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>

Inevitably disappointing
5 December 1998 | by dswtSee all my reviews

Too much slapstick for my liking. And yet much was too subtle

for kids, too silly for adults. Way too surreal. Innocence,

magic, and sheer novelty of the 1st film were inevitably not

there -- and destroyed by the inclusion of far too much of the

Real World. Effects sometimes intruded -- don't want to notice

when a character is a live animal vs. animatronic as much as

this. This didn't happen in the 1st film because it captured me.

This one distracted. Overall, they tried too hard.
