Methinks there is something else ahoof here, since no one could be dim-witted enough to swallow this cinematic goulash without taking a step back from the trough first.
Gordy is a pleasant trifle aimed squarely at audiences in search of squeaky-clean family entertainment.
It is possible that some children will be tickled at the very idea of a talking pig, even one as bland as Gordy. They will probably be children who have never seen any movie, ever.
Gordy is a sweet little movie, ideal for youngsters and easy to take for parents, about the adventures of a pig so adorable that he could turn us all into vegetarians.
This little piggy goes whee!-whee!-whee! all the way home. But will parents go for Gordy? Not in a pig's eye!
Fortunately, Gordy turns to fun whenever it wallows in too much goofiness.
Cute to the point of nausea, Gordy includes every barnyard cliché in the book.
The film tosses a few mild, satirical darts at public relations and advertising, but otherwise it's strictly hokum from the heartland.
This may have sounded like a cute idea on paper, but as kids pictures go this is the worst to come along in memory.
