"Babe: Pig in the City" is a 1998 sequel to the 1995 film Babe. It occurs in the fictional city of Metropolis. Due to the unexpected darker and more mature subject matter (the film includes a scene in which a dog almost drowns while hanging from a bridge), the film was not received as well critically as the first Babe film was, and reviews were generally mixed. However, it was also praised by some.
After the victory in the shepherding
contest, Farmer Hoggett and Babe return home to a warm welcome. While repairing
the well, Farmer Hoggett is injured and cannot work, so his wife attempts to
take up the duties of the farm. Facing foreclosure, Esme Hoggett resolves to
show Babe at a faraway fair for an appearance fee. On the way to the fair, Mrs.
Hoggett and Babe are unexpectedly detained at an airport, and are forced to stay
in an unfamiliar city. They find the only hotel in town that accepts pets but
soon become separated from each other. Babe encounters cats, dogs, and a family
of apes, and is quick to earn the respect of all the animals after he rescues a
Prior to the film's theatrical release, it was originally rated PG by the MPAA; this was because of the dog violence that was too scary for little children and the death of Fugly Floom was a bit overwhelming. The TV spots for the film's theatrical release mentioned this rating. When the film was released in theaters, it was re-rated G by the MPAA, so the TV spots for the film's theatrical release currently mentioned this rating instead of its original rating. The reason why the final cut was rated G by the MPAA was because most of the dog violence was cut, leaving a shot that shows the pitbull pushing down Babe into the river. Some people thought it was rated PG by the MPAA as they saw the poster mentioning the film's original rating. The home video release still has a G rating from the MPAA. This was Universal's last theatrically-released feature-length film to be rated G by the MPAA until 2006's Curious George. It was also Universal's last theatrically-released live-action film to be rated G by the MPAA until 2007's Mr. Bean's Holiday. However, when the film aired on Superstation WGN on November 18, 2007 and AMC on December 9, 2007, the shot that shows Ferdinand almost getting shot by humans was removed.
The film takes place in an imaginative fantasy-like Metropolis. It notably resembles Oz, but in modern day form. The city has various styles and of architecture from around the world. It also has a variety of waterways, noticeable by the hotel at which Babe stays. The downtown area appears to be situated on an island not dissimilar to Manhattan Island. The Downtown Skyline features various skyscrapers such as the World Trade Center, Sears Tower, Chrysler Building, IDS Center, MetLife Building, Sydney Opera House, the Hollywood sign, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Fernsehturm Berlin, Big Ben, Red Square, the Statue of Liberty, and the Tour Eiffel and many other landmarks.
The DVD covers feature a similar but different skyline, keeping the World Trade Center, Golden Gate Bridge, Big Ben, Sydney Opera House, and Red Square. Several skyscrapers added include 40 Wall Street (Two of them), Empire State Building, 500 5th Avenue, the Flatiron Building, World Financial Center, and several Los Angeles Skyscrapers including the U.S. Bank Tower. The river near the hotel is similar at the canal of Venice, Italy.
