A Charlotte's Web Review

From the Hollywood Reporter!

Seems like a decent review, here's an except below.

The result, with its gently contemporized dialogue that still remains quite true to White's original wording, offers a family-friendly primer on the cycle of life that's careful to not overplay the inherent sentiment.

Factor in terrific work by an inspired cast of voices -- including Julia Roberts as Charlotte, Steve Buscemi (a perfect Templeton the Rat), John Cleese (an acerbic sheep), Oprah Winfrey (a chatty goose) and 10-year-old Dominic Scott Kay in the key role of Wilbur, the wide-eyed spring pig -- and you've got a license to spin boxoffice gold that should continue through the holidays and into the new year.

Unfortunately it's up against Eragon this weekend, so who knows what'll happen!
