Babe: Pig in the City | 1998 | G | - 1.5.1

Babe is back, this time trying to save his boss's farm from foreclosure. Starring James Cromwell, Magda Szubanski, Elizabeth Daily, Glenne Headly, Mickey Rooney and Steven Wright.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - Very mild sexual innuendo. In two scenes, we briefly see women in very revealing bikinis. Two dogs have puppies.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Growling and barking dogs chase an animal. A few men try to grab a woman's bags and she fends them off. An animal falls off a truck and onto the road; he shakes a little bit but is not injured. An animal appears to have drowned but is then saved (the scene is long and excruciatingly tense). A group of animal control workers capture several animals in nets, sometimes using force; we see a fish on a floor and an animal caught, pulled and hung by its neck. An animal hanging on an electric line is shocked and falls. An animal accidentally lands in front of a target at which shots are being fired, but the animal is not hit. A handicapped dog (he is in a doggy wheelchair) chases a car, is dragged alongside and we're left with the impression that he's hurt and gone to the big running field in the sky, but he recovers. A man is hit and injured by falling objects.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
