Jay Boyar Orlando Sentinel Much to my surprise, I found Babe charming in an eccentric, oddly tough-minded sort of way. And if it isn't quite good enough to change my mind about the entire critter-chat genre, it is certainly good enough to recommend. Jun 16, 2015 Full Review Richard Schickel TIME Magazine He's brave and bright, good-natured and ambitious, naive and vulnerable. All in all, he's probably the most winsome orphan to appear on the screen since Freddie Bartholomew impersonated David Copperfield 60 years ago. Aug 19, 2014 Full Review Jami Bernard New York Daily News Thanks to well-trained live animals, clever voice characterizations and a big dash of muppetry from Henson's Creature Shop, Babe and his barnyard friends not only walk the walk and trot the trot, they also talk the talk. Rated: 3.5/4 Aug 19, 2014 Full Review Wesley Lovell Cinema Sight Babe is a delightful tale told with untold depths of joy and acceptance. It says that not only should you be accepted for who you are, you should be accepted regardless of what you choose to do or who you choose to be. Rated: 4/4 Nov 26, 2022 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies Over 25 years later, Babe remains one of 1995's best pictures of the year. Rated: 5/5 Apr 11, 2022 Full Review Dennis King Tulsa World Wise, captivating and thoroughly loony, this artful little farm fable is one of those rare films that works for all age levels.
