loved it!
15 December 2006 | by beckie_dillingerSee all my reviews

When I was a kid I loved this story. I read it in school and watched the cartoon version. Now that I'm an adult I still love this story...the movie was great, my kids loved it as well! They did an awesome job on this one! They couldn't have picked a better person to play the part of Fern. Aside for the red hair, she's perfect for the part. Well done on all accounts! Another reason this movie was terrific for me is because I absolutely love pigs! The pigs they used for the movie were adorable too! And I really liked the detail they put into Charlotte spinning her webs, it was pretty neat to watch how it's done, my kids really liked that part too.
