Throwback Thursday- Babe (1995)

The pig is often not thought of as the most intelligent creature in the animal kingdom. It is either thought of as a cute plaything or dinner.

In the movie Babe (1995),  Babe, a pig is raised by sheepdogs. He does not get much respect, either from the other animals on the farm or from Farmer and Mrs. Hoggett (James Cromwell and Magda Szubanski). Unlike his fellow pigs, Babe takes on the challenge of being a sheepdog while working to gain the respect of the rest of the farm animals and the humans who rely on them.

Let’s be honest, this is a kid’s movie. But there is a message about perseverance and being yourself that transcends the genre and for the most part, makes the movie somewhat watchable as an adult.

I recommend it.
