Even animals find themselves typecast sometimes. This Australian film about a pig who thinks he's a sheepdog is a charmer and a keeper.

What Parents Like: Babe faces pressure to conform but retains his individuality and hams it up during a sheep-herding contest.

What Kids Like: Children have no problem believing that animals can talk and learn. The sight of a pig herding sheep is a rare and wondrous thing.
