Reviews

“I bought this video for my daughter when I was going through my vegan phase spurred, two-fold, by my love of healthier eating and animals. I was hoping to instill empathy in her by utilizing this classic story in movie form. I’m not sure if it worked in that aspect but the movie was a hit and I love Julia Roberts as the voice of Charlotte. This movie is certainly endearing.” – Tya Collier, Amazon

“There is an incredible shift from the human point of view in the film to the animal one that is almost seamless unless you’re looking for it. I was, and it was still so effortless that the transition doesn’t jar viewers at all. The handoff is smooth and remains highly believable. The story is timeless and will always be around. But it’s been waiting all this time for movie-making magic to truly unlock a way for audiences to watch it presented so much in the flesh. If you want to have a great time and be a child again, see Charlotte’s Web. If you want to bring delight to a child, take one with you. You’ll be glad you did.” – Mel Odom, Amazon

“This sweet story has an excellent overall storyline with a fabulous moral that is good for everyone. Thanks to the talking animals it’s easily able to keep even young ones entertained without realizing they’re learning a valuable lesson in the overall movie. I read the book as a child and can recall watching a really cheesy cartoon version of it several times throughout elementary and middle school. Although a small part of me still loves that awful, generic cartoon this version is without a doubt superior. They did a great job recreating the story and characters for the screen and it was inline with the book. My daughter and I both enjoyed watching this and it’s a must have for every child.” – Andrea Williams, Amazon
