Babe, but without any sense of style
12 April 2004 | by (Gloucester, UK) – See all my reviews

There's not much to say about this effort, other than it may well appeal to very young children or people with a very, very soft spot for pigs.

The problem with the Legend of the Tamworth Two is that it does not clearly separate fact from fiction. A simple documentary presented in an appropriate fashion would have been a far more entertaining way of telling the story. That said, the parody of Quint from Jaws was engaging, briefly.

If you are a big Babe fan, this may be your cup of tea. If you're not, it won't be.

'Nuff said.
