"There's an edge to this exemplary family movie, just as there is in the story.  Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle

Editor's Note
Gary Winick (THIRTEEN GOING ON 30) had a lot to live up to in remaking a beloved children's movie, itself based on the classic novel by E. B. White, but this 2006 live-action version more than fulfills its promise. With droll '50s-inspired art direction, low-key and earnest performances, and the cutest ensemble cast of farm animals since BABE, Winick maintains the deeply moral (though not moralistic) themes of the original novel and also injects some mild humor and scenes of peril and adventure.

Child actor Dakota Fanning gives an impressively mature performance as the loyal and spunky farm girl Fern who rescues the pig Wilbur--the runt of his litter--from her father's axe. But as Wilbur grows up and faces his likely fate of becoming Christmas dinner, another friend steps in to save the day--the spider Charlotte (voiced by Julia Roberts), who spins fancy, slogan-filled webs above Wilbur's pen to convince his guardians that he is indeed a special pig and worth saving. The resulting hubbub saves his hide and reveals the importance of friendship and loyalty. Additionally, in scene after poignant scene, Wilbur learns about the nature of miracles, the seasons of life and death, and the inherent worth of even the runtiest of us.

Expert Review Charlotte's Web - DVD
By: Franck Tabouring Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 4/5/2007 11:03 PM
Charlotte's Web is some movie, and it's plain terrific. It is an exhilarating and thoroughly earnest adaptation of E.B. White's popular classic, and a magical adventure that will dazzle both those familiar with the story and those who might never even have heard of it. The movie beautifully combines subtle storytelling with stunning visuals, and never reaches past White's incredible imagination. Therefore, Charlotte's Web is a humble experience. ...read the full review

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"[TB]he movie is a delight: never coarse, rarely preachy and less concerned with proving its own cleverness than with paying tribute to the wisdom of White's book." 12/15/2006 p.E8

Entertainment Weekly
"What hooks you from the start is Dakota Fanning's unfussy passion as Fern..." -- Grade: A- 12/22/2006 p.60

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "[Fanning is] genuinely adorable without slipping into sickly-sweet territory....CHARLOTTE'S WEB remains surprisingly inviting." 03/01/2007 p.33

ReelViews 8 of 10
As family features go, Charlotte's Web may be the best we have seen in a while. Technically adept and surprisingly affecting, the movie translates E.B. White's children's book into a motion picture that will enthrall children and engage their parents. The animals come to life with enough credibility that it's not out of the question that a few tears may be shed for a CGI creature. Strangely, even with plucky Dakota Fanning fronting for the human actors, the film loses some of its magic when it moves outside of the barn. Comparisons to Babe are expected and warranted, but one thing missing form this story is James Cromwell. - James Berardinelli

Reel.com 8 of 10
Before there was Babe, there was Wilbur, the runt piglet hero of E. B.White's beloved Charlotte's Web, which the Children's Literature Association ranks as one of the 11 greatest American children's books published between 1776 and 1976. Previously adapted for the screen in 1973 as an animated musical featuring the voices of Debbie Reynolds and Henry Gibson, Charlotte's Web returns to charm a new generation of moviegoers in Gary Winick's heartwarming but never saccharine live-action film version of White's barnyard fable. Save for the glut of cornball jokes sprinkled throughout the narrative by screenwriters Susannah Grant and Karey Kirkpatrick (Chicken Run), Charlotte's Web honors the spirit of the 1952 classic by imparting White's life lessons with sweet gravity. - Tim Knight
