Item description for Charlotte's Web (Widescreen Edition) by Gary Winick, Julia Roberts & Steve Buscemi...
Overview Fern is one of only two living beings who sees that Wilbur is a special animal, while she raises him - the runt of the litter - into a terrific and radiant pig. As Wilbur moves into a new barn, he begins a second profound friendship with the most unlikely of creatures - a spider named Charlotte - and their bond inspires the animals around them to come together as a family. When the word gets out that Wilbur's days are numbered, it seems that only a miracle will save his life. A determined Charlotte, who sees miracles in the ordinary, spins words into her web in an effort to convince the farmer that Wilbur is some pig and worth saving.

somewhere in the middle Feb 10, 2008
I had a fair share of both likes and dislikes with this film. First on my 2 major dislikes 1 the Mom she wastes way too much film time whining to the family Dr about Fern's habit of hanging out in the barnyard. She's also always dressed like she's going to a tea party. Your average farm wife wore clothes they didn't mind getting dirty, They readily got their own hands dirty doing their fair share of farm chores and I'm guessing didn't get their knickers in a bunch if their daughter was a bit of a tomboy and hung out with the animals. Farm lands were widespread it's often that except at school your siblings and maybe cousins if you had em were you're only playmates.
2nd Those stupid crows what are we trying to redo the moose brothers from brother bear? It wasn't even remotely funny. It was a waste of time diverting from the major story and never even in the book. It was what I would've left on the cutting room floor in favor of some more charming music. The music by the way wasn't worth it. The animated film at least had catchy music you could sing along with and feel good hearing.
Now I thought both Dakota fanning and Julia Roberts played their roles so wonderfully that that was worth the rest. There was a little bathroom humor but let's face it everyone farts and barn yards just do not smell sweet because there is so much manure to deal with. that's a fact of life. So is that the average farm animal is always at risk of being dinner except the horse, Sheep, geese pigs cows and chickens, the cows stop giving good milk, The chicken who lays the least eggs they could easily be dinner in hours or days. It's a fact of life and if you're upset by me telling you this then you're in denile about that big mac you scarfed down yesterday. This story does help illustrate that those animals were alive and had faces and such recently. However don't kid yourself the average animal doesn't live in fear of being Sundays dinner. However the story does show the fact of life that is what farm animals were raised for. My 2 favorites Charlotte for her gentle compassionate freindship. I admit I cried when she died even though I knew it was coming. The other even though his lines where cheesy (no pun intended) Templton he was so rattish. self centered yet clever, resorsful and in his own way so disgusting it was in a way cute. So for an evening of entertainment rent this movie (it might even be at your local library. Then if you like it buy it. it.
A Crunchy Parental Review of "Charlotte's Web" Jan 22, 2008
I have to be honest; I had some serious reservations about "Charlotte's Web". I mean, I already knew that the story starts with a baby piglet about to be slaughtered, and that he is destined for the same but for the intervention of one tiny spider. Not the most gentle of storylines. And then, of course, the heroine, Charlotte, dies in the end.
But I have to say that it was all handled very tactfully, and we happily took our son to see it not just once, but twice, once with friends to whom we recommended it.
There is a bit of bathroom humour (fairly mild) when one of the cows passes gas, and Charlotte speaks pretty straightforwardly about catching flies with her web and eating them, but as mainstream movies go this one was really quite mild, and very sweet.
Charolotte's Web--book/video Jan 12, 2008
Wonderful classic story to purchase for grandchildren to either read or watch as a relaxing video.
Cute movie Jan 8, 2008
My kids have enjoyed this movie. I think the little girl is a little too sassy in it and that is why I only gave it 4 stars but that is from the mom's point of view. My kids like the talking animals and think the pig is cute. Overall it is a cute kids movie.
True Classics Never Go Out Of Style Dec 17, 2007
I enjoyed the story of Charlotte's Web as a child.... And some 30 odd years later it is wonderful to see an updated movie made of this classic children's story for all to enjoy..... young and old alike!
Dakota Fanning was terrific in this film as her role as Fern. I don't think that they could have picked better actors/actresses to do the voice overs of the animals in Charlotte's Web either. I thoroughly enjoyed the computer graphics of Charlotte herself. Good, clean family fun!
