This is a lovely film 🙂 Julia Roberts is lovely as the eponymous character, Dakota Fanning is a delightful Fern, and Dominic Scott Kay is an adorable Wilbur- if you see the special features, he does come across as quite a shy little boy
Lovely film 🙂 <3
Decent watch, probably won’t watch again, but can recommend for younger audiences.
It’s based off of a famous book, Dakota Fanning, Steve Buscemi, Julia Roberts are all charming in their own ways, but I never realized what a dud of a character Wilbur was before this. Sure, he’s a happy-go-lucky guy and social trend setter, but he’s a character that needs a lot of help and doesn’t even really give back.
The story feels like a more modern fable: there is a lesson of morality and life here, but it is a lot more subtle than I’m used to fables being. Of course this has a cooked in version of explaining life and death to young children, but it feels like it tries to convey that a life well served, however short, is good life. This does make the movie oddly charming, but I can’t say that it makes it as great as I remember the book being.
Now, that may be nostalgia glasses, or maybe I have them for the this movie, but I think, in the end, it’s an average movie with a good story that kids might like.
Take the Kids, Read the Book
I have for years adored the book Charlotte’s Web. As a parent of two children, I was happy to own the 1973 animated version of this book, which I believe was a splendid adaptation of the book.
I was somewhat apprehensive about taking my children to see this movie because I was afraid that it would be so different from the animated film that they already knew by heart and loved, I feared that my children would immediately have a disdain for this new version.
I was pleasantly surprised. My seven year old and four year old both laughed, sat at the edge of their seats, and yes, cried with the movie. I enjoyed the movie for the most part. There was enough subtle adult humor that I laughed at, which my children did not “get”.
However, as brilliant as Steve Buscemi’s narration was, I was sorely disappointed with Julia Roberts performance.
Charlotte is a loving, wise spider, almost a foster parent to Wilbur. I found Ms. Robert’s narration dull, humdrum and frankly, tedious. I could actually visualize her reading her lines into the microphone, her hands and body moving slightly with the flowing of her words … all the while Ms. Roberts was counting the dollars in her mind that she would collect for this job. It sounded like she was simply doing her job, and frankly, with little or no conviction, compassion or empathy.
Perhaps Ms. Roberts reading of children’s stories would be best left to those times with her own children. Not to paying audiences.
The animation was very good, impressive most of the time. Steve Buscemi as Templeton is definitely a fine performance; Dakota Fanning will continue to capture America’s heart for many years to come.
I wish that I could rate the movie higher, because it was a fine adaptation of the book. However, Julia Roberts performance was so disappointing that I cringe to think of her ever narrating another animated character.
Take your children, they will love it. Just try to ignore Ms. Roberts.
a very good movie
I saw this movie with my two sons and wife and we all enjoyed it. We were very familiar with both the book and original animated movie, which we highly enjoyed. This movie is very well done both in terms of money spent, but also in the time and quality taken. The story moves along nicely, never dragging, and the emotions are never overwhelming. I do have to say that I missed Henry Gibson as the voice of Wilbur but that was a personal bias, the young actor who voiced Wilbur did a good job. My sons found many things to laugh at and the darker moments, (not wanting to spoil anything for anyone who does not know the story)are handled deftly so sensitive children will not get upset. An excellent family movie.
