Short Takes: `Charlotte's Web,' `Black Christmas,'...
Charlotte's Web (Paramount, 2006) - I had high hopes for this, given its rave reviews and a hearty recommendation from a co-worker, but was so bored I couldn't finish it. I assume that Wilbur the baby pig does not become Christmas dinner, which, when I pulled out, was the only potential complication in the idyllic lives of the barn animals and their human friend (the always charming Dakota Fanning). The animals weren't that funny, except for Templeton the rat, marvelously voiced by Steve Buscemi. The voice of Charlotte the spider, Julia Roberts, sounded more like a voice-over than something coming out of a critter. I'll give it this much: The animal effects are amazing, a flawless blending of the real thing with computer generated images. This movie could not have been made 20 years ago. DVD extras include two commentary tracks, multiple featurettes (some better than the movie), two music videos and a 'hilarious gag reel' (it's not). G. Read more
