: I think I may have fallen asleep due to the lack of plot movement. It was ALL about the talking animals and if you call that brilliant...sad, very sad.
If "plot movement" is all that constitutes good filmmaking to you... sad, very sad. Not to mention, there is PLENTY of "plot movement" to BABE: PIG IN THE CITY, not to mention some wonderful moments of pathos and metaphor. If you didn't get that, it's a comment on yourself as a filmgoer expecting everything to be explained outright to you and not a comment on the "sad" filmmakers who made BABE: PIG IN THE CITY. Quite frankly, I'm amazed any serious filmgoer could dislike B:PITC- the only folks I could imagine disliking it would be investors and shareholders at Universal, since the film was a financial flop thanks largely to it's dark, dark tone.
