Still shot from the movie: Charlotte’s Web.

Charlotte’s Web

A perfectly ordinary farming community suddenly becomes perfectly extraordinary, thanks to a not quite ordinary friendship between a tiny pig called Wilbur (voice of Dominic Scott Kay) and a wise spider named Charlotte (voice of Julia Roberts). This live-action adaptation of E.B. White's classic children's novel (featuring some amazing computer generated effects) is equally extraordinary. Get the movie review and more. »

Why Is Charlotte’s Web Rated G?


Young Fern volunteers to become the mother of a runt-sized piglet when she sees her father pick up an axe that he intends to use on the animal. The rest of the plot centers on Wilbur avoiding the usual fate of domestic pigs, although the threat is implied rather than discussed or shown. The barnyard animals establish their pecking order through name-calling and some flatulence/belching jokes—one mild expletive is heard. Some comedic crows looking for food threaten a rat’s life—slapstick antics ensue. A spider explains how she sucks the blood out of insects for food. A twelve-year-old girl and boy hold hands. Some children are also shown riding in the back of a pick-up truck.
