lives. But as we soon learn, trouble looms on the horizon.

Singing Mice:

Helping us follow along these chapters in Babe’s adventures is the farm’s version of a Greek Chorus, the three mice. Singing and speaking directly to us, so much of the lessons and humour this story contains is conveyed through them. They are the cutest mice this side of Ratatouille!

The Song And Dance:

Just before the wonderful conclusion, a song and dance is performed. Cheers of joy always spring forth from me with this scene. A previously repressed character lets loose with emotions, feelings, and unbridled joy. And it is spellbinding.

Babe is a very special movie. It was so amazing it was nominated for Best Picture, but lost to a truly wretched film called Braveheart. And speaking of wretched, please don’t watch the sequel Babe: Pig In The City. I pretend that one does not exist.

Babe was a runaway success in 1995. It even got a best picture nomination and in my mind should have won. This is a fantastic movie, sure to delight children from 2-100. Chris Noonan has created the modern farmyard parable. He deftly brings you into his world of talking animals centered around that most amicable of pigs, Babe. While the sheepdogs rule the farm, Babe warms the heart of sheep and dog alike, and eventually farmer Hoggett much to the chagrin of his wife who is counting the days to the next big feast. Ultimately Babe is spared as farmer Hoggett comes to realize he has a most unusual pig on his hands. Babe finds himself welcomed into the fold, rising to the ultimately status of being able to come into the house on miserable nights, at the expense of the house cat. All these animals are played wonderfully off each other. The voices couldn't be better. Farmer Hoggett eventually puts Babe to the ultimate challenge, the great sheepherding competition, which brings out a raucous reaction from the crowd. But Babe soon silences them. This movie has everything one could want in a children's movie and more. It deserves its place among the classics of all time.

Disappointed in Babe: Pig in the City, I went back to watching the original. Ever after a dozen viewings, this original film retains its power to entertain, endear, and raise emotional and psychological issues uncommon among children's films.
The magic was in the details of this film, and not just in production design. After all, busy production design couldn't make the second film any more engaging than it was. No, the original Babe's charm lies in the wonderful characterizations of Rex and Fly, the sweet yet prejudiced sheep dogs, lovable in nature, but with character flaws that make them as rich as any human character; it lies in the matter-of-fact Farmer Hoggett, played with sincerity and humour by James Cromwell; it lies in the impeccably tailored voice work, from the braying ewe Maa to the hilariously squeaky mice, the booming horse, and that oh-so-greasy cat; it lies in the beautifully rendered, pudgy voice work for Babe by Christine Cavanaugh, who was sorely missed in the second film; and it lies in the pure heart of moments like the slamming of the gate at the sheep dog trial at the end, Rex and Fly's endearing kiss against a soaring crane shot, the eerie dramatic irony of Babe facing Farmer Hoggett's rifle, and Fly's loss of her puppies. And the film's famously ironic tone is the icing on the cake, spearheaded by a highly effective "naive narrator", which subverts the fairy-tale tone of the piece and adds dimensions that serve to add both humour and intellectual complexity to the story.
This film was well deserving of its Best Picture and Best Screenplay Oscar nominations, a film smart enough for adults but joyful enough for children.
