It's George Miller's masterpiece, maybe even the best commercial film of 1998.

BABE has all but lost its bearings.

A sequel that lacks the quiet beauty and subtlety of the original!

Top Critic

Laden with more useless pork than a congressional bill.

Top Critic

So distressingly dark, grim, and cynical it's likely to make kids cry!

Top Critic

Has no small amount of merit, especially in the areas of production and costume design, but... [not] in any meaningful way a successful or even appropriate follow-up.

Not so good as the first film, Babe: Pig in the City, presents some dark scenes that gonna scare the lovers for the sweetness of the previous picture and could deviate the children of this sequence, but could too interest an audience that like of more dark material. Despite been a good film, Pig in the City, is not a recommendable movie.

A wonderful dark childrens fairy tale.

This was obviously a huge art direction influence on the Harry Potter films.
