Babe: Pig in the City  AUG 27 1999

Babe: Pig in the City is a very dark, well-crafted movie that tanked at the box office. Hollywood seems not to be able to effectively market movies like this. I mean, how was I to know that an orangutan gave a *much* better performance in this movie than that of the entire cast of American Pie put together. And I'm not joking.

Speaking of good movies that do poorly at the box office, I would love to see the Iron Giant get another crack at trying to find an audience. The idea is that they re-release the movie around the holidays, hopefully learning from their promotional mistakes the first time around. <crossing my fingers>
