We watched Babe the other night for the first time in years. Every time I watch it, I can see how it won best picture.
Babe tells the story of a cute little piglet. He learns to make a home at the farm where he lives. But though he's cute, it's the farmer who really steals the show in my opinion.
There's the dance scene when Babe is sick. The farmer's wife isn't home, and he starts dancing giving it everything he has. So awesome.
And then there's the fact that he believes in himself and in his pig. He doesn't let people laughing at him stop him from what he knows he can do. He finds a way around the rules, and wins in the end.
I get a tear in my eye every time I see this movie. OK, I get lots of tears.
I have to mention my kids didn't take their eyes off it. My son (now 6) is shocked that the poor mommy pigs are going off the the slaughterhouse. My daughter (3) has no clue. She jsut likes the talking animals.
And just a sidenote since I'm talking about movies. Did you see there's a new Mummy movie coming out this year? Not until August 1st (which is Egyptian New Year by the way). But it's going on my calendar now!
