Trivia

Most of the shooting was done in Victoria, Australia. As it wasn't the correct season in Melbourne during the county fair scenes, the trees surrounding the location were spray painted with non-toxic orange and yellow paint to make it seem as though it was autumn. And, rather than have extras getting motion sickness on the rides, the art department sculpted bodies out of polystyrene and took casts of their own faces that were put onto the dummies. These dummies were painted and dressed up and strapped into rides; going round and around for about a week - and no motion sickness. Each of their faces (about 5 of them) were on all of the 60 or so dummies. See more »

Great family movie in time for the holidays!
17 December 2006 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure where all of the criticism of this movie is coming from! My wife and I watched and enjoyed every moment of this children's classic and didn't feel cheated in any way by the telling!

The story is close to the children's book but a couple of goofy crows are added with the voices of Thomas Haden Church and Andre Benjamin. They only added a mild comic subplot but didn't affect the telling in any way. Every time I hear THC's voice, I always see his character from Wings blabbering on about something mundane! He's quite silly as a starving crow!

If you want high drama this year, go see Apocalypto, or Blood Diamond... for good family entertainment, Charlotte's Web is the perfect counter to any heavy story lines from those other movies!
