Storyline

After Babe's great victory in the shepherding contest, Farmer Arthur Hoggett turns down all offers to make money with his pig's talents. But when he gets hurt severely in the well, his wife has to take up farming. She does her best but cannot meet the bank's requirements, which results in the necessity of getting back to Babe. Soon, Esme Hoggett is sitting in a plane headed for "the" city. There, Babe unwillingly causes deep trouble. He has to stay with Mrs. Hoggett in the only hotel in town that accepts pets. Friendly neighbours send officials who catch all animals from the hotel: Cats, dogs, chimpanzees and many others. Babe, who managed to stay free, decides to help his new friends and gets unexpected help - not only by Ferdinand, who flew all the way to the city. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Goofs

When Esme's clown suit is inflating and tearing her pants, you can clearly see she has rubber feet, an effect of having to put the inflatable suit on. Before, she had her normal, bare feet. See more »

Yes! Better than the Original! Pigs in Leather!
24 September 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

A film that seems too odd to be truly made for kids -- seems director Miller put one over on the producers. the resulting film is a vivid fantasy about a talking pig with a bloated ego (presumably because he's a hero from the first film in the series) who makes the trip to the big city and has to make his way in a house full of animals when "their" humans disappear. Interestingly grown-up social satire as Babe rescues a pit-bull who uses his muscle to enforce the pig's utopic vision of animal community. Rooney appears in an excellent bit as a strange circus clown for whose death Babe is apparently responsible. The finale features a crazy group rumble a la Marx Brothers that will please everyone in the audience -- a class A product, too good to be popular, but sure to please anyone not attatched to its more treacly forebear.
