Ruth, Babe, 1895-1948; Motion picture reviews
If you like scatological humor, overdone caricature, stupidity masking as innocence, then you might well enjoy The Babe, the over hyped, over promoted new film from Universal Pictures starring John Goodman as the Bambino. If you go to this film in search of the definitive life of George Herman Ruth, as is promised by Director Arthur Hiller and writer-producer John Fusco, you will be greatly disappointed.
