I got rather innoculated against Babe because it came out on DVD when my little niece was 3 years old, and she watched it incessantly! I was staying with my parents in London at the time, and they were babysitting her, so I saw rather more of this film than I would have wished!
It is a good, fun film though! And Australians were very proud that this Aussie film found success worldwide!
