BABE: PIG IN THE CITY in 35mm
Monday, March 13 @ 7:00 PM / The Music Box Theatre

BABE: PIG IN THE CITY
Directed by George Miller - 1998
Plot takes a backseat in George Millers disorderly and psychedelic sequel, which has more in common with films like WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY and THE WIZARD OF OZ than it does with its heartwarming predecessor. When circumstances force our little pink hero to leave his idyllic home for the city, he finds himself in a twisted Frankenstein of a place, a mix of Baz Luhrmann's Paris and all the cities you've ever known. BABE is quickly severed from his companion Mrs. Hoggett (Magda Szubanski) and left to discover the city's untold wonders (and horrors) alone. Bizarre characters abound in this bestial MAD MAX: a pregnant chimp in a dress, a paraplegic Jack Russell Terrier (Adam Goldberg), a poodle the color of cotton candy, and a ghastly clown (played by Mickey Rooney, of course). Its a film that delighted critics (it was Gene Siskel's best film pick of 1998), horrified parents, and developed a deserved cult following since its release. One website that rates media for kids produced such choice parental reviews as Its dark, depressing, scary, sadHow ANYONE (let alone Roger Ebert) could say this is BETTER than the first, I will never know. I think Bob the chimpanzee (voiced by the great Steven Wright) would respond, Its all illusory  its ill, and its for losers. (RL)
