Critic Reviews for Gordy
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.
25 little piggies put in squealing duty as Gordy. Too bad they couldn't have gone whole hog and played the other parts in this curdled curly tale.
Audience Reviews for Gordy
What this movie does a terrible job at is establishing a norm. Plus the whole side plots that have nothing to do with Gordy finding his family and are so far beyond what a child would ever be interested in (re: changing camera lenses, dead grandfathers, line dancing).
This made me crave a Hardee's bacon burger after the credits started rolling. Seriously though, "Gordy" is a weak excuse for a barnyard comedy-drama. It might be wholesome for families, but not even children would find it a fun movie. It didn't just rip off "Charlotte's Web", but this was the movie that almost made everyone not see "Babe", as they both premiered the same year.
I've seen bits and pieces adding up to most of the movie that is known as Gordy on cable over the last month or so and I think it's safe to say this is one of the worst movies ever made. Picture a corn-fed, white trash, extra-chromosome boasting version of Babe. Just make sure you strip it of any creativity, suspend any and all disbelief then feed it a obscene amount of high fructose corn syrup and the worst parts of American culture. I know its a kids movie, but kids are not stupid and what you feed them now shapes who they turn out to be later. I swear, it should be a law that any and everyone who had anything to do with this movie should be hunted down and kicked until they're dead. With the exception of Roy Clark and Boxcar Willie. Their appearances don't excuse the vileness of this movie though and despite my utter hatred for this movie I'll watch it until the end if I see its on TV. (And really? Who names their kid Hanky? "Come on, Snotrag! Let's go to the tractor pull!") If an alien culture was to come down to Earth, hell-bent on destroying us and mentioned it was because of Gordy I would surrender. Completely surrender...

|Jessica Royce:||Gilbert, you promised to help me. How can you even ask me to complete with a pig?|
|Cousin Jake:||Pigs are intelligent animals, and this one is real smart. Boy, I bet his I.Q. is as high as mine!|
