Classic and cute (Shavon)

Gentle, warm, and moving family film about an unlikely friendship.

You really can't screw up this story and here the warmth and charm are evident.

There's not enough going on to give it a fresh rating, nor is the movie bad enough to give a rotten rating. Thus, a 2.5/5.

Haven't seen this movie for along time, but from what I can remember, it was pretty good. Another great story, similar to that of 'Fox and the Hound' where two animals are unlikely best friends. Charlotte's Web is an enlightening tale about friendship and definitely a classic

The animation has held up very well after almost 10 years - watching Charlotte build her web is a real treat.
This is a really sweet movie that captures the heart of the classic children's novel, and is more or less true to the book as far as I can remember it. I think it's cool that they set the movie in the era the book was written (1950's) instead of modernizing it (which if done wrong, eg filling full of pop culture references, "edgy" stuff and in jokes can come off as horribly corny and date a movie even more). I have never seen the cartoon version so can't say if it's any better, but I'm not a fan of musicals so I probably won't be seeing it.

A very adorable version.

It's so obvious that this was based on a Newberry-winning kid's novel, that it doesn't feel as human as it tries to be (animals aside); but the star-studded cast do well at bringing personality into this world, along with its moments of visual brilliance and emotional connection.

Loved the movie. Charlotte and Templeton were my favorite characters in this film. They stole the show.

A good movie, but is aimed more towards children. Julia Roberts as the voice of Charlotte does a great job along with Dakota Fanning. Good one for the kids, but I wasn't too impressed with it.

I loved this movie as a kid. Dakota Fanning was so young and sweet and her character was so sweet and so cute. I fell in love with her sweet and gentle personality and it made it so fun to watch. Wilbur was also very cute too

Really heartwarming, touching and cute at the same time - the perfect ingredients for families to enjoy in a film. Also, it's way more enjoyable than "Babe" and probably better than the original animated film. (A)

Retains most of the magic from the book.

it isn't a good movie but I have seen worse. Your child from about 4-8 will love it. It takes a lot to engage 3 yr olds interest in movie and 2 and less rarely stay awake at movies. Most children over 8 won't like it. It just bit to simple. I dare you to count how many pig themed movies are out their. The touching part of Charolletes web is the way Charollete goes out make even toughest grown men and women cry. I didn't cry when they shot old yeller or bambi's mom got shot. I am sorry bit I kind of snickered when Simba's dad died I am so sorry. I was cynical little girl. I was older when saw Charolletes web and the ending did make me cry though rest standard pig movie

Really well-done live action treatment of this classic story

love this move as a kid

Very fun loving and full of joy. E.B White would have cherished this version of his award winning classic. All the voice actors fit their characters perfectly, especially Julia Roberts as Charlotte. I even enjoyed the live acting leads, especially Dakota Fanning. My only flaw with this version is the crows having character backgrounds, knowing they had nothing to do with story besides attacking Templeton and being scared of a scarecrow. However overall, this film is wonderful.

not bad and not good

Such a sweet tale. But maybe because I love the book so much, I expect a little more from the movie.
