This is the epitome of family films and is the one family film all must answer to. To actually make a talking pig amongst others truly believable characters is not an easy feat at all. However, Chris Noonan excels completely. This is one of the great films because it has both unforgettable and astonishing moments you just don't see very often in family films. I loved it as a kid, and I love it even more now.
Harmless children's fairy tale that is generally of much better quality then most family films (and more adult with its darker themes of lost innocence than you'd expect) but its aggressively feel good gloss at times made my teeth hurt. The slightly bizarre sequel is more interesting.
