The tone is ideal for a family audience. The length is perfect. And the sequence of last-minute surprises elicits tears and laughter in just the right proportions.
Wee urbanites might find Disney's scorn for city life a shade offputting, but if preview audiences are any indication, little ones will laugh their tiny heinies off at the humor herein.
The first movie was good-hearted and I liked it, but since then Babe has raised the bar, with animals that not only talk more realistically, but say things that are wittier and more pungent.
It does a better job than most family films in projecting a child's-eye view of a world where siblings and pets are equally cherished members of the family.
Taken on its own entirely hokey terms, Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco is a charming romp of a talking animal movie.
It's more padded than Lassie's bed. But 9-and-unders were having a tail-wagging good time.
So pathetic, that the filmmakers are not above making gay jokes about animals in San Francisco!
Somebody needs to invest in a few leashes.
This sequel is serviceable family-market fodder, but even little children might expect something more sophisticated these days.
Full of the cute doggie tricks, big noisy adventure sequences and the usual anthropomorphic bits of action and dialogue that children will love.
The plot is nothing more than a recycled version of the first one, but hey, it is still funny and there are many great lines.
