This little piggy goes whee!-whee!-whee! all the way home. But will parents go for Gordy? Not in a pig's eye!

Alas, Gordy is no Charlotte's Web. It's not even a threat to Mr. Ed.

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.

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.

Gordy is a pleasant trifle aimed squarely at audiences in search of squeaky-clean family entertainment.

Hardly hogs Babe's spotlight.

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.

I can't recommend it for people like me, but there are many other kinds of people in the world, some of them children who believe that pigs can talk.

[The] screenplay is as bland as an afternoon in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, though the director, Australian animal-mockumentary-maker Mark Lewis, adds a touch of menace by using extreme close-ups, bizarre angles and other stylish camera work.

A lot happens, it moves quickly, and the film is filled with minor characters who nicely round things out; my young companion watched the film from beginning to end, loving it.

This may have sounded like a cute idea on paper, but as kids pictures go this is the worst to come along in memory.

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.

The film tosses a few mild, satirical darts at public relations and advertising, but otherwise it's strictly hokum from the heartland.
