    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. It is interesting how children and animals interact and speak together. The casting is very good. For example, Fern is spoken by Julia Roberts. The movie is based on the novel by E.B. White. It is very similar to the movie, only some scenes are different. I found the movie brilliant and thought-provoking because the voices fit to the characters very well. For example, there is a rat in the movie and the voice is very nasty just like him. At the end Charlotte dies, that’s tragic because she and Wilbur were good friends. It’s like when your mother dies. This shows that animals also have feelings. That’s why the movie is so interesting for me. Expand

    One of the worst movies I've seen in a while, Charlotte's Web contributes nothing to cinema other than fake sympathy and overdramatic performances that do nothing but make me yawn.

  1. The endearingly enduring 1952 E.B. White novel about friendship and salvation, has been turned into a beautifully rendered motion picture that's full of warmth, wit and wonder.

    Nowhere to be found is any dramatic surprise, heightening of the pulse or genuine pulling of heartstrings. Gary Winick's direction consists of button pushing, and the mechanics are palpable at every step.

    Still, with such stellar source material, this Charlotte's Web won't disgrace your childhood memories -- or your child.
