Our Score
This rather disappointing sequel isn't anywhere near the equal of the endearing original, in which the delightful talking-pig hero entered a sheepdog trial and won hearts as well as prizes. Here, Babe finds himself in constant danger when he travels to the city to earn money after Farmer Hoggett is injured. The action is taken at too frantic a pace to let the personalities come through, though the special-effects work with the animals is still quite wonderful and visually impressive.


The pig and his farmyard pals take a trip to the big city, where their curiosity and love of adventure lands them in trouble, leaving the courageous Babe to find a way to save his chums from danger. Family comedy sequel, starring Magda Szubanski, Mickey Rooney and James Cromwell, and featuring the voice of Elizabeth Daily as Babe.
